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.

Visited on a Monday around 7:30pm. Real quiet. Sat outside on a hot day.
This may be considered the best beer bar in Savannah, but it does not compare to many other bars across the country. It still may be your best option.
A - Five tables outside. What little I saw of inside seemed nice. Sort of a dark bar with lots of wood. 3.75
Q - They seem to serve in a proper glass, but those glasses were branded randomly (if that bothers you). Only ordered on tap beer as I was a little suspect of the turnover on the bottle menu. 4
Service – Was fine. Nice maybe a little slow. He could have sold me another beer but he waited to long and moved on. 3.75
S - Supposedly the best in savannah. If that is the case, then Ouch! Good but lacking. 10-15 on tap with another 50-75 in a bottle. A wide variety but little depth and few if any must haves. Drank a local Monday Night Bed Head (very good) and a Harpoon 100 Barrel Series #50 - Citra Victorious 3.75
F - You get what you pay for. It's good bar food but don't come with expectations for something more. 3.75
$ - As noted above you get what you pay for and I thought that it was good value.
