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!

“Friendly local brewery, a nice down-to-earth experience”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

We popped into the Bear Republic Brewing company to wait for a table at one of the "fancier" restaurants, but at the end of the night ended up thinking we should've stayed there for the whole night. Service was really friendly and although there was no formal table service to the beer garden, they helped us carry our order and overall made sure we were comfortable. Our group only shared some starters and sampled the local beers – food was ok and the beers were superb. What we also really enjoyed was the laid back, friendly atmosphere.

“Really good beers and good food”
Reviewed 17 June 2012 via mobile

The food is nothing fancy but is good. We had burgers with the special fries and it was really good after a long day walking. We tried about 8 different kinds of beers, it was a nice experience. You can eat outside if you want. The employees are friendly and helpful. It's kind of funny to drink beer in Wine Country but all the other restorants were either full or had really expensive (>45$) wine. It's a place to go to unwind, the locals go there, very honest place.

“Food OK, but the bathroom situation- UNACCEPTABLE”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

We went to this place because of it looked popular and we just wanted a quick, casual lunch. The place is the typical casual restaurant- local brew beer, burgers, fries, etc.

After ordering I went to the men's restroom and oh my God. First, the open room was filthy- wet floor, used paper towels on the floor, but the worst was the space planning or lack thereof. The facilities were an open room with 3 urinals on the left wall and a single toilet on the right wall- all of which were readily visible when the door was opened. There were 6-8 women waiting in the the hallway to enter the ladies' room and every time the men's room door was opened they were "treated" to a full view of the urinals and a single toilet.

I felt like I was in a 3rd world country. A notice was placed on the door stating the restaurant would be closed in early June- I can only hope they will be bringing the men's restroom up to first world standards.
