Moon River Brewing Co. is hosting the Grand Opening of its new Beer Garden on Saturday, March 9, 2013, at 21 W. Bay St. in Savannah Georgia.
The 5,400-square-foot Beer Garden will feature a single-story building that will be attached to the current Moon River Brewing building. The new building will house restroom facilities, a bar and a small kitchen.
The remaining area, about 3,600 square feet, will seat more than 200 patrons. Carolina jasmine (with Moon River Brewing yellow blossoms) will be grown on a trellis over most of the seating area, providing cooling shade on hot summer days. Herbs, flowers, shrubs and trees will be planted along the north and west sides of the Beer Garden to enhance the garden feeling.
Well-behaved dogs on leashes are welcome in the Beer Garden.
The Beer Garden will offer either the menu below from its own kitchen or the full menu from the main Moon River Brewing kitchen (usually Sunday through Wednesday), depending on the main kitchen’s ability to provide meals in a timely manner.
- Haricot vert salad with salmon
- Shrimp and rotini salad
- Down South chicken salad
- Pesto hummus with corn tortillas
- Cuban sandwich
- Brewers picnic plate
- Oysters pesto
- Apple-cured bacon and fried egg sandwich
- Grilled bratwurst
Moon River Brewing is open:
- Friday and Saturday: 11 a.m.-midnight
- Sunday through Thursday, 11 a.m.–11 p.m.
Happy hour specials (4-7 p.m. every day): Moon River beers, $4.50 (20-oz. pint) and house wines, $3.50
