Description: 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!

Well... I thought no smoking within city, but guess no one stops drunk employees off the clock. Staff knew and saw. But we should have complained. Not the way you should treat your paycheck folks. The food was ok. The flavor on the garlic fries was perfect too bad they were tepid at best. We ordered 5 burgers a panini... More

We visited Bear Republic as part of a Northern California coastal brewery hopping trip. We traveled with another couple, stopping at 2 breweries a day, tasting then ordering growlers to go and enjoying them at our campsite at night. We visited 6 breweries over 3 days and Bear Republic was the favorite for all four of us. Great beer, great... More

Great beer, I many, we stopped in Healdsburg to visit wine country and this was a pleasant break from the wineries. The food was good with a good selection of brewery type fayre (if you want fine dining there are enough other places in Healdsburg). The beer was great, the full selection of Bear Republic beers were available and well... More

Fantastic place to stop for a couple beers and a burger. My order was mixed up and I was delivered a Buffalo’ed Buffalo Burger which turned out to be delicious. The highlight was Global Kolsch - a faithful replica of the local brew of Köln, Germany. Apparently they source their yeast and malt from the region.

My husband and I really enjoyed this place. We came for lunch and had a pleasant meal outside. We also did the beer tasting which we found was great value and some tasty beers.

Two friends enjoyed a pleasant dinner on the patio, sampling beers and ordering small plates. The tilapia cevice with home baked tortila chips was terrific, as was the flatbread of the day. Fresh asparagus were nicely-grilled and served with lemon. The food was fresh and well-prepard: a satisfying brew pub meal that wasn't heavy, greasy, or fried. Service was friendly.... More

I am not a beer drinker, so I have no reason to go to the Bear for their IPA. The reason to go is that they make fantastic hamburgers! I had the Stubby burger, which was awesome, and it was way more food than the average person can eat. Others in our group had other burgers, and everyone totally enjoyed... More

Racer 5 anyone. If you like a good IPA this is the place. It's like drinking guiness in England. Racer 5 one of the best.
