Although beer has been the most popular alcoholic beverage in America for decades, it wasn’t until recent years that the craft beer industry began to flourish. A brewery is considered to be “craft” if it’s independent of outside corporate ownership, produces less than six million barrels per year, and uses traditional ingredients like malted barley. It seems like more craft breweries are popping up every day, and cities like Savannah, Georgia, are taking full advantage! The annual Savannah Craft Brew Fest attracts thousands of beer lovers to our city every Labor Day weekend and offers beer tastings, food, live music, and much more. If a trip to Savannah is in your future, book your stay at the Presidents’ Quarters Inn and see what makes the Savannah Craft Brew Fest so special.

At the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center across from the Savannah River, guests can enjoy a stunning backdrop of the city skyline as well as an unlimited two-ounce sampling of over 200 craft beers from around the world.

River Dog Brewing Co., Thomas Creek, Allagash, and Boulder Beer.
In addition to great brews, the festival offers multiple indoor and outdoor beer gardens including the World of Beer Mixology Garden where you’ll find unique craft beer cocktails created by local Savannah bartenders. Guests can also attend educational seminars presented by The World of Sam Adams that discuss topics like selecting the perfect glassware and the history of Sam Adams. Other fun events throughout the day include a beer and cheese pairing, live music, a corn hole tournament, a photo booth, and the Pabst Blue Ribbon Silent Disco.
The 9th Annual Savannah Craft Brew Fest will take place on VIP ticket that will give you access to early admission, complimentary food, and craft beer not available to the general public. VIP ticket holders will also receive a private beer tour with the Savannah Brewers League where you’ll explore different styles of beer and how they’re made.
