Moon River Halloween Party: Oct 27
If you aren’t into a full blown night of Pub Crawling but still want to have a little Halloween Fun, head over to Moon River!
Moon River Brewing Company is located in one of Savannah’s most notoriously haunted buildings. Customers and staff have reported an unsettling amount of paranormal activity going on within. This place is so haunted, that it drew the attention of Zak Bagans, who brought his team and filmed an episode of the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures here in 2009!
Built in 1821, the building housed Savannah’s first hotel, was the site of Savannah’s cotton exchange and has a very dark and violent history. It closed it’s doors in 1864 just before General Sherman made it to Savannah on his march to the sea during the Civil War. The building was out of commission for the better part of the century, being used as coal and lumber storage but sat mostly empty until Moon River Brewing Company opened in 1999.
Now, Moon River Brewing Company is a favorite of Savannah’s natives and tourists. Pouring some of the best pints Savannah has to offer and attracting ghost and paranormal activity enthusiasts from all over the country, it only makes sense that they throw a pretty great Halloween Party.
Head over to Moon River Brewing Company on Saturday, October 27th around 9pm for their annual Halloween party for drinks, music, a costume contest at 11pm, and maybe even an encounter with the other side!
Address: Moon River Brewing Company, 21 W Bay St, Savannah, GA 31401
