Why You Need to Check Out Moon River Brewing
1. Great Beer
The best part of visiting a brewery is, of course, the beer! Moon River brews a wide variety of beers throughout the year. Year-round favorites include Yoga Pants, a Southern-style pale ale with fruity aromas and brazen hoppiness, and Wild Wacky, a Belgian-style wheat ale spiced with orange peels, coriander seed, and a touch of chamomile. There are also a number of seasonal/specialty beers on tap.
2. Delicious Food
In addition to their fantastic brews, Moon River is committed to serving freshly-prepared foods made with the finest ingredients available. Dishes on the menu range from classic pub fare to gourmet Lowcountry cuisine. Choose from a variety of sandwiches, salads, burgers, and small plates. Or dig into a heaping plate of nachos. If you’re craving a taste of the south, we suggest ordering the slow smoke pork ribs. These Louis-style ribs are prepared with a house-made dry rub and cooked for hours, then finished with a sweet and smoky barbeque sauce. Yum!
3. Awesome Beer Garden
The 5,400-square-foot Beer Garden at Moon River Brewing opened on March 9, 2013. It features a single-story Garden House, kitchen, restrooms and a bar. The Beer Garden has its own menu and is a great place to dine outside on a warm Savannah night. You can even bring your dog!
4. Ghost Tours
Since its opening in 1999, the staff and customers of Moon River Brewing have encountered their fair share of paranormal activity. Bottles have been thrown by unseen forces, and people have reported being touched, pushed, and even slapped by invisible spirits. One prominent ghostly figure is “Toby,” who lurks in the bar’s billiard room and is known to shove patrons and staff.
Because of its mysterious past, Moon River Brewing is a regular stop on various ghost tours. The Creepy Crawl Haunted Pub Tour is a local favorite and takes guests through haunted restaurants, cemeteries, bars, and pubs, including Moon River. This pub crawl often sells out so make your reservations in advance.
