Great brewpub, great staff, great location. Brewmaster tries hard to create a lineup of decent standards and beefed-up seasonals including some barrel-aged brews and cask ales. They are going beyond the call of duty, taking the beers more seriously than they need to considering the wealth of tourist dollars spent here. But in spite of that itís a localís place too and lots of regulars drink here. Bartenders drink at the bar when their shift is over and are very knowledgeable about the house beer and are humorously anti-macro. Oh! And the best is "Would you like that for here or to go?" You can get a beer in a plastic cup to go, itís so civilized in Savannah.

April 2007 - A bit grungy, but this place a block off the riverwalk had a few yummy brews and the food was OK. Remember the server didnít know much about beer, which is always a letdown in a brewpub.

(Visited 01/2013): Moon River Brewing Company is in downtown Savannah on West Bay right by the river in the historic district. Street parking is available in the surrounding streets, and there are a couple garages in walking distance.

The interior features a large segmented room with the wraparound bar immediately past the host stand in the center. There is table and booth seating on the right, and more in the rear. The brewing equipment is behind glass along the left wall. Funky artwork on the walls, and some merch in the rear.

Moon River has around 10 of their beers on tap, and they offer a moon-shaped sampler. The beers are decent for the most part and include a lot of common styles plus a couple interesting brews like Jasmine Saison and OMG (Oh My Grapefruit) on my visit.

Service on our slow lunch visit was good. The server was knowledgeable about the beers and friendly.

Food at Moon River is pretty good, both my colleague and I enjoyed our lunch.

Overall this is a nice spot in a great town.

Definitely liked Moon River. Great bartenders who love beer, pimp beer and work hard to make sure youíre having a good time. The beer list is long, with some fine choices. The IPA is tasty and the BA Imperial Stout made us repeat visitors. I like the to-go option, too. Moon River surprised us.

Downtown Savannah setting for this brew pub. You can see the river while looking out the front windows as you eat and sample the eight beers currently available. The beers came out near room temperatrue, but that did not seem to distract from the fine brews produced here. The food is great with a nice selection of seafood and then your standard pub fare. Prices are very reasonsable given the setting.

I was focused on spending most of time here on this trip and I did indeed go multiple times on my vacation. However, it didnít have the homeliest or most enthusistic atmosphere. Regardless, it is quite enjoyable and one of the more enjoyable stops on my trip. The swamp fox was memorable and menu looks quite good. I will eat dinner here on Friday, but as for now Iíve only consumed the beer. The layout is spacious and clean while the waiters provide efficient, friendly serivice. I have complaints about the location and did enjoy the beer well enough. Iíd say itís a must stop for a beer enthsiast visiting Savannah.

This brewpub in downtown Savannah is tastefully decorated with lots of dark wood, different rooms on different floors which manage to feel united, and nice artwork on the walls. Service was excellent; friendly, fast, and helpful, all with a genuine smile. I guess thatís what they call Southern hospitality! Beers I had that day were all very competently brewed, quite flavorful, textbook examples of their respective styles. I sincerely think they deserve more props for the quality of their beers. The food is also excellent, way over average for an American brewpub in my experience. Excellent home-made fries, utterly delicious Chicken and Sausage Creole with Romano cheese. Everyone else in my party was delighted with their food selection. I would definitely recommend a stopover at Moon River when anywhere in the vicinity of Savannah.

This is the bar in Savannah for young people. I liked the size, service, looks, location, and Savannah. The beer was interesting, nothing was a knock out but there was a couple of interesting offerings like the candy-dominated Belgian, and the IPA. Easy to meet people. I did not appreciate the smokers after 11 pm, who should have been next door at the Churchill. A must stop if you are passing through.

We visited numerous times on our holiday o Savannah. Moon River is nowadays split into two. The main part is a large traditional building which houses the brewpub and restaurant. This part serves only Moon River beers (7 of them on my visit) and pretty tasty food. I believe house beers have improved significantly with the new brewer. The focus is on session beers appropriate for the Georgia climate. The second half is the brand new patio bar area, which is much more modern in appearance. Here they have not only Moon River but a very solid selection of guest beers on tap. Stone, Southbound, Highland and plenty of New Belgium (6 on my visit!). Great all-round.

The best brewpub in Savannah. Being the only brewpub in the city and its location on the touristy riverfront, I was a little worried about its quality, but it actually turned out to be a great place. It has a gorgeous outdoor patio and bar (the bar does have a roof) which is great in the warm weather. They had about 8 house taps (tasty beers including. 3 IPAs, a IIPA, dry stout, Belgian pale ale, and a couple others) and they also had 5-6 guest taps (nothing too exciting). The beers were better than I expected. I didnít have any food, nor did most patrons, so Iím not sure of its quality. Overall, not a spot to be missed- the beer is great and itís Savannahís only brewpub!
