Watson’s Seafood hosts a stocked marketplace of fresh, seasonal fish and crustaceans for customers to purchase raw and cook at home or for fry-cooks to prepare in-house. Taste the Caribbean seas with a pound of fresh conch meats ($10.99) or exercise jaw muscles by gnawing on the shell of a medium male crab ($16). Fish fryers prepare succulent shrimp in either a mild or tongue-scorching variety ($8.99 per pound) and enlist tender crabmeat to jump into a seasoned low-country boil. Although Watson’s does not have seating on-site, customers may purchase fresh made meals, such as a duo of fried tilapia pieces and french fries ($3.99), to eat in the comfort of their own home or neighbor’s bathtub.
Try as they might, home brewers cannot transform barley and hops into bubbly craft brews with the flick of a switch or a hearty whistle. For tools, equipment, and advice, brewers congregate at the Savannah Home Brew Shop, where they can sniff and sample specialty grains, yeast, and malts from Crosby & Baker. Students stock up on shiny new brewing equipment from Foxx while scouring available brewing books and magazines for the up-to-date trends and tips. The staff at Savannah Home Brew Shop can guide novices through their first fermented steps with home-brewing kits, as well as starter kits and supplies for wine makers. Seasoned brewers load up on brand-name liquid or dry yeasts, and hoist bulk bags of dry grain on their shoulders as they try to outrun the sprightly Saint Paulie girl that just stole their stein.
