Southern Suds: Come for the Beer, Stay for the History
Augusta Museum of History
The Augusta Museum of History is brewing up a third year of Southern Suds: Come for the Beer, Stay for the History. This year we will be featuring our two hometown breweries, River Watch Brewery and Savannah River Brewing Company. While enjoying food and drinks, music will be provided by DJ Matto, a favorite at Sky City.
Learn about beer brewing in Augusta, including a Q & A session with River Watch Brewery and Savannah River Brewing Company. Participate in our Pub Trivia Raffle or compete in a series of games throughout the evening to win various prizes. End the night with a selfie by our popular photo booth with fun props!
Back by popular demand is our limited-edition historic beer, Per Simma Down, brewed by River Watch Brewery! This persimmon and wheat beer is based on a historic recipe from an 1870s cookbook from the Museum's collection. Get this special beer on tap and in bottles for one night only during this event while supplies last.
NEW THIS YEAR: Last Call BYOG - Bring your own growler. At the end of the event you'll be able to fill up your own growler to take home. Prices may vary.
