Pub Republic Opens

Brussels sprouts tacos? Yup.

Brussels Sprouts tacos at Pub Republic in Petaluma

New brewpub and eatery, Pub Republic has opened off Lakeville Hwy. in a space that’s revolved several times, most recently as Zocolos Mexican Grill.

It’s an airy-open space with about a dozen brews on tap including Hop Stoopid double IPA from Lagunitas, a smoked porter from Stone Brewing and Honey Saison from Almanac.

The menu’s standard pub fare that includes fish and chips, burgers and plenty of fried appetizers along with some meatier entrees for dinner. Though our first trip left a bit to be desired on the food end (locals say things are improving), we were intrigued by the Brussels Sprout Tacos ($8) — the sprouts were sauteed with lots of garlic then mixed with lime, cheese and avocado. Not for everyone, but certainly something unique.
