Augusta's First Distillery! Tastings, Tours, & Homegrown Libations & Concoctions!

The last brewery in Augusta, Georgia went down during prohibition and never came back. That’s a mighty long time for the citizens of The Garden City to not have their own brew. Well, the wait is over. River Watch is here.

SRBC came to be thanks to the imagination and culminated efforts of two brothers and their families. We chose our name in honor of the river that separates Georgia and South Carolina, the Westobou, more commonly known today as the Savannah River.

When searching for the perfect location, they went off the communal spirit and welcoming feeling that Augusta effused. From there, the 21,000-square-foot brewery, taproom, and beer garden were erected, becoming a centerpiece for socializing within the town. And SRBC's brewing capacity wasn't without the thought either—with the simultaneous fermenting capacity for 13,000 gallons of beer, patrons of the brewery won't be going thirsty anytime soon.

Taproom Hours: 
Wednesday – 4-9
Thursday – 4-9
Friday – 4-10
Saturday – 1-10
