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!

This restaurant/brewery is hopping. Excellent selection of beers, Menu provides a wide choice and prepared well. Our meals were very good. Try their soup (lobster bisque) and their crab sandwich- everything was very good. Service was a tad slow given that it wasn't that busy, they could be more attentive. We had to seek out a server- they were pleasant... More

Excellent beer! This is a great spot for a change of pace while in wine country. Grab a cold one and some good eats. Right near the square so take a stroll afterwards and enjoy the town.

It can be good but more often it's not. We've lived in Healdsburg 25 years and really want to support the local guys but food is iffy at best. Good beer though

We made this our 'local' whilst staying in Healdsburg. If you are looking for an antidote to the sometimes pretentious world of wine tasting and haute cuisine, then Bear Republic might be for you. Bear Republic is clearly popular with local residents too. On each of our three visits the atmosphere was enhanced by a range of animated conversations about... More

The food was good, but not fabulous. They do make their own root beer and cream soda, which is very unique. Their garlic fries are the bomb, the brew-bin and buffalo burger are adequate.

Discovered this place just wandering around town for dinner. The atmosphere is "brew pub" - noisy, congenial, great unique décor, and lots of sports on TVs. Service was prompt, helpful and attentive but not rushed. Had a choice of seating inside or on the patio. Several nice craft beers on draft to choose from. Good pub food variety on the... More

A beer among all the wine is a beautiful thing. These beers are fantastic and a flight of them even more fun. The food is great pub food and huge portions. Love it!

It is tough to dine out on a trip when you are trying to eat healthy. BUT - in this case - I believe I had the best ever bunless burger at the Bear Republic Brewing Company. I ordered the blue cheese bacon burger without a bun. And it was absolutely wonderful! Since my return from this trip - I... More

This is the second time we have gone to this brew pub. Last time we just had beer and an appetizer. This time we had beer and dinner. It has inside and outside seating and we sat on the patio outside. They have good beer and a pub atmosphere. I think the food is average and typical for a brew... More
