After being closed for more than a month while the owners remodeled and made upgrades to the kitchen, Brewer's Republic is back, with a new look, tap list, menu and expanded hours, from 11 a.m. to midnight. 

The popular downtown craft beer bar and restaurant closed suddenly Dec. 20 due to a dispute over uncorrected fire code violations between the landlord at 112 N. Nevada and bar owner Jeff Haigh, who sublet the business from former owners Jerry Morris and Tom Halfast.

Morris and Halfast left Brewer's to start Cerberus Brewing Co. on the Springs' west side in 2016; they returned in late 2017 to revive it. 

The renewed space, now up to fire code, is a "Cerberus taproom," with a third of the taps devoted to selections from the west side brewery and the rest to "the best we can find; what Brewer's is known for," Morris said.

The menu, created by Cerberus executive chef Mark LeFebvre and prepared by sous chef Michael Sims, will be a pared down, sub and pizza-focused version of the fare offered at the west side restaurant and brewery.

"Given the frightening amount of craft beer places that are opening up, anybody in their right mind should be concerned about the competition. I'm really not," Morris said. "(Cerberus co-owner and head brewer) Josh Adamski and (assistant brewer) Taylor Donner will be advising and helping pick out the beers. Between what we'll have on tap and the fact that Mark will be in charge of the kitchen, you've got a winning combination."

Adamski's mom and Cerberus co-owner, Cindy Geiser,  is also a partner in the reopening.
