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!

Nice brews and surprisingly good food

Had dinner there. Nice brews and surprisingly good food. Go for the Kobe burger! Nice outside patio, well worth to have a beer there.

The fries could be a meal all in itself but make sure your dining partner has them too.....the garlic! Wow! But so good. The sandwich was fresh and tasty. We started with the wings, half bbq and half honey chipotle. I couldn't decided which was better so I had two of each. The beers weren't my favorite but it's always... More

Right off of the main shopping area of Healdsburg is the brewery. Early dinner and enjoyed their garlic fries, wings (honey chipotle and bbq) and shared a chicken Asiago sandwich. All fresh and tasty. Server friendly. Families or groups drinking beer all enjoyed themselves. Oh, and had a Racer 5 IPA to wash it down. Nice meal.

We went to lunch at the Bear Republic and enjoyed the setting by the creek that flows through town. This restaurant has a fantastic patio by the creek and park. The food was very good and the service was well above average. What more could one want; Good Food, Beautiful Setting and Good, friendly Service!!

After a day of wine tasting it was a nice change of pace to have some appetizers and a cold beer. The brussell sprouts and the calamari are both outstanding. Service is very good too. Only one bathroom for such a large space is not good.

This is a good stop for lunch. The beer is cold and brewed there. They have some tasty sours called Tartars. I'd go back for the drinks.

Okay - the food was tasty - although the menu seemed a bit limited. Biggest drawback? This place is primarily a bar (lots of different beers) - but it only has a single stall ladies room. Was there on a Saturday night. People drinking and eating. Needed to head to the restroom. Got to the area - 5 other women... More

This is a Brewery/Restaurant. I only went to the bar but was impressed with all of their hand crafted beer selection. I recommend the sampler so you can taste a little of everything they make. I was most impressed with their Racer 5 IPA which is one of the best I have tasted. Bar staff was great.

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.
