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!

Food was good and service was great. Bathrooms were foul at 5pm. I’d hate to think what they looked like after the dinner crowd. Restaurant Manager should be horrified in how disgusting their “all gender” restroom was- floors looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in months. Toilet and sink were filthy. Large trash barrel was overflowing with paper towels. Really shouldn’t be in that condition at 5pm.

For a soft opening, the service was excellent. The food arrived quickly and tasted great.

The food took over 45 min, while other tables that came in after us got their food, do being busy isn't an excuse. Aside from that, I ordered my burger rare, it came out with a med-rare temp pick and the burger was actually well done. It honestly was the most disgusting burger I've ever had. I would have mentioned this, but no one came back to check on us. Along with that, you would think since the food took so long, a manager would have swung by the table. Nope. I eat out quite often, around the country and world when traveling, and this was the worst experience I've had in a long time. Don't go here. Trust me.

We came in closer to the end of the night and we were looking for a nice cold beer but instead we weren't greeted or sat at a table so we proceeded to sit ourselves at the bar. When I told the hostess I had a reservation she seemed bothered and told me just go to the bar and order from them she was busy what seemed to be flirting with a group of guys buying tshirts. When we sat the bar there was two bartenders working but only one talked to us while the other proceeded to do busy work and this wasn't until 5 minutes had gone by. Then we ask if we can order food and the she (bartender) replies well you only have 5 minutes until the kitchen closes. So my question is why take a reservation so close to closing? I understand everyone wants to go home after a long day at work but if you are committed to taking a reservation don't rush someone to get them in and out. So our party realized what was going on and we just ordered to go. The brewery was still very busy and while we waited proceeded to see everyone come up to the bar and complain about their day to the bartender and watch them drink as well. Place was dirty and unorganized and if they were in hurry to get out they were doing a very bad job of it by standing around and drinking. When we received the order we were just handed the bag and the order was never check to ensure quality or if it was correct by the person who took the order instead we are asked in a snarky voice if we needed to go silverware.

Had 7 pm reservation & was seated at that time. No one came to table for 20 minutes. When we sought out staff, waitress said she "was slammed." Restaurant wasn't that busy. Ordered water all around, 3 beers & entrees. At 7:35, still no water or drinks. When I asked waitress...attitude. Received drinks at 7:45. Food arrived 5 minutes later ...burgers, sandwiches and fries were all cold. Nachos OK. When finished & asked for the bill, waited another 10 minutes. Immediately gave credit card. "I'll be right back." 5 minutes later, finally received ticket. No service, cold food ... and all after having reservation through Open Table. Worst experience ever.

Went here for dinner on our first night in Healdsburg. I am not much of a beer drinker, but the selections we chose were good.

Our menu selections were good. We started with the cheese curds and for dinner, my wife had the build your own brat, and I had a burger. Everything was good.

Service was very good. The girl who waited on us was new, but she had a terrific attitude and the guy who was training her was also very nice.

They feature a wild game chili on their menu. I am hesitant to order chili in restaurants because usually it isn't very good. Their version is very good. They gave us a taste of it. I would order it if we stop by there again.

This is definitely a casual bar/restaurant. I have read some mixed reviews, but I would say give it a try yourself and form your own opinion.

The beer is great, the service was good, and the burgers and fries were pretty good. The Cubano sandwich was terrible. This is a brew-pub--go for the beer, not the food.

Food was good. The beer was good, but not really anything special. Server was friendly and efficient. Not the cleanest looking place.

The food is ok....appetizers are best. Service can be good or slow. Beer is of course a must!

Always a treat when we are in the area. Cafe Racer 15 was OUTSTANDING as was the BBQ Pork Sandwich. Keep those double iPAs coming&

Can't go wrong with this brew pub/restaurant. Food is good, as were some of their specialty beers. Hard to locate, in alleyway right past Dry Creek Kitchen restaurant, the address is deceiving and not near North cross street as the directions indicate.

The food was good, especially the polenta dish with greens. Chef didn't use what was listed on the menu, but presented the dish with asparagus & mushroom (no brussel sprouts, no chard). Couldn't decide whether to have marinara or pesto sauce with the dish, but server offered to have it prepared with both. What a guy! It was perfect. Only drawback to outside dining is that the shades used to block out the sun need to have hooks on the bottom so they can be secured so as not to hit you in the face while you're eating! Nice meal, very good service!

Thought we would give it a try again because we had children in our group and wanted some place low key. Unfortunately the food was unremarkable. Not good--- not bad, the service was great though. We got orders for a large party pretty quickly and they were helpful when we had an inevitable spill as well as bringing the cake out. We will definitely be back in hopes of finding something on the menu that works. Not the Caesar salad or chicken sandwich...some in our party really liked the fish and chips though.....
