I go to Moon River mostly because I love their Rosemary IPA. The other beers I have tried are good, nothing memorable, and their service and food is fair (for the price). The staff does not seem too knowledgeable or engaging when it comes to the beers, and even on slow days the service is lacking. A cool place to have a drink, especially at night. Have not done the haunted pub crawl, but this would certainly be a good place to do it in. For food, there are certainly better places in Savannah, but Moon River Brewing should be on your radar for some interesting beers and the haunted atmosphere. That is what you are in Savannah for, is it not? (648 characters)

Came by already full of local beer on a trip to Savannah. Had a flight, which featured a good handful of seasonal/guest beers. Nothing on that hand that was out of this world, but some interesting flavors worth checking out. Worth stopping by just for the Swamp Fox IPA. Also, the beer wasn't served cold, which was OK I guess--we'll call it "almost cold." Service was good, and I want more Swamp Fox! (401 characters)

Came here on a recent visit to Savannah. We sat out on the beer garden. It was a beautiful evening, albeit hot and humid! I ordered a flight. A flight consists of all 9 of their beers. The only downfall of this was by the time i got to the 6th one, they were getting quite warm due to the heat and humidity outside. The beer was alright. Nothing bad, nothing outstanding. I did like how they had "guest beers" on tap though. I think it gives a good option for people to explore other GA beers. The service was a little slow, but that's because it was the bartender service the entire beer garden. Eventually, they got him some help and it improved. I didn't have the food, so can't comment on that. I'd go back next time I'm in Savannah. (737 characters)

Stopped at Moon River on St. Patrick's Day and while the place was obviously packed from wall-to-wall, the service was still excellent. The bartender even made time to chat with me about one of the beers I asked about (Swamp Fox IPA). The food was great for bar food and the selection was decent as well. I'll definitely be visiting Moon River again on my next trip to Savannah. (381 characters)

First microbrewery I have visited that served their beers warm (at least 55-60F). I was told "that is the way they serve beer in Europe". Having lived in Europe for six years I can tell you that isn't true. It isn't served ice cold but it definitely isn't served warm. Maybe the owner needs to go there. Too bad. (316 characters)

Stopped by here for dinner on a recent tour of the South with a friend. Not a bad place to visit if you're in Savannah, though I wouldn't go out of my way to seek it out. Nice local spot with growler fills and a decent selection of beer styles for a small brewery. Food's better than average bar food with a slight coastal touch from various shrimp options. Had a flight of their beers to sample them all and was pretty happy with the experience. It did seem rather odd that they leave out their highest gravity beer from the flight, though, since they have a spot for it on the flight try. Anyways, if you're looking for something local and don't want to drop $35 on seafood at the tourist-targeted restaurants, this is a fun alternative. (745 characters)

Gene and Pink always have the best beer and best food on Bay Street. My favorite place to go in all of Savannah! (112 characters)

Generally uses the supposed novelty of being a brewpub to draw in tourists because the beer and food are average. Had the pale ale, which was fairly flavorless and lacked body. The porter is better. If you are looking for good beer, I'd recommend going elsewhere. (266 characters)

Great location within walking distance of the riverfront. Tried the Captain's Porter and the Slovannah Pale Ale, along with a burger and onion rings, all very good. Noted with amusement some of the "tourists" who came in, bought pints, and left after barely tasting them-BMC drinkers apparently. The seasonal Tater Ale (sweet potato as opposed to the ubiquitous pumpkin ales prevalent this time of year) was a perfect finish to lunch. (437 characters)
