Democratic Republic of Beer's Second Location Soft Opening Weekend (Photos)

Democratic Republic of Beer, Miami's late night beer and wine local featuring over 500 beers from around the world, opened its second location in three years in downtown on Friday night.

Business was slow at first but intensified by 8 p.m., nearly reaching maximum occupancy by midnight. Saturday and Sunday turned out to be a bit slower , but that will soon change as the basketball and football seasons progress.
