Quite impressible beer store, heck they had better selection of North Carolina beer than even Greens, in Atlanta. anyway nice store, nice folks, damn nice Belgium import selection, hate to review it and tell folks almost, hehe j/k Very helpful and friendly folks there. Beer is in back as others have said, 1 cold row and about 2.5 to 3 not cold. Lots of stuff that would never get into Jacksonville. I found Rochefort 8 and 10, and lots of Scottish imports, German smoked beer that's usually impossible to get down her etc etc. highly recommended store if near Savannah.

Habersham off Abercorn is the closet place I pick up Founders, Lost Abbey and Port Brewing stuff from my south Florida home base. I have been there several times and no one has approached me for help or to answer questions, but that is okay since I know what I am there for. Selection seems to be good compared to some of the better stores back home, with Founders, Port Brewing, Lost Abbey, Sweetwater, Lakefront, Unita, Cigar City, and a lot of other stuff I see in south Florida (sorry I can't name more as my thoughts are fixed on the beer I cannot get). I stop in when passing by or in town and they have yet to disappoint.

One of the only 2 options for purchasing craft beer in Savannah (the other being the original Habersham location, of course), Habersham Beverage Warehouse (Abercorn) offers everything you need from the Georgia beer scene, including Terrapin, SweetWater, and Wild Heaven, and plenty of other "regional"offerings (Highland, Duck-Rabbit, Thomas Creek, Cigar City, ect.), along Bell's, Founders, Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada, Flying Dog, Lost Abbey, Victory, and others. Import selection is decent, with standards like Duvel, Chimay, Westmalle, and the like available. The options at this store differ slightly from the other location (which has a smaller selection overall), so I usually plan time to hit up both to get the full picture. However, if you only have time for one definitely go here. Prices are always great. Service is decent considering I go there basically once a week, but the staff is only as friendly and accommodating as they need to be, nothing more. Still, if you're heading to Savannah this is your only option, so stop on by!

This is a standard Wine Warehouse type store in a strip center. Two aisles of beer in the back and a row of coolers. I was primarily interested in stuff I couldn't get in Florida and I immediately spotted a nice selection of Port/Lost Abbey. They seemed to have quite a lot of other, regional stuff and while I ignored the imports, there were plenty of them as well. Service isn't something I am concerned with at package stores, but at one point someone wandered into the beer aisle and asked if anyone needed help, so I'll count that as a good effort. I was very pleased with my experience here and I'd definitely be coming back.

In a heavy shopping district near the military base. Three solid aisles and a row of coolers at the back of the store. 80% of the store was wine, they had a TON of wine in this place, it is not small. Still the staff seemed interested enough in craft beer. Great varied selection, the star being Lost Abbey/Pizza Port for those of us in the other SE states. As others have said, it would help if they offered singles of everything. Domestic selection is very good. You'll find larger import selections in South Carolina, unless Atlanta just gets everything.
Reminded me alot of the Binny's in the Chicago area. Certainly the best store in the city, doesn't look like there are many other choices anyway.
I think I hit the 3 high points of the town, this, Moon River Brewing and The Distillery.

Yeah, great place. Beer in the back, mostly displayed on two very long shelves, both sides, with some Belgians on another shelf and lots more in the cooler at the very back. Amazing what a difference a few states makes, as I found stuff here I cannot find in NC or VA, stuff from Saint Somewhere, The Lost Abbey, Atlanta Brewing Co. and Port Brewing in particular -- and more. Everything seemed pretty well up to date (ie. not a whole lot of dusty bottles), prices are clearly displayed, everything very much in order.
Service is excellent, right down to the guys at the counter opinionating (in a friendly way) on some of the stuff I bought as they were ringing it up.
Very much a liquor store type of atmosphere (ie. not much atmosphere) but if you came for killer beer, whether it's American, English, German, Belgian or otherwise, you can't possibly walk out disappointed.
They have another location, on Habersham, which is basically just as good and even had a few different selections from this one on Abercorn. I visited on both on the same day, four days ago, so my recollection of the particular differences isn't clear, but rest assured either location will satisfy any local or traveler.

I think the Habersham Warehouse on Abercorn is easily the best place for beer in Savannah. Perhaps it's because I'm young and still constantly researching the world or beer, but I always find something new that I'm up for trying when I stop by. Also, it's the only place I know of that stocks a bunch of my favorite beers, and at the best prices also. All the 750mL bottles of Unibroue products are about $7, where as at other stores I've seen them as high as $10. Bleh!
Whenever I've been in, I always have at least one person asking if I need help. The one time I did ask about a product listed on their website, I was told that the site was probably well out of date, which is unfortunate, but I really doubt that is the fault of some random store employee.
Overall, I love the store. Good prices, good selection, good service. When it comes to buying beer in Savannah, it doesn't get much better than the Warehouse.

Stopped in hoping to snag a few seasonals I hadn't found to no avail. Workers there were eager to help and obviously knew a bit about beer. All the usual suspects were there, but the workers lamented that sometimes they weren't able to get some beers that Atlanta does as well as those people looking for South Carolina beers (which of course the sale of in Georgia would be illegal). A good first stop for anyone in the Southeast, and would probably go back again, especially in a different season.

Quite a way from downtown, but well worth the trip if you are visiting.
As others have said, three rows of beer all the way in the back of the store. Coolers along the back wall. Some beer located to the left of the shelves as you walk up the middle aisle of the store.
Good selection of both imports and micros. Great selection for the area and for GA in general. Highlights were Founders Nemises and beers from Napa Smith. Lots of Founders, Stone, Avery, Highlands, Sweetwater, Victory. Prices were cheaper than here in NC. GA is a pretty cheap beer state for the south. Liquor prices are pretty good here, at least compared to NC.
Service was attentive, without being overpowering. They were eager to sell beer and knowledgeable about their products.
Close to the mall, if the family is along.

Visited the Abercorn store during a vacation to Savannah a few weeks ago.
First off, the store was Extremely out of the way of our hotel in the Historic District and pretty much all of Savannah's major attractions. My wife and I foolishly thought we would walk to it, since our hotel was on the corner of Bay St. and Abercorn. Thankfully, we looked up directions and found it was 11 miles from the hotel. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, since it's well out of the way of tourist traffic, but you have to want to go or you'll never see it.
Habersham is a well-sized liquor store with a pretty impressive selection of wine, spirits, and beer. I had fun strolling the bourbon and scotch selections before wandering back to the beer section.
Habersham's beer section is comprised of three isles and a wall of coolers. One isle is dedicated to Belgian beers, and they have a great selection. Many of the trappist ales are represented, as well as other ales, lambics, and saisons.
The next isle houses many British beers, as well as a few other European and Canadian selections. This was my first time to see many of these beers, but they also had many familiar offerings. The last isle is filled with domestic microbrews, either in six-packs, four-packs, bombers, or 750s. I saw examples from Allagash, Stone, Rogue, Highland, Terrapin, Sweetwater, The Bruery, Avery, Great Divide, Bell's, DFH, and many many others. The coolers were dedicated mostly to cases of BMC products, but they did have micro cases and sixers as well.
We were visited several times by the beer manager. He was very friendly and offered advice on their new arrivals and other selections.
The only point I have against Habersham is that they don't sell singles or split six packs. The beer manager told me that places that offer singles have to sell them at very high premiums and they don't think consumers should have to pay extra for a single bottle. They do have a small section of singles in their cooler, and I imagine these are leftovers from broken sixers. I don't really buy this, because I've been to several stores in other states that offer singles at the unit price of a six pack. I couldn't imagine paying $18 for a six-pack of Oaked Arrogant Bastard here when I can get a single for less than $3 elsewhere.
All in all, Habersham Beverage Warehouse on Abercorn has a great selection of high-quality and hard-to-find beers, paired with knowledgeable and friendly staff. However, some of the prices were slightly higher than I'm used to seeing, and they still had several out-of-date seasonals on the shelves. Because they don't offer singles, I was only able to buy 5 bombers/750s since I was afraid to invest in a strange six-pack.
