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!

“Beer Drinkers Heaven with Happy Hour Too”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

I don't do beer often, but it is fun to sample right at the source.

Just off the cool Healdsburg square is Bear Republic Brewing which has a bunch of micro-brews for all tastes.

I enjoy the outdoor patio for food and cold ones.

Their Vegetarian options could be better... SO I guess you'll just have to drink more beer.

“Amazing beer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We have wanted to o to Bear Republic for years because Racer 5 is one of my favorite beers. Healdsburg is a great town and Bear Replublic is a great space. I thought it was going to be a lot bigger, it would be great if it were!

We went the day after 4th of July and it was packed! They were understaffed but the bartender really made the experience great even though he was overwhelmed. The beer is amazing! Didn't eat there but the food looked good.

“Best Rueben in the North Bay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

I like Rueben sandwiches. I mean I really like them. This place just gets Reuben's like no other place I've ever tried before. The bread is toasted perfectly, the sauce is just enough and they've perfected the rught combination of sweet/sour with the kraut. I get the Rueben every single time I come here and I am never disappointed.

I feel like one right now, in fact, just thinking about it. Hmmm...

“Bar quality food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

This is a traditional brew pub; one goes there for the beer, or for the value, or for the ambience. We enjoyed our evening there, but the food was nothing to write home (or to Trip Advisor) about.
