Description: 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!

Well made beer. Big bear black, hop rod ipa, racer 5, etc. All worth the trip to Healdsburg. Food as also good. But you go there for the beer! It is a brewery!

We only came in for a few drinks before finding a restaurant for dinner, but we enjoyed the drinks and atmosphere so stayed longer. The beers we tried were enjoyed by both of us, I tried an IPA and a Scottish Style ale (can't remember the names only parts of the description) and they both went down smoothly. We had... More

Very good brew pub that delivers very good food and no pretentiousness. Good craft beers and serious pub food and no grief. Reuben was excellent, jake peon burger and press sandwich were also outstanding, crab sandwich was good but could be better. Overall very good.

I must preface my review by disclosing that I am a bit of a craft beer aficionado. I take every opportunity to sample limited release, small batch, and local brews. I have had Bear Republic's "Racer 5" before, and was not disappointed, but also wasn't highly impressed. I would consider it a session IPA, but that's my taste. We came... More

Bear Republic Brewing is a refreshing change of pace from the high priced wine scene restaurants in Healdsburg including other bar and grill places. Pulled pork sandwich was good but a bit dry and could have used extra sauce. Prices are very reasonable and portions are generous.

This was a nice change of pace from all the wine! Our server was extremely friendly and helpful with suggestions. Great portions. We got the buffalo wings here and they were very good. We enjoyed our lunch.

We stopped in here because we'd had enough wine for a few days, what an energetic, entertaining place to stop. The beer is good, for ken that doesn't really drink beer, and the food was fun as well, burger joint food with a twist. I definitely recommend the burgers, done to perfection!

This great local pub is huge. They do a great job with the crowds. The staff is young but very friendly and helpful. The space is casual and comfortable. It can be very loud when the indoor room is full. There is also an outdoor terrace. They have lots of custom brews. We all enjoyed the burger offerings. Good beef,... More
