Brewery

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!

Took us about 5 minutes to figure out it was down this gangway if you will, for better choice of words. Great waitress but never caught her name. She did describe the food on the larger portion side which was inaccurate. Most of the food we ordered and observed was overcooked and the place was not very crowded so kitchen shouldn’t have been too busy. She was very pleasant and attentive and that was appreciated. I’d go back for another try though. Husband enjoyed the beer lol. Environment was nice with a large outside patio for seating also.

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.

                                                                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 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.

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 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.
