A cute bar in downtown Savannah. It is an old bar, established after Prohibition in 1933. There are a lot of old pictures and memorabilia on the walls. The draught beer list had ~20 taps, but most were not very exciting (this is from someone who lives in a state with pretty good distribution). They do have a few local taps on such as Southland, Coastal Empire and a couple regionals such as Terrapin and Monday Night Brewing. They also have a standard bottle list (includes some regionals like Duck Rabbit, Highland) and a "special" bottle list with mostly bombers. Then there is a section of "beers your father drank" such as Ballantine, Dixie, Genesee Cream Ale, etc. Fun to have, though probably not of interest to most craft beer drinkers. I didnít have any of the food (it was standard pub fare, perhaps a scratch above by the looks of it). Overall it was a nice place to stop for a beer but I wouldnít spend too much time here.

Stopped in for a quick lunch while in Savannah. Big open bar with old pictures, kinda cool. Service was attentive. Several local and national selections on the beer menu. Food was decent. Appetizers were good. Prices were in line with every other pub Iíve visited. Overall: not bad, not super memorable either.

Has about 25 taps equally split between national and local beers, nothing hard to find but a good local place off Liberty with excellent crab soup, reasonable prices , Good service, worth a try

Went here on a Monday afternoon, pretty chill spot (I heard it does get crazy on the weekend). It has a old american pub vibe with lots of black and white pictures of people celebrating the end of prohibition. The owner was really nice, the bartender was a little weird. The beer selection was pretty good for savannah, with some mostly locals & regionals, but I LOVE that they carry a section on the beer menu called "beers your father drank" with classics like "lone star", "gennessee cream ale" and "iron city" from before the "big 3" macros came to dominate the industry in the 70s. Worth a stop just to have one of those in the classic american pub setting. The food was good, too!

We visited the Crystal Beer Parlor on recommendation from friends and were not disappointed. Very nice traditional interior. Unusual beer selection of "classic" US beers such as PBR & Coors and much more exciting stuff from the likes of New Belgium. Food was rather tasty pub fare. Service was very good indeed. A worth-while stop for food and a few beers in Savannah.

Visited for lunch on a Saturday, first stop of the day after a long day of traveling. We had not chosen this spot for beer reasons, so I was pleased to see the beer options available. A bunch of local micros, national craft and seasonals. Not an overwhelming selection, but very solid. The food I had (she crab soup, shrimp sandwich) were both really solid, and service was great. Tons of character in the building, and a big bar area. If you are in Savannah, I would certainly hit this spot.

This place was a gem of a find. There is a nice mix of cool craft brews and throw back beers that are not always east to find. Good pub grub with some fun coastal southern flair. Grab a to go cup and walk over to the park when you are ready to head out.

(Visited 01/2013): Crystal Beer Parlor is located in an old brick building in downtown Savannah on West Jones, a couple blocks off Liberty. Street parking is available in the surrounding area.

The interior of the restaurant features a bar along the right side and table seating on the left. More seating in the rear. Hanging ceiling fans and a pretty stamped copper backsplash behind the taps.

As for the beers, Crystal Beer Parlor has 15 on tap, which included New Belgium and Coastal Empire. Over 50 bottles too, featuring "Beers Of Our Fathers" retro brands plus some craft beers.

Service on an early afternoon at the bar was good. The bartender was friendly and attentive.

We did not try any food on our visit.

Overall this is a cool spot that is a short walk from The Distillery. I liked The Distillery more but would still visit this spot again next time in Savannah.

Wow, the exterior of this place wouldnít lead you to believe its a fairly nice pub inside. Found one or two gems on the beer list, which is maybe a step behind the nearby Distillery. They do have a unique twist with a long selection of retro brands. I didnít eat. The menu looked to be fairly standard pub fare.
