Enjoy Savannah’s walkable city for our Friday night reception. Service Brewing is a short walk from the conference hotel. Thank you to our Friday Night Reception sponsor Russell Landscape Group.
Service Brewing was seeded by passion, literally: It all began on Valentine’s Day, when Kevin Ryan received a gift from his lady love, Meredith Sutton. An artist constantly seeking to imbue life with inspiration, Meredith had asked Kevin what interests he had outside of cycling, and finely-crafted beer topped the list. Instead of his favorite six-pack, however, she brought him home brewing supplies. After an obsessive practice period, Kevin’s tasty brews found their way into the glasses of friends and family.
The West Point graduate and former Army commander had also been seeking something more from his career, and in 2014 the couple launched Service Brewing with the help of almost two dozen investors–most of them Army, Navy and Marine Corps veterans. Kevin leads the company, continuing to develop recipes and research the craft. Meredith, a SCAD graduate, designed the stunning Savannah tasting room based off of the stories Kevin told about his military experience and has creatively built the brand to pay homage to American military history.
With the help of an eager and thirsty community, Service Brewing has helped raise tens of thousands of dollars for local, regional and national organizations that assist our veterans and first responders.
Partners in life and in business, Kevin and Meredith remain passionate about brewing great beer and honoring those who serve.
