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!

Great food, local spot

Traveled as family- my brothers and mother loved the beer. The food was fantastic and we all stuffed ourselves with big smiles on each bite. The crowd was mostly local for a Thursday afternoon but not rowdy. Food came quick even without a waitress (we sat near the bar and had to order from the... read more

Every time we visit Healdsburg we make it a point to stop at the Bear Republic. The food is good and was able to accommodate a larger group.

Bear republic is a great spot to go get a few pitchers of awesome beer for an awesome price (I think it was about $15 per pitcher). The pub food is high quality as well!

Food and beer are always good. Can get a little crowded on the weekends because of the tourists. Good sized outdoor area. Great service from the servers and bartenders, but most of the hosts lack basic customer service skills. Also, the last two or three times I've eaten here I immediately got sick and so did the people I went... More

Our party chose the chili, black&blue burger, Asian salad, and a huge side of garlic fries. All were good but if you like cheesy bacon burgers, the burger was the best choice. Outdoor setting was also delightful.

Just left Bear Republic. We went for a late dinner with an infant. Good service and fun, busy atmosphere. Food was okay. I had a Cubano- lots of bread, but good flavor. Coleslaw and fries were average. Both could have used more seasoning. We also had some garlic fries, but couldn't really taste the garlic. The Mac and cheese app... More

Great beer that seems to rotate frequently. The space is pretty big and noisy, but it's a brewpub, the way it should be! Big menu that could satisfy anybody. The burgers were good and service was really good. Does it get any better than a burger and a brew!?

Look for a seat on the patio overlooking the greenway. The setting sun with a cold beer and a big ol' burger made this a great introduction to Healdsburg during our recent trip. The portion sizes were large and the beer selection excellent.

Just stopped by for a beer to check out their craft. Almost left after standing at the bar like a fool for over 6 minutes with out so much as a hello. Service is an issue beer was ok.
