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.

Great place just off of the light rail. I was visiting with a friend who took me here. Large tap list with local beers. Excellent service with knowledgeable bartenders. Beautiful bar and ample seating. Food is solid. Vibe reminds me of a classic laid back Midwest craft beer bars. Maybe a lot of nostalgia kicking in for the Midwest but really loved this bar.

This is a place I could gush over for hours. Inside does not have a single television but looks like it has been preserved from some much older time. Inside is absolutely beautiful. Outside is a good sized patio. Personally, their happy hour is the best for a beer bar in the Twin Cities between their food and beer reduced prices and frequency. Their service is always solid and their prices are on point. Their food is out of this world and made from scratch, even their ketchup. They offer some like 75 beers on tap but they do not seem to change very often. Overall, the selection is still very good, it only becomes a problem when you go a few times a week for a long period of time.

Nice place, great tap list, gets crowded. Easy on and off the green line. The food menu is upscale pub options. Great burger and good wings.

Staff is attentive, even when it gets crowded for happy hour and weekend nights. Lots of great local and national craft options. Always have something from the tap on special. Prices are good overall.

A place you can always count on for a great tap list, above average food-not your typical bar food, and knowledgeable bartenders. Very nice indoor seating with outdoor seating outfront as well. Definitely a go to place. Parking isn't ideal.

Long, classic bar with an English/Euro feel to it. Comfortable place I hung out for a while in.

Friendly, chatty server behind the bar. Just my type - obvious that he knew beer, but not real snobby about it and conversed well about sports and the eclectic music selection from his ipod.

Broad selection of local/national craft beers that are served in good shape and at reasonable prices. Will definitely stop in again next time I'm in town.
