Their beers can be found in many places throughout the Dominican Republic including in many stores of Nacional, Sirena, Jumbo and others. They also have a bar in Isabel La Católica Street in the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo (REPUBLICA BREWING DRAFT ROOM).

According to the founder of República Brewing, while served cold their beers can also be consumed warm and many get more flavors that way.

PS. RJ López is Dominican (Cuban father, Dominican mother), but has a strong American accent due to living for many years in the USA and speaking mostly English.

They must not sell outside the Santo Domingo area as I have not seen any of those in the Bavaro/ PC area.
I would probably try a few if they showed up here

If you want to drive on down and pick up a few I will certainly share the cost of the beer and enjoy a few with you 🍻🍺
None of the sour one thou. Sour beer just sounds bad 🤢🤮

That was May thru August. When I got here in October all anyone had was Coors light and MGD. If you really searched you could find some Brahma light and Modello. Corona was always there but its just Coors light in glass bottle for 50% more.
In all fairness, when I walk in now and see either Presidente normal or Bohemia I just buy it without looking at the shelf.
If I see Canita I want to burn the store down but that's a whole different issue

The first 3 in Nals first photo look OK. But chocolate or sour beer? If you want chocolate eat a Mars bar. If you want sour, well maybe go see a doctor

I went to Liqormart today, they had these beers and these beers are priced between 140 to 180 pesos per 355ml bottle. Modelo was on sale for 65 pesos for a 355ml bottle.
I will be drinking Modelo this week.
At these prices I don't know if they micro brewery can survive in this market. I won't be supporting them. They are above my pay grade.

I went to their location three times last week, the sour brew is actually a very good beer. La More is also one of my favorites, but it is very heavy and I can only drink one. There used to be a good beer called "La Negra" which was fairly similar.

On a side note, a draft beer at their location in La Zona is 450 pesos. I know... "location" but it's insane to me. Two rounds of their own draft beer for 40 dollars. The ambiance and music are nice though. There are a couple of other breweries with prices far below that. Tap Room Santo Domingo is a cool alternative. You can do a tour of their facility and it includes a flight of beers for 600 pesos I believe.
