Being located so close to a variety of military bases has had an effect on Savannah and the surrounding area for longer than most of us have been alive. From Fort Hunter to Fort Stewart, Savannah is right smack in the middle of two military bases. Throughout all of southeast Georgia, there is no denying that we support and respect the troops in any way that we can. When you sit down for some brews at Service Brewing Co, you get to experience support coming back to us from the veterans who own and operate the place. Wednesday through Sunday, Service Brewing Co serves only American made beers on Indian St. Keep an eye out for their Banana Beer, people rave over that particular flavor. Disclaimer: the Banana Beer is seasonal so grab a can when you can. When you make the conscious decision to spend with Service Brewing Co, know you’re supporting an organization that takes pride in America and those who have served from soldiers to first responders and everything in between.
