Savage Craft Ale Works is opening Saturday

Savage Craft Ale Works is opening Saturday.

Savage Craft is at 430 Center Street in West Columbia, just off of State Street in the River District. It’s in the renovated old City Hall and Fire Station building. The structure was built in 1925. The old Brookland Jail will serve as Savage Craft’s kitchen.

Savage Craft’s media team said it will be open from 1 p.m. until 10 p.m. Saturday. A band – Love and Theft – will begin playing on the soundstage at 2 p.m. Entry and seating is first-come-first-served. There is lots of free parking in the area.

The brewery has a rooftop bar that looks east toward the Columbia skyline and a second-floor room that pays homage to the buildings history.

Savage Craft’s website has this: “Savage Craft Ale Works is a veteran-owned beverage company that is committed to providing the highest quality products while providing an unparalleled experience for those that visit our taproom. We apply the same disciplined approach to constantly improving and refining our craft that we learned as members of this great country’s military.”
