Being in the city of Souther charm, we often have little reason to journey to the other city of Southern charm: Savannah.

But all that changes this Labor Day weekend when the "The Hostess City of the South" hosts The Savannah Craft Brew Fest.

There will be a craft beer dinner for $50 on Friday, September 4th ($50, $75 at the door). But the event really gets going on Saturday, September 5th, when more than 35 breweries will bring 120 brews for folks to wet their whistles from 1 to 7 p.m.

Here's details from their Web page:

The Savannah Craft Brew Fest will take place on Saturday, September 5 from 1-7 p.m. and will feature more than 120 different craft brews, live entertainment by Jason Courtenay and The Chuck Courtenay Band, delicious food offerings and souvenir items for sale. Overlooking the Savannah River and beautiful Historic Savannah, this outdoor event will be held on the Esplanade at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center. Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door.

You should hop over to their Web site to learn all the details about when, what, and where.

The Charleston City Paper also has a good orientation.
