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.

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.

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

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.

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.
