Republic Brewing Company's History

Our building is actually the town's historic Fire Hall located right on main street with two roll up bay doors, which in the summer we open to let the warm summer breeze in.

Did you know we are not the first Republic Brewing Company? The original brewery operated 3 miles east of the current location, providing beer to gold miners from the 1890’s until it closed at the onset of Prohibition. Beer was served to local saloons in wooden barrels and bottled at the Republic Bottling Works, a building that currently serves as the San Poil Grange Hall.
