Bear Republic Brewing Company - Healdsburg
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!
Delicious food, tasty beer, and great service!
First off, Bear Republic has excellent beer. Where this really stumbles though is the menu, the food was overcooked and unappetizing. If they work on the food and make it as good as the beer it would be great.
I get together with my sisters in-laws 3 times a year on our birthdays and we were all delighted with our lunch. The bbq pork sandwich was superb and the salad was very tasty and fresh. We commented that it was the best lunch that we have had. Our server was very helpful and upbeat he brought smiles and laughter to our table. We were seated in an area with an outside view and that was so appreciated. I always am amazed at the delicious selections at Bear Republic and I know they use the best of ingredients so I'm not afraid to experiment.
Kalah was wonderful! Very attentive and sweet. Great meal. The pesto chicken sandwich was divine!
Great burgers, casual outdoor dining, and friendly servers. Nothing super special, but it meets expectations for a good meal at a fair price. I’ll return and can recommend others go too.
Excellent experience 👍.
We enjoyed the patio. They were really busy and we still received good service.
Burgers, garlic fries and calamari.
Great food and service!
It was just ok. Unfortunately I didn’t try the beer as it was too early for me.
A custom flight of great beer with wild boar chili and wings. What else could you ask for?
The table was ready at the reservation time. Service was prompt and accurate. The food was delivered in a timely manner and the taste was great.
They charge extra for mayo on a burger?
Great beer and food in a really relaxing atmosphere. Our service was great. Thanks for a lovey evening!
Enjoyed our 'brewery' stop in the heart of Sonoma wine country. This Healdsburg location had very good food and excellent service (Kayla!) in a fun and casual atmosphere. We enjoyed our visit start to finish.
Great place to stop on our way up the coast for a quick bite to eat!
The food was just okay, she for bad food. The restaurant closed at 9 and at 905 the wait staff was pushing us out the door.
Great beer and good pub food. Service was excellent too!
I have eaten at Bear Public many times over the years & was Satisfied. But the last two times the food has not been good. In fact the last time, I took a friend and I was embarrassed. She took one bite and said this is truly awful.The dinner I ordered was not very good but I did finish it. Very disappointing.
We had our group for lunch for one of our employee's retirement. Food and service was outstanding.
Thank you for great food and of course best Beer.
Sat at bar and watched football game. Good beer selection!
Not bad but not great. Very limited uninspired menu.
First of all the service by Sean the bartender was great. He recommended the Hop Shovel and it did not disappoint. We started with the traditional wings and sauce but they had a unique tasty flavor. The best was yet to come. Tri-tip sandwich was delicious with mushrooms and sautéed onions on a soft roll. The place is tucked away down an alley but glad we found it.
The Bear Republic Brewing company is a fun spot. We had reservations for a large group and had to wait but the manager comped us our drinks. We appreciated that. The tables have games on them and part fo our group played Uno while waiting for their food. The noise level was very loud which I enjoyed but some in our party did not. The food was very good, large portions, excellant root beer and regular beer. Overall, a good, fun experience for a rowdy party. TVs show sports as well.
The food was not hot. We had pasta and soup, Luke warm.
Eh. Service was okay but the food was nothing outstanding. One person ordered a ‘medium’ burger and it was pretty darn pink. Taste was okay just nothing to rave about.
The restaurant is famous for their IPA’s ofcourse but they dish out a solid hamburger, great coleslaw, and wonderful appetizers. Sport bar atmosphere with TVs etc.
Ryan at the bar has been there 20 years and adds to the friendly, relaxed, casual atmosphere.
Good not amazing, service was slow, outside was nice
Great patio. Food was good
Great service from all staff! The food was very tasty and well prepared.
We all felt like burgers. Everyone ordered a different burger and everyone raves about how good they were.
The service was great. The food selection was very slim. Plenty of burgers and salads to choose from. Extremely loud inside - outside would be a better option if the weather allows. Food was average. Burger was fall apart messy. If you are there for the beer- then it is a great place.
good beer, place definitely in need of a good cleaning and a remodel if they want to stay competitive...
Love the food and friendly service. This is a great spot for a casual meal
Our celebration for our daughter’s going away party was a disappointment . Our beer and garlic fries arrived in a timely manner. They were the only thing that did. The prime rib was overcooked, salad order was not correct, food arrived cold and at different times, part of our order never arrived, and our waitress was unavailable. The members of our party gave up and went to the bar to refill their drinks. We had to ask other wait staff for help. I will re-think dining here again.
Go for the beer, not the food. Their beers are amazing but I should have known better than to expect stellar food from a brewery. But it it's in Healdsburg so I figured you cant' get away with mediocre food. I was wrong. If you want a burger and fries and a beer, this is your joint but otherwise just drink.
Great beers! Tasty lunch! Service was a little slow for how busy they weren’t when we arrived
Great food and beer....love that they are pet friendly
Accommodated our large group. Fast and friendly service, great food, fun times
I don't dine out often, so I don't have much of a sample to compare, but having a quick, early dinner here was a pleasant experience, including easy access to parking, and a rather serene setting for the middle of Healdsburg. Service was really good, and employees outgoing and friendly. The food quality was excellent, and a bit pricey, but not unreasonably so. If I lived closer, I'd likely stop by more often, but now have a place I can rely on for a casual get-together when I'm in the Healdsburg area.
The black and blue burger is fantastic. So is the guacamole with chicherones.
