Sat at the bar for a quick brew. They had several of their own brews but were out of a couple as well. Luckily, they also had a few guest beers because that was the better choice.
Didn't have any pub grub but from what I could see, it seemed typical for bar eats.
The bartender was very friendly and attentive. She allowed me several tastes before I settled on my choice. The visit was okay but was way over-shadowed the next day by the Distillery bar experience I enjoyed.
There are lots of place to try in Sav. Give it a try but move on quickly.

Went here while in Savannah for 6 pm toasts. The experience was awesome. The brewer was willing to talk to all and gave his toast (funniest part being the news that the hole where the beer garden is going now has posts!). Beer quality is very good and service is wonderful. They have a full line of beers ready for your enjoyment. The food is your typical fair but is still good. Overall, this has to be your go to spot in Savannah to get your first beer and your to-go beer.

I go to Moon River mostly because I love their Rosemary IPA. The other beers I have tried are good, nothing memorable, and their service and food is fair (for the price). The staff does not seem too knowledgeable or engaging when it comes to the beers, and even on slow days the service is lacking. A cool place to have a drink, especially at night. Have not done the haunted pub crawl, but this would certainly be a good place to do it in. For food, there are certainly better places in Savannah, but Moon River Brewing should be on your radar for some interesting beers and the haunted atmosphere. That is what you are in Savannah for, is it not?

Moon River Brewing Company brews their own beer on site, and while the beer selection is rather large, the food left a little something to be desired.
Located in Savannah, with plenty of competition, Moon River does not do enough to differentiate itself. The atmosphere is rather bland, not offering anything to exciting. It certainly felt like a tourist trap to me.
I enjoyed their beers, but in a city like Savannah, where you can get your beer to go, I recommend grabbing a plastic cup, and checking out the rest of the city.

My wife and I visited this place while we staying on Hilton Head island and took a day trip into Savannah. This was definitely a good find when compared to the Hilton Head's Brewery.
I tried their beer flight which was made up of 7 4oz glasses and did not cover their whole selection, american ales, wheat, IPA's, stouts, you name it they probably have it. The food was excellent and so was the service. The brewery is in a convenient location off a main street in downtown Savannah. The brewery also offers to-go glasses for those on the run!

What a great find! We walked to Moon River after enjoying a stroll through Savannah's River Walk. The town was busy with SCAD graduation but Moon River was rather empty on a Friday night, which worked fine for us.
We sat by the brewing equipment and even saw the brewer playing, letting his daughter carry lab samples, so cute. Very relaxed atmosphere, great for a pint or five.
Eight house beers on tap, with a bit of everything: Belly-washer golden ale, Wild Wacky wit, Apparition ale, Dixie Kristal trippel, Slo-vannah APA, Swamp Fox IPA, Captain's Porter Stout... and the absolute star: Dixie Merveille!!! This is a blend of fresh Dixie Kristal trippel with vintage Kristal from September '08 aged in Cabernet barrels ever since. Outstanding.
We didn't have any food at Moon River so can't comment on that, but service was nice and friendly and the experience a very positive one. Pints are five dollars and the Dixie Merveille was $10, which is a lil' much but absolutely worth the splurge. I even thanked the brewer for such a masterpiece.

Nice location in the downtown, nightlife are of historic Savannah. The service was very good, friendly and attentive. I did not try the food. The selection was broad with many beers on two coverIng many genres including rare releases and flights. The beer quality was as good as expected for a microbrewery with a few surprisingly good finds. The ambience of the facility was balanced wIth many age groups noted with a small but quaint bar. Definitely one if the two or so must try places in the savannah area for beer lovers. Everything on the beer menu was appropriately priced.

A very cool place right on the river walk in Savannah. You can even do reservations online which helps in prepping.
Food was interesting and not bad. Some was local but not sure about organic or sustainable foods.
Beers are very well done here and is one of the main reasons to not only visit Moon River Brewing, but Savannah. Later in the evenings Ghost Tours begin at this location. Their seasonals are always interesting and well done and provide a glimpse of the culture of Savannah and the history. The regular ipa, pa, stouts, etc, are always well done. Definitely worth checking out.

The DW and I visited moon river last Tuesday night just prior to the a hanuted pub crawl. The decor in Moon River is average. Trendy little dining area with hardwood floors and tables and neo-trend lights. The square bar area is small with a limited number of taps. They have a few guest beers but they are short on selection if you're not into their house craft beers. The most unique beer of the night was their Rosemary IPA (which I could detect nary a hint of Rosemary in it).
The coolest part of the bar is the basement which is only used for overflow and private parties and the unfinished upstairs. It's brick and has a small bar of it's own, and we visited it as part of the ghost tour. The upstairs levels are unfinished and we were allowed to explore the second level a little bit. They do store their brewing supplies (pallets of malted barley, etc) and corny kegs on this level, but for the most part, it's unfurnished.
Our table in the dining room abutted the brew area and I was actually a little grossed out by the lack of cleanliness around the mash tuns and the conicals. Spotless inside (as it should be) but there was no lack of wort spillage and mulm buildup on the outside of the vessils. As a brewer myself, I know the most important aspect of any brewing is cleanliness, and if I were their head brewer, i'd scrub the place floor to ceiling and then spray everything down in idophor.

Weekend trip to Savannah for their inaugural RockNRoll Marathon. The whole town was crazy busy from all the people in town for the race. Place was slammed but we walked in and immediately got a table for 4. Ordered their Swamp Fox IPA to start. With dinner I got their sample flight with 7 or 8 samples for only $9. All of them were pretty tasty with the highlight being their sweet potato beer. Best of all their nachos are extraordinary. I would def. recommend stopping by if you are in the downtown area and want some better beer than the macro stuff at other bars.
