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!

Fantastic place to stop for a couple beers and a burger. My order was mixed up and I was delivered a Buffalo’ed Buffalo Burger which turned out to be delicious. The highlight was Global Kolsch - a faithful replica of the local brew of Köln, Germany. Apparently they source their yeast and malt from the region.

I'm not a pale ale beer drinker, bitter is not a taste i like and i understand a lot of people like pale ale, but the bear republic offers nothing but bitter beer, even their amber ale is bitter yuk! how about some barley malt with the hops! Enough about their lousy beer, the service was horrible we had to ask someone to clean our table, the bar area looked unkept, sloppy, the food is average at best looks like a good location for a fly feast. I can find better beer just about anywhere else, not going again

My husband and I really enjoyed this place. We came for lunch and had a pleasant meal outside. We also did the beer tasting which we found was great value and some tasty beers.

Two friends enjoyed a pleasant dinner on the patio, sampling beers and ordering small plates. The tilapia cevice with home baked tortila chips was terrific, as was the flatbread of the day. Fresh asparagus were nicely-grilled and served with lemon. The food was fresh and well-prepard: a satisfying brew pub meal that wasn't heavy, greasy, or fried.

Service was friendly. The interior seemed very dark (as you might expect in a pub), but the patio was more inviting. Avoid seats near the two doors to the restaurant, however; there'a fan above each door that makes a large noise each time the doors are opened or closed: very distracting if you're sitting under them! Limited wine choices, not surprising, perhaps for a brewing company. Prices are very reasonable

I am not a beer drinker, so I have no reason to go to the Bear for their IPA. The reason to go is that they make fantastic hamburgers! I had the Stubby burger, which was awesome, and it was way more food than the average person can eat. Others in our group had other burgers, and everyone totally enjoyed their meal. The other highlight for members of our party was their chocolate mousse. It was a favorite of some of our group, although I didn't find it to be anything special. All in all, this is a good, reasonable place to enjoy a meal (or a drink) in Healdsburg (which is full of over-priced, pretentious restaurants.) Go and enjoy yourself!
