ol' Republic Brewery

ol' Republic Brewery is a craft brewery located in historic Nevada City, in the Sierra Nevada foothills.  Newly established in February of 2012, and locally owned by brewers Jim Harte and Simon Olney, ol' Republic offers a variety of old-world beer styles.  

ol' Republic is a commercial taproom, and visitors are encouraged to bring their own food, or choose from a variety of take-out menus provided by the brewery from local restaurants.  The whole family is welcome at the brewery, so feel free to bring the kids. Dogs on leashes love the beer garden on the front patio!

Visitors can enjoy a variety of live music from local musicians every Saturday from 7 pm-10 pm, and make sure to stop by on Friday evenings for catered tacos at 5 pm.  

Located in the heart of California's historic Gold Country, ol' Republic is an ideal stopping point while exploring the Sierra Nevada foothills.
