Best Savannah Brew Pubs: Craft, Draft and On Tap

Just about everyone in Savannah knows that if you want a cold PBR, there’s no better place to go than legendary bar Pinkie Master’s. But what if your taste in beer is a little more refined? The city has a few very reputable establishments dedicated to the art of beer and several more that take their beer menus seriously.

It should come as no surprise that one of the best places for beer is World of Beer, a regional chain that features a mind-boggling selection of 500 varieties of beer, including 62 on tap. The Distillery is another great choice for beer aficionados, boasting 100 craft beers and a rotating selection of 21 beers on tap.

Those who want great beer that’s brewed locally should check out Moon River Brewing Company, which features unique choices such as Depravity or Divinity, an Abbey-style Dubbel.

If you’re a fan of beer from the U.K., then be sure to check out one of Savannah’s many pubs, which are stocked with favorites from England, Scotland and Ireland. Great choices include British pub Churchill’s, Scottish pub Molly MacPherson’s and Irish pub Kevin Barry’s

There are also several restaurants that specialize in beer, including the Crystal Beer Parlor, the Bier Haus and Circa 1875 Gastropub

And if you’re craving a brewsky but want to avoid the bar scene, be sure to stop by the Beer Growler. Though technically a retail establishment, the Beer Growler makes this list for its superb selection of beer and super cool refill system.
