One of the best parts of traveling is trying new things. And the best of these things is often trying new and local beers and spirits (for those of us 21 and older). When you visit be sure to check out our growing brew scene, Savannah’s first distillery since the 1920s, and Savannah’s first mead bar inspired by Savannah’s bees. Get to know them below before you come. Then when you’re ready, book your stay with us!

After you get to know our other Spirits, you may also want to get to know Savannah’s Open Container Policy.
