Great historical building. Really solid selection of beer. They were doing a Coastal Empire feature, featuring many of their beers and a free glass if you ordered one. Other beers on tap really good too. Tasty food. Favorite place I went to in Savannah.

Nice bar. Decent selection and our waitress new her stuff. Felt comfortable here. Would definitely stop back.
A nice bar with the feel of a neighbourhood pub. It was established in 1933, presumably just as prohibition ended, and it looks as if it may not have changed much since.Thereís some nice art deco marquetry and tiling on the back of the bar, some interesting black and white photos high up on the walls and a fire extinguisher way past its sell by date. The choice of beer was quite good - around 27 taps and fifty or more bottles.

Was told to head here straight from the airport by the guy at the counter. It did not disappoint.
I donít know the history of the building but itís been around for 100+ years. A cozy spot on the edge of downtown with a few different rooms and an old school vibe.
We enjoyed the extensive beer list with a strong nod to the local breweries. If you arenít shopping for beer to take back, this is best way to try the local "goods".
Food was solid too. Recommend getting the half order of the larger apps if you have two people. Portions are huge!
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.
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.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
