Fans of Southbound Brewing Co. will not want to miss their sixth anniversary party on May 18.

They will open at noon when festivities officially kick off at 2 p.m. and lasting all day.

Natalie Alexander, Southbound's marketing and event coordinator, described the event as a music festival for the entire family.

“Music is a big influence on Southbound, so we have three great bands that day,” she said.

The Pluff Mudd String Band will kick off their set at 2 p.m. Then the Grateful Dead vibe will start to pick up at 6 p.m. with Cats Under the Stars featuring some of the band members from the Charlie Fog Band followed by The Grass is Dead out of Florida.

 

Alexander says Fetes de Fleurs of Savannah will be on site making flower crowns for the kids or adults if they choose. Kids can also have fun in the bounce house.

There will be about 15 vendors on site selling artwork, jewelry and other artisan goods. Prowl food truck will be there from 1 to 4 p.m. and Root Note Food truck from Charleston will be there in the evening. If you like noshing, C+C Nut Factory will have boiled peanuts and Ono Snow will be serving up shaved ice.

Of course, you can’t have a Southbound party without craft brews. Alexander says they will have a full menu of their brews along with house-made nonalcoholic sodas.

“We’ll tap a few barrels of some of our exclusive barrel-age brews and we’ll have a variety of exclusive beers that will only be available at the party,” she said.

Alexander added that with the big changes that have occurred with Georgia laws in the past few years, Southbound has been able to grow a lot since they first opened their doors six years ago.

“Since then, we can put on more creative and bigger events like this all-day festival,” she said. “We’re staying busy coming out with new and exciting beers and events. And we’re really excited to share this with everyone.”
