Decided to check this place out after a few beers over at Town Hall. Lots of outdoor patio seating. Moved inside after the ladies in our group got a little chilly. I think the decor inside is pretty cool. I will say that it was extremely dark inside however. Turn up the lighting a touch so I can see who I'm talking to please. I would say around 20 taps on hand with some very solid offerings. I think the list could use a touch more variety. Only one stout/porter on the whole list. Had an Avery Maharaja and a LaTrappe Quad which was served in its own branded chalice. Prices were fair. I don't know that they were the lowest in town, but they were not overpriced at all. Had some really good appetizers. Fries were very solid. Our waitress was attentive and provided us with good service. I wouldn't go out of my way to go here again for the fact that I would have rather stayed at Town Hall all night, but this place does make for a nice change of pace with their atmosphere and beer list compared to Town Hall. I would like to check out their happy hour however, as I hear it's really inexpensive.

EDIT:

Stopped in on Nov. 2012 and everyone at our table took advantage of the any three beers flight in 8 oz. pours for $10. That included Founders Backwoods Bastard and Breakfast stout, La Trappe Quad, Dragon's Milk, etc. Truly an awesome deal! I think they had at least one beer from every MN brewery represented also which was cool. Easy to drink local.

Republic is an excellent recent addition to the Twin Cities beer scene. It has a classic beer bar atmosphere with a nice long bar, intricate stained glass work, and large dead animals hanging on the walls. It also has one of the best patios around. The service at the bar is some of the most knowledgeable beer wise I've come across anywhere. They not only know the beers they serve well, but they know craft beer as a whole well. They also know beer and food pairings. More importantly they are willing to share their knowledge in a friendly, respectful manner. The service on the patio is some of the slowest I've encountered anywhere. It has taken up to twenty minutes for me to get a single beer on the patio. Last time I was there my group left after waiting fifteen minutes without any of the three servers acknowledging us. The food is top notch. The local sausages are amazing. The burgers are good too, and a great bargain at $5 during happy hours. As for the beer, they carry a wide variety of styles from mostly local breweries. I would say they have one of the best selections of local breweries in the Twin Cities. The only complaint I have about their beer selection is that it doesn't change very often. This is something that usually causes me to visit places less frequently, but the selection at Republic is so well chosen that I still go their often during none patio season. If I'm in the area and the weather is nice, however, I'll most certainly be across the street on Town Hall's patio.

Housed in the former shell of Sgt. Prestons at seven corners in Minneapolis. They kept a lot of the old taxidermy from the old establishment, but removed the rest of the detritus of the former dive/party bar. 32 craft beer taps with the best prices you will find in the Twin Cities or probably anywhere. We wandered in during happy hour and were dumbfounded by finding $3 pints of Stone Arrogant Bastard offered, as well as $3 pints of the heavyweights of local, regional, and national craft breweries. Imports weren't included in this deal, but there are so many interesting tap choices that there is something for every taste. The $5 happy hour burgers looked good in that locally-sourced, free-range trend sort of way.
When happy hour ends, the prices do not go up that much and are easily the best you will find anywhere in town. $4-$6 for pretty much all taps. Service was fast and very friendly, this is definitely worth a stop back. I now have another reason to go to seven corners, besides my favorite brewpub across the street.

This one is the original. They have a really cool beer list, and a great food menu. There is a cheap and delicious happy hour menu. We had walleye balls, which were great. The decor and woodwork is outstanding. Any person would be proud of owning/operating a space like that.

I have always enjoyed the place. They have a large amount of taps and the I have always found the seasonal rotation to be high quality. They seem to get a lot of limited release kegs.

Great food deals during happy hour.

With this right across the street from Townhall, makes it one of the best beer locales in Minneapolis.
