Craft Beer Explosion

Savannah Georgia's Craft Beer and Brewery Explosion. New Breweries!

Craft beer is truly on the rise! The Brewer’s Association recently released new figures showing the first 6 months of 2013 American craft beers sales in volume and dollars are up 13% and 15%, respectively.  By March of this year the brewery count hit an all time high since the 1880’s. There are now over 2300 craft breweries in the nation! The demand for craft beer has never been higher and more and more breweries are popping up everywhere. Georgia is no exception to this.  The Georgia Craft Brewer’s Guild is an organization hosting 22 brewpubs, contract breweries, and production breweries.

Our first "Beer Buzz" column for Savannah Morning News!

When Do approached us about writing this new monthly column, we were more than thrilled for the opportunity to share our knowledge and love of craft beer with all of you. We’ve been in the beer industry for more than six years, each working in breweries in Georgia, South Carolina and now finally completing the dream of opening Southbound Brewing Co. here in Savannah. It’s been a long trip, but we’re almost ready to give y’all your newest hometown microbrewery.
