The Savannah Craft Brew Fest is a very unique event in that it appeals to more than just us craft beer people. Red Mountain Entertainment has created a “lifestyle” event where friends can gather and hang out in a fun and inviting atmosphere.

However, if you are a “beer geek” like us, be sure to snag the ever popular (always sells out) VIP ticket. VIP ticket holders gain access an hour early to the event along with access to complimentary food and craft beer not available to the general public. VIP ticket holders will also receive the opportunity for a private beer tour with the Savannah Brewers League. These tours will showcase different styles of beer, discuss how they are made and how they pair with food. Be sure to snag a VIP ticket to gain backstage access to this fun festival!

For the General Admission ticket holders, there are multiple beer gardens that boast over 150 different craft beers and unlimited sampling. The Original Sin Cider Garden and Moonlight Meadery Mead Garden will provide cider and mead for those interested in sampling other adult beverages. The World of Beer Mixology Garden brings a welcome change of pace with mixed craft beer cocktails created by local Savannah bartenders. Also returning this year are the educational seminars hosted by The World of Sam Adams. Seminar topics include Selecting the Perfect Glassware and The History of Sam Adams for those festival goers interested in gaining some craft beer knowledge. An exciting new addition to the this year’s festival is the beer and cheese pairing hosted by Orpheus Brewing Co. This event will allow attendees to taste different cheese styles and pair them with complimentary styles of beer. Other fun events throughout the day include live music, cornhole tournament, photo booth, and the Pabst Blue Ribbon Silent Disco!

  1. The Savannah Craft Brew Fest is awesome – but the fun doesn’t stop there because Savannah Craft Beer Week is happening all week long with dozens of locally sponsored tap takeovers, dinner pairings and even a 5K fun run. The full events calendar will go live soon, but keep an eye on for the latest.
