Craft Beer brewed in Savannah
Currently, there are four craft breweries in Savannah: Coastal Empire Beer Co., Service Brewing Co. and Southbound Brewing Company, and Moon River Brewing Company. Once Moon River decides to package some of their great brews in cans, we’ll make space for them in our cooler. Moon River Brewing (MRB) is one of the most haunted sites in Savannah. We enjoy the privilege of taking our legendary haunted pub tour to the upper and lower levels of MRB. You can start your tour with something from Cool Savannah before your guide takes you away on your journey to learn about the dark side of the haunted pubs of Savannah.
