Beer and burgers

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.

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

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.

On vacation, visiting Healdsburg with my friend from nearby Solano County, we drove north to Sonoma County to visit Bear Republic Brewery Co. - I usually enjoy their 'Racer 5' ale often when visiting our local Von's supermarket back home in SoCal. However, for my first visit here I was able to see closeup how some of the ales are... More

We stopped in here a couple of times while in Healdsburg and it was great! It is in every sense a brew pub, and it is not fine dining so dont expect that type of food here. That isnt a knock at all, it is simply an accurate description. Thus said, the beer selections are great and the food is... More

Nice local brewing company. Great choice of beers and food, very good fries too! Good seating inside and out. Downtown location with 3 hour parking all around. Great beers for a change from wine tasting. Very friendly/helpful staff. Fast service.

We had the fish and chips with the appropriate brew to match--EXCELLENT choice, very good. The noise level inside is deafening and will leave your ears ringing for days afterwards. We choose the outside for that reason but even with heat lamps it was chilly and our food cooled quickly leaving us with cold fish and chips, but at least... More

We visited Bear Republic for lunch as we arrived into town. The beer was very good as well as the food. It's just what I expected for a brewery/restaurant, casual and a little rustic. The location is good downtown but was a little hard to find as it's down a walkway and doesn't front the main street. The signs are... More
