Augusta Brewery Expands Distribution

Savannah River Brewing, “Augusta’s Hometown Brewery,” is now available throughout Northeast Georgia.

About two hours southeast of Athens is the city of Augusta, Georgia. It is mostly known as the home of famous singers like James Brown, Josh Kelley, and two-thirds of Lady Antebellum, and as host to the prestigious Masters Golf Tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club. However, Augusta has recently joined Georgia’s craft beer scene and in February 2017 became known as the home of  Savannah River Brewing Company.

Savannah River Brewing is situated in a former distribution warehouse off Fifth Street downtown. In addition to a brew house and packaging facility, the space includes a large tap room and patio open Thursday through Saturday with lots of seating, games, TVs, and of course beer. In the fall of 2017, Savannah River Brewing expanded distribution and made its core brands and seasonals available to the craft beer lovers of Northeast Georgia.
