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!

During our trip to Northern California, someone at Russian River Brewing Company suggested we stop at Bear Republic just for the chili. We planned to stop there anyway, but the tip on that chili was priceless. They keep a wild game chili on the menu, and the meat used varies depending on the day of week. On Saturday, we were treated to venison. My wife is usually very critical on her chili, but this one blew us away. We ordered a cup, but then my wife demanded another one! That states volumes. Unfortunately, this was the only thing we tried on the food menu. The bar staff was really great. They gave us about 4 samples on the house to try out, before we ordered a pint apiece. This night, they had two special beers; Mt. Hood Rebellion and Triskel Rebellion. Both were really amazing.

We went to a rehearsal dinner here that allowed us to sample all their excellent beers. Faves were the IPA and stouts. Food is not that great, so eat elsewhere. But the beers are great!

The usual sports bar food. Good beer, however. If you're looking for an honest meal you can pronounce.

Wanted something less fussy and fancied a decent beer. Wasn't disappointed, the beers were very good though they ought to consider brewing them a little less alcoholic - they might actually sell more beer! Burgers were good and tasty and the garlic fries lived up to the billing. Atmosphere was a bit lacking ( no game on) and by 9 o'clock the place was virtually deserted.

This is a great brewery restaurant in a lovely, quaint town. Jennifer H was an outstanding server; always smiling and willing to help. We came mainly to try the beers but found the food to be excellent as well. Sat outside on the covered patio on a very pleasant, warm evening. Definitely worth visiting if you are in Healdsburg and want to try something other than wine for a change.
