Service was awesome, didn't just pour my beer but made me feel welcome and explained my selection to me. Bartender was very knowledgable. Never seen such a wise selection of brews. My beer was an American black ale which was delicious. I can't wait to go to the ones closer to home.

Stopped here in the early afternoon after walking the downtown area of Savannah. We found a seat and were waited on by friendly staff within a minute or two. They have a fairly extensive tap list and a large bottle selection. I didn't see anything real special in their offerings, no whales or hard to find brews, but a decent selection all the same.

The beers were served at the right temperature and they had the appropriate glassware for the beer-style served (nice touch). All the staff seemed friendly and the ones I dealt with seemed to have a decent knowledge of the beers they had, styles and which were their personal favorites. They seemed to know enough to recommend beer styles to some customers new to the craft-scene. The only time I noticed them get annoyed is when some customers kept ordering beers, starting to drink them and then complaining that they didn't like them. I could sympathize, that's what samplers are for.

We spent quite a while in here and had an enjoyable time. The only snivel I have about the place is the Westbrook IPA I ordered (not on tap, in a can from their cooler) had a date code over 5 months old. They poured for me so I didn't get to check it before it was too late.

Other than that, if their tap list doesn't thrill you, check out The Distillery or The Beer Growler which are close by and both have equally large offerings on tap.

Cheers!

This is a chain bar with a rediculously large selection, draught and bottle alike. Their staff could use a little training in customer service, but they serve a large quantity of people in this place, so maybe they just don't have enough staff? The bar itself is one of the biggest in Savannah.

You can sample any draught beer they have, which I find is a huge plus, though this is common in many bars. We have gotten a little hint of attitude from time to time when wanting to sample 3 or 4 different brews (between two people) before selecting which one we wanted to purchase. You won't find a beer selection like they have anywhere else in Savannah. One thing to keep in mind is this is in the heart (downtown) of the biggest tourist town in probably all of GA, at least coastal GA. So the prices can be a bit steep. Again, you are in a bar so you have to expect that.

The atmosphere is OK, but there are typically a lot of GIs and college kids. The college kids aren't bad, but GIs almost always just come in there to get shitface blind and act like idiots, on top of the fact that they typically come in packs of 5 or more people. Not all the GIs are like this, but a lot of them seem to follow that very pattern.

They have live bands (local) that play various days of the week and set a pretty good vibe for the place. Outside of overwhelmed, and sometimes rude, staff, and annoyingly drunk GIs, I am not sure much would keep me from recommending this place to try some new brew. I would suggest going on any night, other than Friday or Saturday though.

Went here on an extended wknd with wife and fellow beer nerd friend. Place is OK, several hi def tv's, small outside front patio, upstairs seating and small bar, about average environment. Beer selection is vast, about 40-50 draft with large range in styles, but nothing exceedingly rare. It was craft beer week and they had a Dogfish tap takeover, and some limited releases one night like 61 IPA and Namaste, etc. but other than those maybe St Bernardus Abt 12 the only thing I might call rare. Don't get me wrong though, there was plenty to choose from, and no macro crap. Bottle selection also vast, around 300 I'd say with the typical Belgian selection as well. Only one or two real finds here though: grabbed a Founders Doom and Cisco Island Saison in bottles, which was a nice surprise. Prices are fair, but service is average or below. Only one of the waitresses really seemed to care they were working there.

I went back one night for a tapping of a local keg of Southbound Brewing IPA, which turned out to be an excellent IPA, but 2 of the bartenders didn't know anything about the beer: the name, the style, or even the price when it was tapped. So unless you know exactly what you want, then you'll have to point and choose, the staff won't be able to help you. And they have no food, but you can bring your own in.

In the end, a great place to get a beer and watch a game (which is what I did), but if you want a beer experience, then go elsewhere in town like The Distillery (I hold no stock in The Distillery, it's just a better atmosphere for a drinking destination).

Live music, engaging atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, and most of all...quality brews free of the macro variety from around the world. From American and Canadian to Belgian, German, and Eastern European (Russia is well represented with the Baltika beers), whatever beer you desire WOB has it. Only downsides: no kitchen and the establishment is closed on Sundays because of a Georgia law that requires a bar to open then if food sales dominate the revenue. Other than that, a sweet spot to hit up when you walk around on Broughton Street on a Saturday night.
