If you are looking for a sports bar with beer and bar food this is it. If you are looking for foodies food there are most likely better options.

On vacation, visiting Healdsburg with my friend from nearby Solano County, we drove north to Sonoma County to visit Bear Republic Brewery Co. - I usually enjoy their 'Racer 5' ale often when visiting our local Von's supermarket back home in SoCal. However, for my first visit here I was able to see closeup how some of the ales are... More

We stopped in here a couple of times while in Healdsburg and it was great! It is in every sense a brew pub, and it is not fine dining so dont expect that type of food here. That isnt a knock at all, it is simply an accurate description. Thus said, the beer selections are great and the food is... More

Nice local brewing company. Great choice of beers and food, very good fries too! Good seating inside and out. Downtown location with 3 hour parking all around. Great beers for a change from wine tasting. Very friendly/helpful staff. Fast service.

We had the fish and chips with the appropriate brew to match--EXCELLENT choice, very good. The noise level inside is deafening and will leave your ears ringing for days afterwards. We choose the outside for that reason but even with heat lamps it was chilly and our food cooled quickly leaving us with cold fish and chips, but at least... More

We visited Bear Republic for lunch as we arrived into town. The beer was very good as well as the food. It's just what I expected for a brewery/restaurant, casual and a little rustic. The location is good downtown but was a little hard to find as it's down a walkway and doesn't front the main street. The signs are... More

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 lunch was outrageously... 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".

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!
