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!

A nice place to socialize but food not good

I have been here several times for social gatherings. I am not a beer drinker, and I understand that the Bear has excellent beer. I am rating the food. I have had lunch here twice. I spent $20 for lunch one time-- mediocre fish sandwich -- it was greasy, but I liked the French fries. The second... read more

They make their own beers (some glasses are two times bigger than beer mugs), have dishes that you can get your "teeth and mouth" onto. Nothing fancy, just great ingredients and combinations. My favorite - Lobster Bisque. Too much and can't get enough of it. Service is great and the pricing is a "steal".

Very good beer! We shared a pitcher of black bear stout. Would recommend. Didn't eat anything so can't comment on food.

This is definitely a come as you are place to gather with friends and family. Food is always good no matter whether you just want a nibble, a sandwich or burger, or an entree meal. Beers are very good to excellent and the staff can help you pair the right beer for your palate and the meal you've ordered.

Today we stopped in for a late lunch. It was three in the afternoon and there were a lot of patrons there. I ordered the Hum Baby Crab Sandwich. It was made with fresh crab from Bodega Bay. I can't say enough about this sandwich.....it was delicious!!! Our server Kyle was very knowledgable about the food and beers. We enjoyed... More

Dropped by for lunch and was blown away by their SF beer and cheese pairing. Whoever curated these combos knew what they were doing. It was a perfect representation of their beer and wonderful west coast cheeses. I kind of wish I had stopped there, because the food I ordered was a bit underwhelming. The clam chowder did not taste... More

Had lunch here and it's what you would expect from a brew pub. Good food and beers. On busy days you can plan on waiting awhile for refills, food and your bill but over all a pleasant experience.
