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.

Surprised us with Good Food and Beer! Order Garlic Fries!

Saw their ad in a local magazine and since my hubby enjoys their beer i thought we'd catch lunch there. We both had the Black and Blue burger - upgraded mine with Garlic fries (possibly the best garlic fries we've had) and he had a salad. Food was delicious! They have a bar section, seating inside... read more

Started our couple of days off with lunch & a beer. A very nice IPA, well worth the walk through the rain to get it. Sand witch was very good. Nice relaxed lunch to start our couple of wine touring days.

Nice bar, with a dozen or so locals having brews of a recent Tuesday afternoon. My favorite beers usually have below 30 IBUs, which is hard to find here. The one beer I wanted to try was listed on the board but actually had not been available for about two months. So I decided to leave. Must say the barkeeps... More

For a nice change from the wine scene, Bear Flag Republic has good burgers and beers. Its very close to the Healdsburg Plaza Square area (i.e. a couple minutes walk from). Service was ok and the vibe was fun.

10 of us from all over the Country met here for lunch before heading out to visit wineries. Great beer! Great food! Great service! Great atmosphere! With so many people eating so many different things and not one person had anything but great things to say about the food, the beer or the service. We certainly will return when back... More

It is a brewery. You go for beer. The food is good, the service is what you would expect at a bar. I have not had the beer so consider that in my review.

If you would like to take a small break from your wine country experience you should drop into the Bear for a "beer country" experience. Great craft brews. Some that you kind back in your neck of the woods and some that are on tap only at the bar. If you like IPA's and the "Café Racer" is on tap... More

Bear Republic had some great beers on tap, and very good burgers. If you sit outside, you have a nice view of a green park area.

If you are looking for a sports bar with beer and bar food this is it. If you are looking for foodies food there are most likely better options.
