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 Beer in Wine Country

A well regarded excellent brewery with wide distribution. They make great beers. Enjoy them here in a local pub environment. The food is your classic pub grub.

Expected more of a dining menu, very limited and over priced. The beer menu on the other hand was extensive and the beer was good. To be honest I will not return here to dine, maybe for a beer. There are other places in Healdsburg that are much better.

Stopped in after visiting this quaint town filled with restaurants, art and boutiques. Food was not horrible but with all the other choices I would definitely choose another place to eat. Menu sounds great and there was only two of us so maybe we ordered the wrong items. The Ahi tuna was sliced way to thick and not very good.... More

We had fun here. I like hoppy beers and tried the hoppy flight. Other than the Red Rocket Ale, which is my favorite red beer, the beer just didn't blow me away. The food was good, and it has a nice outdoor seating area. Would recommend stopping by if you are in town and like breweries. Your palate may be... More

With over 15 home brewed beers and ales in house you are sure to find something to your liking. If beer isn't your thing, then they do have wine and even water. The portions are big, especially the fish po'boy. You have to try the garlic fries, they are to die for. Salads are fresh and the dressing homemade. The... More

Ribs amazing, burgers amazing, fries amazing, dessert--- aaamazing! Everywhere I looked people were in a euphoric state. It became a game as we watched guests facial expressions when they took the first bite of their meals. Our group of four loved everything about this place- well almost (only 2 single bathrooms in the whole place- very little for # of... More

I enjoyed the beers at Bear Republic, but the food, as it is with most brew pubs, was it or miss. The brewery fries were great, but who can't do fries? My wife ordered some dip the next day that was dreadful. Another big minus for me was the fact that they only fill their own growlers. I understand not... More

Stopped here with friends and it was a fun experience. Seated promptly. Good selections of beer. Had the Brewben sandwich and the crab sandwich, and both were very good. Meals came quickly. Our server, Travis, was very pesonable and made it a fun experience. Atmosphere is typical brew-pub.

We were four ladies in for lunch when visiting Healdsburg on a 2 hour stop to eat and shop. Firstly, we weren't allowed to sit outside although a table was available without reserved sign. Oh well. The waitress took our drinks and food order. We received our drinks in good time but after waiting 30 minutes without food, began asking... More
