We came to the Distillery on a recent trip to Savannah for a late dinner and some beer. The atmosphere is standard, semi-upscale beer bar with lots of beer signs and some interesting prohibition era memorabilia and anti-moonshine posters as well as silent movies playing on the TVs. In some ways it reminded me of the downstairs bar at the Brickstore.
The beer selection was excellent with many regional brews and some semi-rare offerings from other parts of the country. There was an extensive bottle list as well. Everything was served in proper glassware and the severs mostly seemed to know what they were talking about.
By the time we arrived they were only serving a limited menu, but there was still a nice selection of sandwiches available. I had an Elvis style peanut butter and banana with bacon sandwich and it was just as awesome as it sounds.
A nice experience overall, the Distillery lives up to its reputation pretty well and I will definitely make another stop there next time I am in Savannah.

I worked here for almost a year. I loved every thing about the bar, and now I distribute beer to them. It's a gem, and the Volens have done an amazing job with the entire place. I go at least once a week and get a flight ($18), enjoy some fried pickles and pretzels. They also have a great craft liquor selection, but they flavor their own liquors in house too. The Pickle Bloody Mary is (seriously) the best in Savannah, and naturally, the top it with a stout beer.

Every time I a take a trip to Savannah I always make sure to stop in The Distillery. The people there are great. They always have some good beers on tap and in the bottle cellar and usually have some goodies tucked away that aren't on the menu if you know what I mean. The first time I went me and a buddy brought some beers from FL to share with the staff (the staff here is overall really knowledgeable and very friendly) and to show their appreciation for bringing some good treats that they haven't had before one of the bartenders went home after his shift and brought us some stuff we just cant get in Florida. This is my favorite spot to get a beer in Savannah and a must stop every time I go. No Bud, Miller or Coors products wich is nice in a craft beer establishment.
