Soak Up Some Suds On A Savannah Brewery Tour!

August 15th, 2016 by Corey Edwards

In the past 20 years, craft brewing has taken America by storm. Savannah is no exception and taking a Savannah brewery tour is a great way to get in on this fun and delicious trend!

Since the mid 90’s, the number of breweries in the U.S. has quadrupled, with well over 4,000 breweries in operation. Most of that activity is craft breweries (also known as microbreweries). Consequently, craft brewery tourism is up – and why not?

Savannah has its own craft beer community and, therefore, some craft breweries to visit! A Savannah brewery tour is a great way to introduce yourself to a new beer or a new region. Craft Brewers tend to enjoy showing folks around their works and offering tasters. There’s nothing quite like sharing your labor of love with others!

The best news is that not one of these craft breweries is more than ten minutes from our Savannah B&B. This means you can enjoy them without going too far out of your way! Our convenient location in the downtown historic district makes this true for most of Savannah’s attractions.

Therefore, we’ve put together a list of Savannah craft breweries that you can visit and enjoy samples at. Cheers!

Savannah’s Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist

August 16th, 2014 by Corey Edwards

Savannah's Cathedral of Saint John the BaptistThe grand architectural beauty and rich history of Savannah’s Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist is affecting beyond words and worth visiting – no matter your personal beliefs.

Construction began on Savannah’s Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in 1873 and was completed in 1896 – making it oldest Roman Catholic church in Georgia. You might well wonder at why it took so long for such a structure to be built in Georgia, given that the state was established in 1732 and one of the original 13 colonies of the US.

What this set of facts overlooks, however, is the general mistrust for Catholicism that existed in the early days of the US. (more…)
