Surly, pretentious servers, don't really want to help you find a beer or work with you. Seems like they are more interested in being cool. Hard to read the tap list. Had hoped for more. (185 characters)

Enjoyed my visit here, all beers were in great shape.

Bar tender loved talking beer, made suggestions, seemed to really care about what beer I drank and was helpful to the members of our party who weren't into craft beer ( there is an affiliated basement bar called subway to handle that)

Was impressed with the staff's willingness to give samplers & rotate beers in. 2 kegs blew, both were changed out with something with an update to the board ASAP.

Pricing seemed good/great

Nice gamut of mostly American craft offerings. Tried multiple half pints and all were in great shape.

I did like the vibe in the basement better, but I enjoyed my time on the surface as well. Would happily go back any day. (714 characters)

Coming from ATL in town for 2 days. Awesome selection of exclusive craft brews. Tried "Brotha's Darkness" black IPA by Phantom Canyon and Tommy Knocker "Legend" a strong ale on tap. Both very awesome! Looks like they get really good Buisiness. Maybe time to expand. Barely sitting room. Especially it being only a Thursday night. Overall real cool spot. Prompt service. Cool vibe (379 characters)

Brewer's Republic is far and away my favorite beer bar in Colorado Springs. What started off as a <10 tap, CO only beer selection has evolved into 20 taps of limited release, hard to find, or just overall quality beers from all over the country - but still with a huge CO presence. They also now serve some premium spirits and wines and as always their kitchen puts most bars to shame. (388 characters)

All Colorado beer bar. Great idea considering all the amazing beers in this state.

Selection: 12 beers on tap and about as broad of a selection as you can have with that many taps. Last time I was there they had Kick and Clutch from New Belgium, Colorado Glider Cider, Gubna, Ska Pinstripe, Mercenary, Fort Collins Brewery barley wine, and a few others. All of their kegs are 1/6 barrel so you stand a chance to have different beers on tap then when you came in. They understand they have a limited amount of taps so they do a very good job of getting rare beer that other Colorado Spring places won't even get a chance to put on tap.

Atmosphere: Small cozy bar atmosphere. They have live music nights, trivia nights, and a bike ride club. They have an outdoor patio in front and a covered patio upstairs. Industrial decor done right.

Price: This is where the kill the competition. They are priced well and you get a full pint. A full pint of Le Terroir cost $6.00, it was on tap somewhere else for considerably more and in a small tulip. Beer dinners are only $30 and they have free schwag to give away plus custom made beers for them from places like Odell and Oskar Blues.

Staff: The owners are awesome and way friendly. They have put requested beers on tap multiple times! Fun bar staff as well.

Food: The food comes from a bar next door through an attached kitchen. It's ok bar food but definitely not the focus. You come for the beer but end up staying so long you have to eat something and the place next door helps out.
Overall impressive! (1,554 characters)
