Brewer's Republic revived

Brewer's Republic was revived Tuesday at 112 N. Nevada Ave. with "A Cerberus Taphouse" tagline. Jerry Morris and Tom Halfast, co-founders of Cerberus Brewing Co. on West Colorado Avenue, had ties to Brewer's, and they stepped in after it closed Dec. 20.

Cerberus opened in 2016 with tremendous success, so the opportunity to have a downtown outlet for their beer held appeal. Joshua Adamski, head brewer at Cerberus, will continue as such. Mark LeFebvre, award-winning executive chef for Cerberus, will oversee the menu development and culinary team at Brewer's Republic.

"Brewers Republic is a pizza place with the Cerberus flair," LeFebvre said. "We're doing a figgy piggy pizza with IPA-braised pork belly, brandied figs, caramelized onions, gorgonzola crumbles and an over-easy fried egg in the middle."

Mike Sims has been hired as sous chef for Brewers Republic. Hours are 11 a.m. to midnight. with food served until 11 p.m. daily. Details: 633-2105, facebook.com/brewersrepublic.

Nice and juicy
