Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stopped in and had some of the local brews, and tried some of the barrel aged beers. Overall the beer was great and had a nice atmosphere. We did not try their food, but they looked to have nice Happy Hour specials. If you like good beer, it's worth a look.

A little disappointed in the menu changes. Less selections/options, but the food was really good, as always. It's an annual event to go, as a family group, to Bear Republic for dinner. This year, the age range was under 1 year old to 78 years old. Everybody was pleased with their meal. Garlic fries are amazing! Even a few vegetarian... More

Thanks for your review and joining us for your annual family dinner! Yes, we are going through some menu changes, but only temporary until we get our summer menu up and running, which should be soon. If you have an old favorite, you can always ask your server, and usually we can make some of them for you even though... More

Super layout, whether indoors or out, to enjoy a huge range of mouthwatering burgers, award winning chili, and fresh brewed beers. Big variety of beer recipes they partake in. Family owned. Gets quite busy at happy hour. Parking available in large lot off North Street. TVs in several corners of interior dining room. Service at bar can be spotty. Be... More

This place is great for all ages but especially if you love beer: Bear Republic beer is awesome, Racer 5 classic IPA, fun food bar type but extensive menu. You can get growlers and beer to go as well.

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!
