1st Republic Brewing Co. was founded in 2013 in Fairfax, Vermont. Two friends and military veterans came together with one dream; to craft the finest original beers for all to appreciate. 1st Republic Brewing Co. began in a garage with a single burner system and maintains the dream and perseverance to grow while staying true to their hometown values. 1st Republic Brewing Co, as accomplished Vermonters, creates unique brews, while enjoying the fruits of their labor. With respect and honor for this Nations' First Republic, 1st Republic Brewing Co. has deep Vermont roots and represents the heart and soul of the hardworking people of this great state. Vermont is a state that takes pride in local grown products and it has the reputation of creating the best products in the country, from maple syrup, to cheese, beer and much more, and we want to be apart of that strong community of local producers. With a mindfulness of the past and an eye on the future, 1st Republic is brewing great beer for great people.
