Whether you’re a beer connoisseur or new to craft beer, ol’ Republic Brewery has a brew for everyone.

The brewery

ol’ Republic Brewery opened its doors in February 2012 in the historic mining town of Nevada City, a town made famous by the 1849 Gold Rush. Brewers Jim Harte and Simon Olney have always been fascinated with old-world beer styles. In addition to classic European lagers and robust ales from the British Isles, the brewery features American beer styles that date back to the mid-19th century.

The beer

Inspired by these world-renowned styles, Jim and Simon handcraft lagers like a Dortmunder Export, a Helles and their version of a California Common. Their ales include an English-style IPA, a Celtic Red and the blackest Export Stout you will ever encounter. These beers and others are available in the taproom at the brewery by the Imperial pint. ol’ Republic Brewery also offers growlers so you can enjoy these handcrafted beers at home.
