Craft Beer Shop
Recently we went on a road trip to meet up with family in Savannah Georgia so I decided to maximize the trip by making it a craft beer trip in hopes of scoring beers currently not distributed anywhere in Florida. After doing some research on Google to see what craft beer shops were in Savannah Georgia only one appeared to really stand out, Hops & Barley, Craft Beer Shop of Savannah Georgia run by David Barker at 412 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. After a long drive I exited the highway to discover Hops & Barley was right off the highway only a few blocks from the busy downtown hot spots. Parking is a little limited but not bad, just bring a few quarters for the meter right in front of Hops & Barley only feet away from the store front.
After getting inside my first impression was just how clean and nicely laid out the entire store looked while David welcomed me into his store. The store looks very open and spacious but don’t let that fool you as the store was well stocked with tons of great Georgia Breweries being represented throughout the entire front half of the store and in other areas of the store. The store is well stocked with several coolers of nicely chilled beers of every style you could think of. One of the key features of Hops & Barley is a large wine rack in the back of the store filled with some amazing bombers from around the country including a nice showing of Georgia Breweries of course.
As you can see from the photos I made out well with lots of help from the owner, David who was very customer service friendly and extremely knowledgable on all the beers available in his shop with information going well beyond the beers them self with great insight into what made each Georgia Brewer special. (I did grab two Ballast Point brews that I hadn’t been able to grab in Florida). After seeing how beautiful downtown Savannah was we’ll be coming back in the near future to spend an entire day or two and I can guarantee Hops & Barley will be a must for one of the places we’ll be visiting. If your going to Savannah or live there and haven’t been to Hops & Barley here is a link to the best assortment of craft beers in Savannah Georgia with friendly, knowledgeable customer service.
