Right on Bay street on the edge of the historic district. Beers were average, with one (the Oude Brune) better than average and one (the Wit) on the ’undrinkable’ side of average. Decent place, food was OK, service was quite good. Couple bonus points for the location and it’s convenience to the heart of the historic district, but in general, not a lot of reason to stop here.
Visited on the late morning of 19/02/15 just after opening. Sat at the bar with Brorino and we pretty much had the place to ourselves whilst we worked our way through a tasting flight. 7 or 8 beers on tap including a cask line. Typical old skool brew pub range and quality. No obvious defects in the beers ... just a bit on the bland side. The place is certainly more eatery than a drinking den and most of the tables were laid out ready for lunch. Service was friendly and the girl chatted to us at the bar, that said she had no one else to concern her until a couple of diners showed up just before we left.
Didn’t try the food but beer wise it was just fine ... rock up .. do tasting tray in half an hour ..... move on kind of a place.
Cool old building in the main part of downtown. They have a large beer garden area next to the building. Slightly loud as it is on a corner and right next to the street (may have been a building there that was removed?? Seems big enough to be an old building footprint). The outdoor beer garden section has a nice bar and bathrooms and such. Would be a great place to enjoy some beers. I didn’t get to try many of their beers but what I had was good. They had several guest tap beers, some from other local breweries. Worthwhile place to go to while in Savannah.
2-25-2013. An old building undergoing construction for a beer garden. Service is average and was here during lunch time. They have eight (8) of their beers on tap plus two guest taps. They have bar and table seating. The brewery is visible from the bar area. The brewmaster stopped at our table and had an enjoyable beer discussion. This is a place worth checking out.
Brewpub with pretty good food and a decent sized selection of their not-too-bad beer. The only real issue I had was the service. There were some significant blunders, and no freebies were offered to make up for it. Still if you’re looking for new beers, it’s an alright place to pop into.
Visited in the afternoon, and found the place fairly welcoming. Sat at the inside bar to get a break from the heat, so I can’t say anything about the outdoor portion of the place other than that it looked inviting. The house beers ranged from mediocre to solid, with the best being the collaboration with Southbound called Duppy Conqueror. 10 total house beers available. Sampler was reasonable enough, though you could argue slightly overpriced.

Clean brewpub. Good service, decent beer, clean pissery and good food. I enjoyed my visit.
Theydon_bros and I stopped in to get a Georgia state place tick (since my Atlanta airport place tick is only borderline counts). Stopped in early, shortly after opening and were just about the only customers in the place. Sitting at the bar you can’t see much of the restaurant the way it’s laid out. The brewery was off to the one side and the tables and the bathrooms were on the other side.
They had about 10 taps or so, most of which were meh. I think the honey habanero cask might have been the best of the bunch. The server was friendly enough and the prices weren’t bad but the beer isn’t really worth making the trip for.
Now, what is worth making the trip for is the city of Savannah. Each block has a small park in the middle, so driving through that area is tough but there are tons of statues and other non-beer(degenerate) things to look at. I wouldn’t mind spending a day or two in this area to get a little bit of culture. I’d probably find a different brewery to drink at though.
Moon River has two sections - a large pub-like diner serving their own beers and a separate bar with twelve guest beers adjacent to a nice outdoor area and shady patio. We had a flight of seven beers which were passable, if not spectacular.
