General Info
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!

This was our 2nd brewery (of 3) of the day. As we drove up from Santa Rosa we wanted to stop in Healdsburg for some shopping and a pint. The restaurant was nice (we decided to sit on the patio over looking a greenbelt) and the service and food was good but not great. I sampled all their IPA's and my wife had a an amber. My wife enjoyed hers but I was not impressed with their IPA's. I've purchased Racer 5 from grocery stores a couple of times and when compared to their other IPA's it was the best. It's still not my favorite IPA but it's decent. If your in the area and like your IPA's like do, drive 15 minutes south to Russian River Brewing in Santa Rosa. Pliney is a much better IPA.



Popular place

Food is okay but restrooms need to be cleaned. There are plenty of employees, including manager, just standing around that could improve on overall cleanliness.

Poor quality food

Middle of the road is kind. I felt that the food was marginal at best, in fact, it was barely edible. The menu describes the salad as local baby greens, but what was served was iceberg bag lettuce with shredded cheddar cheese on top. The chicken fettucine pasta hosted chopped up chicken which was probably three days old. Although they had a great IPA, I will not be returning to this brew pub.

Good bar food

Someone mentioned that it is pretty hard to screw up pub food, and I totally agree. The food here is nothing special, the mircrobrews are tasty, but nothing spectacular. Bear is a solid place for drinks and eats, but don't expect more than you should. And, don't expect horrible food or drinks either. It serves its purpose, good waiters, nice attitude and adequate food and drinks. Great location near the square also.

friendly brew pub, tasty beer & awesome fries

Lots of regulars sit at the bar and belong to the ""Brew Buddy"" club and sip from their regular super mugs! We sat by one regular ""rick"" who had all types of facts about the beers and flavors. He was sipping on a mixture of the Rocket Ale and Big Bear Ale which my husband loved. I myself like the dark stouts mixed with the Cider and the Bartender reccomended thier Big Bear with the Rasberry cider. It was so yummy and good to the very last sip. The garlic fries comes in a HUGE basket, easily a meal replacement for 2 plus beer or an appetizer for several. Wish we had eaten here for dinner instead of Zin. The staff was friendly and the regulars were even friendlier. WE will definately visit again!

Great Brew, Ordinary Food

This is a nice little brew pub I like a lot. Lot's of choices of Microbrews. Travellers coming to the area will like it if they are beer lovers. Nice pub atmosphere. They also have food which is middle-of-the-road at best. It's hard to screw-up pub food, but this place needs to change their menu and recipes - and please get a different bun than those stale onion buns they use for burgers -- yecch!
