A bar doesn't need more than 20, maybe 25 taps to please all palates. Anything more is unnecessary bloat. But this is America, land of more choices than we can humanly process. Republic boasts an obscene 100 or so draft beers and ciders, and, refreshingly, doesn't pander too heavily to hop fiends. Co-owner Matty O'Reilly is a steward of Minnesota beer, and while the Seven Corners bar draws heavily from the local well, it doesn't do so for novelty's sake (only the good stuff here). When out-of-town beer fans visit and want to sample the local landscape, skip the taproom circuit and bring them here.
