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!

“Good diversion for after wine tasting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

After wines tasting for 3 hours, we turned for food. This is one of the few places open after 2:00 for lunch as many close at 2:00 to change out and prepare for dinner later. Very juicy burgers, generous portions of salads and french fries were yummy. desserts looked good but was too full to partake. Decent selection of beer. wait staff was busy, since it was a rainy 3-day weekend, maybe they were understaffed. would recommend and return again

“Don't get the giant garlic”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Our beers were ok, had to ask the server for a water three times. We ordered the mega garlic which would have been fine if the bread hadn't been stale... The waitress asked us if we realized it was toasted... Toasted can still be stale lady. Needless to say we won't be eating here again.

“Great American Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

I always love a great hamburger or fishy fry. This place has both. Waiter was very friendly and the ones that had their beer, said it was good. Would absolutely go back.

“Nice brewpub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Went to lunch here while visiting in Healdsburg. My husband and I shared a Brewben and a beer flight. The beer was ok though we have had better. The sandwich was ok. The pastrami had been cut incorrectly and was very hard to chew. When we mentioned to the waitress she brought us some more pastrami and it was a little better.

“Good beer, casual atmosphere, awesome garlic fries.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We love to stop by Bear Republic whenever we are in Healdsburg. My husband loves the beer and the food is good as well. It can get busy at times and service a little slow, but as long as you are there to have a good time, drink some beer, and relax this is a great place to do it. The garlic fries a totally awesome, but I wouldn't have them if you expect to kiss anyone for the next 6 hours. I also love the honey brie, yum!
