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!

FUN EXPERIENCE

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.

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

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

Four of us stopped in for beers and a light bite and the place was very busy for a Monday. The TVs everywhere made it easy to watch games and gave a fun atmosphere to the place. We would definitely stop in again!

We didn't eat here unfortunately but would love to return and try some nibbles. I'm not that beer knowledgable. Just know what I like but my husband is and he really enjoyed their beer. Outdoor seating as well which is a nice plus.

I wasn't blown away by the food or service and the atmosphere was so-so. There are better places for a burger in Healdsburg. I don't drink beer so this might be a great place if you're a fan of their brews.

Spent an enjoyable evening here taking some time off wine during a recent trip to the area. We did the sampler paddles, and whilst I can't honestly say all of the beers were to my taste, there was enough variety to keep anyone who likes beer happy. Good happy vibe in this place, unlike the Healdsburg Bar and Grill down... More

We love Bear Republic Beer (Racer 5) and were really excited to visit their brewery when we visited Healdsberg in May. Food was average, service was a bit slow. Beer was good but nothing overwhelming. If you're going to visit in brewery in Sonoma, would definitely skip Bear Republic and go to Russian River, even if you have to wait... More
