Brewery
We are a family-owned brewery, located in the heart of Sonoma County, California. Why did we decide to craft beers among the grapevines of California’s world-famous Wine Country? Simple. This is where we are from. Founded by 3rd and 4th generation Sonoma County residents, we are family-owned and team-oriented. From brewer to bottler, everyone that works (and plays) together at Bear Republic is dedicated to bringing you fresh, never-filtered craft beer.

The Norgrove family invites you to come by for hearty, healthy food and our award winning ales. Our beers pair nicely with every entrée and are often used as an ingredient.

We dined at Bear Republic Brewing Co. for lunch and were delighted to find such a nice place to go in our neighborhood. There was attention to detail with the layout of the place catering to all ages you could sit at one of the high tables or in a booth type setting. I enjoyed a creamy casserole with chicken, roasted peppers and zucini . I don't usually order chicken but noticed that it was Rocky brand and that told me that attention was paid to ingredients. Our wait person was helpful and friendly and we had the pleasure of talking to the general manager. This restaurant is at the top of our list for places to dine.

The food and drinks were amazing! I wish the service could have made our first visit more pleasant. Reminder to waiters: check on your tables! Clear their messy/done plates, and make sure their drinks are filled!!!!

The beer and appetizers were fantastic, however our entree's were not good. 3 of us thought cole slaw was awful, no taste, pizza was bland. This is a place to go for beer and appetizers. Service was excellent, sadly the food was not.

A good brew pub with some really great beers. Food is OK, but menu could offer more of the traditional pub foods along with the nice selection of hamburgers and salads. Inside gets noisy, so outside patio is best when the weather is right.

We had a great time here for Sonoma County Restaurant week. Between us, we tried to cover all the options, in order to provide a review for the website. The only real complaint, and this wasn't something the restaurant could have anticipated, was that the large group of people behind us were phenomenally noisy, as if they were talking over live music. It was even difficult to hear our server. But the food is great!

Go for their beer, not their food. Crappy burger and fries.
Service was very slow as well.
Apparently they have a dog friendly patio so that would be nice in the warmer months.

The burgers were delicious & cooked according to order. Beers were great and a wide variety to select from...enough choices to satisfy a wide range of tastes!

The food was good but the service a bit brusque. We wanted to taste a flight of beers but many were out and our waitress would not take a moment to let my son explain what he wanted she just told him what he could have and then made some substitutions without asking. Since he is our beer connoisseur, I found that annoying. We had been dying to try out the ones he cannot get in Oregon but the experience put me off. It is VERY noisy and we were there on a slow night. I think I will return to eat lunch outside on the patio rather than dinner inside. Great burger but Mac and cheese was sort of bland even with bacon.

We ate outside, thinking it would be quieter, and were assured that the heaters would be on. Part way through our meal they went off (timer, we were told) and we were freezing! Not good.

I have been there 3 times. Sausage pizza was great. Fish & Chips delicious but cole slaw was overpowered with dressing and bitter tasting. The menu offered salad greens that were not to my liking. Service was very good and ambience nice. If a beer drinker, I may have enjoyed it more and would recommend to friends for that. Nice to have another restaurant to go to that is in the area and will continue to try other items on the menu.

We made a reservation for eight people and then showed up with 12 people and they cheerfully accommodated us! We tried two different types of beer flights and all of the beer is excellent. The food was plentiful and not overpriced. This place is going to get extremely popular!

Food was good, staff was friendly. They made a lot of mistakes and forgot our drinks.
But it is a new restaurant. And the outside area sitting Lake view made up for it

Restaurant just opened, so a few speed bumps in service but nothing unacceptable. Food was great and looking forward to being on the patio next time to enjoy Roberts Lake view. Very noisy but expected for the type of restaurant/microbrewery it is.

Huge kitchen but not much to choose from on menu.
