Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

January 10, 2018 - National running and beer event series, the Craft Brew Races, returns to Savannah for the third year in a row on March 10. The Craft Brew Races is a timed, but relaxed 5K run or walk on Grand Prize of America Avenue, followed by a 3-hour beer festival featuring local and regional craft breweries and vendors. A portion of every ticket sold for the event is donated to the Georgia Craft Brewer’s Guild in support of their efforts to to promote the craft beer industry in the state.

The 3.1-mile run/walk will start at 2 p.m., and follow an out-and-back course. Runners will receive a race bib and timing chip, and prizes will be awarded to the three fastest men and women, as well as the largest team, largest brewery team, and the fastest team. All race finishers will receive a finisher’s medal and water at the finish line before heading to the waterfront festival to enjoy 3-hours of included beer sampling, as well as live music and food vendors. At the end of the festival, all attendees receive a custom-designed pint glass as a souvenir of the day.  

Local breweries featured in this year’s festival include Two Tides Brewing Company, Pontoon Brewing Company, SweetWater Brewing Company, Service Brewing Co.,  and Southern Sky Brewing Company. In total, more than 30 breweries will be in attendance, with a full list online at 

For those not interested in the run/walk, festival-only tickets are also available and include all beer samples for the 3-hour festival as well as the take-home pint glass. Designated driver tickets are also available; DD’s will receive complimentary snacks and soft drinks, and their souvenir glass. 

Tickets are on sale now at A military discount is available.
