Democratic Republic of Beer Opens Second Location

- The DRB (Democratic Republic of Beer): Best Bottled Beer Selection 2010
Democratic Republic of Beer, the small brew house with an outstanding collection of beers, is expanding with a new location in downtown Miami.
The new DRB, which opens Friday, November 9, will feature an expanded beer selection with 50 brews on tap and an even larger bottle collection than the original location. That's saying a lot, because in 2010, we gave some "best of" love to DRB for their extensive bottle selection.
This new location will have much more indoor seating space and a covered outdoor area, perfect for enjoying the new cool weather.
An international menu will offer beer and food pairings by country of origin as well as by beer type.
In addition to food and beer, DRB will feature cigar and beer pairings and a rotating cask filled with small batch beers.
Co-owner Giorgio Saumat has plans on working with local home and small batch brewers to give them a place to gather, share information, and beer. Plans are in the works for an on-site brewing and tasting lounge where brewers will have the opportunity to showcase their wares.
To seal the deal, the new DRB has free parking after 6 p.m. for patrons, with discounted parking for lunch (yes, they're open for lunch).
For those of you who like smaller, more intimate places in which to enjoy a few brews, don't have a panic attack -- the original DRB is remaining open for business as usual.
