Located in Sonoma County, you might wonder how a brewery in the heart of California"s wine country could make such distinctively flavorful beers. With awards too plentiful to list, the Bear's creations are too good to miss. Founded in 1995, the Norgrove family and Bear Republic Brewing Company strive to foster a sense of loyalty and tradition from eras gone by. From the humble beginnings of home brewing, to the demanding process of commercial brewing, came the realization that to produce the distinctive flavors and aroma we found appealing required the founding of our own Brewery and Brewpub. The Norgrove Family invites you to come by for good, healthy food and our award winning ales and lagers. Located on the corner of Healdsburg's historic downtown square, our family environment guarantees a good time for all!

The quintessence of brewpub food and atmosphere here in Sonoma County! My go to pub in Healdsburg. Go for the beer and stay for the garlic fries! Outdoor patio is one of the best for people watching.

Great Place to have lunch when visiting Healdsburg. They have a nice patio if the weather is good. The food is very good and service is excellent.

In the heart of downtown Healdsburg. A local favorite and friendly place to hangout. TVs strategically located throughout the bar for viewing of sporting events. Heated, covered, outdoor seating available. A huge variety of beers. Order a "samplers" so you can taste the difference. A good, standard menu. Hamburgers are great. Servers are friendly and knowledgable.

I've been here before pre Racer 5 and after the discovery of said brewskie. Now everything just seems a little better. Definitely a 4 star brew pub experience.

Loved the decor - bikes! The beer was great, burgers were good, too. Terrific casual dinner after a day of wine tasting.

My wife once did a blind tasting of her favorite IPA's, and to her surprise, she chose Racer 5. She even did the blind again, and she still chose Racer 5. That is not particularly shocking as great IPAs can be found in California from Healdsburg all the way down to San Diego. Needless to say, our love of Bear... More

The beer was awesome and Ryan the bartender knew his stuff! Food looked great, but we were there only to try the beer, since they brew their own beer. Great place!

We had a late lunch here on a Sunday afternoon after driving up to Healdsburg. Found it listed in the AAA book, which has never steered us wrong yet. We were seated immediately in the colorful indoor dining room. Lots of families, couples, and small kids, plus a 49ers game on the TVs, so the noise level was lively, but... More

This was one of our favorite places that we visited on our trip. My husband loved the beer and the food was great! The server was pleasant and so friendly. It wasn't too terribly busy when we were here and it was worth the drive from Santa Rosa. We definitely want to come here again!
