After going dark for a mere 48 days, Brewer's Republic
has re-opened, beginning February 6th, run by returning owners/Cerberus
co-owners Tom Halfast, Jerry Morris and Joshua Adamski. The model (20 rotating craft taps) is the same, but the menu's all new, designed by Cerberus Brewing Company chef Mark LeFebvre. It's largely Italian, drawing especially from Tuscan dishes. They have, of note, retained popular pizzas. Unfortunately, the patio is still being renovated. Manager Meredith Champion says they hope to have it open by Spring.
We stopped by for lunch on opening day and sampled a meatball sub made with house lamb meatballs, paired with a side salad with house-pickled onions and decadent maple vinaigrette. The food's promising, a credit to LeFebvre's well-known chops. Per custom, we'll wait a few weeks before we review. For now, check out the photos below.
