What is the SCBF?

The Annual Savannah Craft Brew Fest has turned into a signature event that takes place in the historic Savannah, GA over Labor Day Weekend. The SCBF will feature many great elements this year including: multiple indoor and outdoor Beer Gardens, an Import Garden, a Cider Garden, a Mixology Garden featuring beer cocktails, the Sam Adams Brew University featuring a variety of educational sessions, a Cornhole Tournament, Mead Garden and a Silent Disco!

The festival is located at One International Drive, Savannah, Georgia 31402.

Known as one of America’s most walkable cities, attendees who plan to travel by vehicle to the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center have the convenience of ample onsite paid parking within close  proximity to the facility’s main entrances.

And just a two minute complimentary ride from the Savannah Belles Ferry landing is a convenient connection to Savannah’s famed River Street and Historic District and only a 20 minute drive from the
Savannah International Airport via Interstate highways I-95 and l-16.
