Savannah, Georgia – I had such a great time at this place – I lost my notes. This never happens to me more than once a visit.
Staying across the river from Moon River at some luxury hotel that served Helium Light – Lighter than light and ever Upward Fart Lite - I jumped every spare moment onto the cross river ferry and ended up at Moon River Brewing. It looked old and funky from the outside. It is also like that on the inside. I just love the place – its like me. Old, worn and worth every spare moment you can. Don’t rush ladies – Harriet (my current wife) might not understand.
We all know that capitalism leads to excellence? OK – not in health care but in other spheres, must be. We all know this or it’s been reported so many times – we belief it.
The only show on the road in Savanna is Moon River – so why should the beers in this wood paneled comfortable bar and brewery keep on improving? Not competition for sure. They don’t have any within many, many miles or who knows – states? But they do have John Pinkerton and Chris Lady. Both fanatic – fanatics who are competing with themselves. Forgetting the light Coors or Bud look alike’s – which I never try anyway, each time I visit – just a tad more hop in the Swamp River IPA, a little more chocolate malt overtone in the porter or stout. What is the difference between Porter and Stout?
Piss all but brewers are emotional so don’t challenge. It’s a Porter because he or she says so. There being no competition for excellence – I don’t need to say much about Moon River Brewing other than if you don’t travel out of your way to visit this proof that individuals make great beers – not to compete – but because they can, it will be your loss.
