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.

Great beer and food

We have been coming here for years. They have a great variety of beers (I like sour ales and my husband likes hoppy - both of us are satisfied). The food is also very good and filling. Weekends, however, have become very crowded and busy, but worth the wait.

Great service and delicious food! We've eaten here several times during trips to Healsburg and we haven't been disappointed. The service is always friendly, attentive, and fast. Although you may think you're just going to get standard bar food, it's actually well prepared (if you ask for your burger medium rare, that's how it's going to come out) and the... More

We were visiting our family in the Russian river area for thanksgiving. We went to Bear Republic the day after thanksgiving to explore the town of Healdsburg and walk around. It took almost an hour to get seated (mind you it was 3pm not a normal lunch rush hour) and then the service was extremely slow. The waiter spilled a... More

Good craft beers and nice outdoor seating area at the back of the bar. We didn't have food but it looked like it would be a nice place to have lunch although it was quite busy inside and a bit crowded.

Had lunch, the Reuben, the Black & Blue burger, the garlic fries are amazing! Love the beer, too! The second time we went we had the... More

We went with a large group and had to wait 1 hour until there was space - but it was totally worth it. The food option is amazing and as I discovered that they also have gluten-free buns, I had my first burger in 20 years. Wow, that was totally amazing. Very tasty.

This was an ok place. It has a fun atmosphere when you walk in. But the food is typical pub type fare. It's off the square in downtown.

We stopped in for a beer and dinner. There were 6 of us so we had the sampler menu of beers before we each ordered a pint. All of us had a different preference but thought the diversity of beers was great. The food was pretty good too. Typical bar type foods but better than average quality.
