Welcome to part two of our two part Savannah breweries post.  This is just one part of a four part trip down to Georgia.  You can read Savannah part one here as well as check out our Hilton Head Island excursion here and Melissa’s must read Savannah Banana baseball attendance guide here. Trees & a Graveyard When you head to Savannah, be sure to make time to visit the Wormsloe Historic Site  and go see some awesome trees. Yes, it may sound crazy but the historic site has a road of well-manicured Live Oak trees with hanging Spanish moss.  While photos of the site are gorgeous, they do little justice to the actual brilliance of driving or walking down the road under these trees on a cool summer morning.  There is also a museum and walking trails displaying early settler life, which is also super interesting so be sure to […]

Savannah Breweries (pt 2)


Service Brewing 1
It’s late December and I’m currently on PTO so let’s get back to our Savannah Georgia beerventure.  We last left off with our stay in Hilton Head Island and now it is time to head to Savannah, GA for the sights, some baseball, a wild 4th of July celebration and of course the beer. Savannah, while being a fun little city, is probably not thought of as a traditional beer destination.  With only six breweries in and around the city, we were actually able to square away Savannah in a day; which isn’t a bad thing.  This gave us time to see the Savannah Bananas Baseball Team and visit an awesome tree grove and a graveyard.   Service Brewing Co. Immediately across the Talmadge Memorial Bridge and just on the outskirts of Savannah’s downtown is the veteran owned brewery – Service Brewing Co. The large and spacious brewery boasts fun […]

Stories on our Instagram are always hit or miss when it comes to engagement and as you’re already aware, engagement is vital for content creators.  While my memes (mostly) do well, the most engaging stories we post are our “scientific studies” – which are just groups of related polling questions.  Since we haven’t posted on the blog recently, please enjoy the results of our 2021 “studies” in aggregate.   Generic beer purchasing habits, July 2021: I mostly buy beer for home consumption on A weekday The weekend       184 298     I mostly buy beer from A Bottle Shop A Brewery A Grocery Store Other   210 186 84 41 I consider myself a beer mule Beer Mule!

During our short stay in Savannah, the highlight of the trip was definitely our first Savannah Bananas baseball game. Now that we are official super fans, we would like to help you with a little guide on what to expect! Get your tickets early! The Bananas sell out every home game- the current streak is 88 straight. As of 7/5/21, the entire season was sold out. But there are still a few ways to get to the game. Search facebook marketplace or the facebook group. Stubhub had nothing available and completely overcharges you so avoid that if at all possible. Get to the game early! The fun starts as soon as you walk up to the gates and get your tickets scanned by bananas! There’s music, games, and dancing that you don’t want to miss! We were lucky and got one of the last parking spaces in the stadium lot. […]

Savannah Bananas Baseball – Attendance Guide


Whisky Flight 1
It’s October and we’re so far behind in our posts!  Here’s a throwback to our time in Savannah… or in this case South Carolina.  As Beerventurers, we can’t start a beerventure in the city (or state in this case) where we fly into – because reasons.  Our very first instinct when flying into Savannah Georgia was to head across the border towards Hilton Head Island. Southern Barrel Brewing Co. Before you make it to Hilton Head Island, there are several breweries dotted along the way so our first stop was Southern Barrel of Bluffton, SC.  The area that the brewery is in has that Florida development feel to it; mixed residential + commercial but without the old town feel of the North East.  But that’s not a huge problem for us because the beer and food at SBBC is authentic as it gets. Because sours are still all the rage, […]

We’re going to wrap up the remaining 17 (yes 17!) Austin breweries by doing another Top 5 post because it’s now October and we’re horrible writers.  So, just to clarify, this is a Top 5 Austin Breweries post, but only of the remaining breweries.  We’re getting less and less consistent, aren’t we?  So in no specific order, here’s the last part of our Texas beerventure. Batch Craft Beer & Kolaches Batch Craft Beer & Kolaches is a family owned bakery, brewery and bottle shop that was only doing can pours out in the biergarten during our time in Austin.  That wasn’t a huge problem for us as their biergarten is massive and dog friendly.  The only drawback was that we had to limit ourselves to just two cans of beer out of the wonderful array of choices. It was a tough decision, but we settled on the Prickle and Wa […]
