If you’re a fan of beer then you’ll be excited to hear that Savannah has a healthy craft beer community. Getting out on a Savannah brewery tour is a great way to discover some of the great craft beer Savannah has to offer!
There are many reasons to tour a Savannah brewery. Not only do learn all about the intricate beer brewing process, you may also get a chance to meet the brewmaster.
Of course, one of the main reasons to go on a Savannah brewery tour is to sample the variety of beers. Brewery tasting rooms have unique advantages over most other pubs and bars in that the beer they serve is as fresh as it can possibly be. Beer served at a brewery has never suffered through the potentially rough handling and uneven temperatures inherent in delivery and storage.
Further, most craft beer is dispensed by complex and carefully maintained draft systems by people passionate about each and every drop of beer that passes through them. Most bars and restaurants don’t do this and, consequently, quality suffers. Tasting rooms are lovingly cared for by the brewers, so you know you’re tasting their beer at it’s very best.
Finally, many brewers have a special beer or two on tap in their tasting rooms that you’ll find nowhere else. These unique, regional taste treats make brewery tours not just worthwhile but absolute no-brainers for the true beer enthusiast.
