Big place with lots of glass cabinets hocking their stuff. Lots of tap only beers available and a good priced sampler. Visited here the morning after my drunken San Francisco experience, hungover but the sampler helped me wake up. Nice folks and nice place. Smelled like brew day.

After at least a half dozen trips to Santa Rosa and Russian River, I finally just made it a point to come here. Surprisingly small brewpub for a brewery that has their beer all over the place in bottles. I guess they do have an outside area that not many seemed to be using. They had about 18 taps on with the regulars and a pretty good number of draft only/brewpub only beers. Service was chipper and quick. They do samples of everything and theyíre pretty cheap, too. Everyone seemed to just be hanging out and having a good time in the rather quiet town of Healdsburg.

Perhaps the most memorable thing about this place was the menís room. Itís about the size of your typical single occupancy restroom, but the arrangement of the facilities is interesting to say the least. They have a few urinals on one of the walls (no dividers, but not really a big deal) and opposite that are the sink...and a toilet. I mention this because the toilet is just there. Itís not in a stall nor does it have any sort of barrier. I guess itís cool if you like have an unobstructed view of people taking a leak and washing their hands while you drop a deuce, though. Shitter rating: 2/5.

Worthy of place rating #700.

Average but lively pub environment. Didnít eat here. Pretty long beer list has nothing too extraordinary but the standards (RacerX, etc) are solid and some of the specials are too. Like Tartare, the Berliner weiss. Iíd go back for sure.

Braudog  (721) Hampton, Virginia | April 13, 2008
April 2008 - Early afternoon, mostly a bar crowd, enjoying the awesome BRBC beers, just as we did. It goes without saying, but the beers here are world class. They alone are worth the visit. Unfortunately, we didnít try any of their food. We had a good time talking with Ryan the bartender, too. Cool guy, cool joint, amidst the wine-tourist-oriented Healdsburg. (Brewery #457, 4/10/2008)

Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | July 7, 2009
A surprisingly not very pretty pub in the pretty town center of Healdsburg. Bear Republic is on an alley by Healdsburg avenue and has a weird terrace on the back where lighting remains subtle in the evening and huge metal fermentors force the waiters to dance around to reach their customers. Still, we had good service and were quite impressed by the beer selection. There were 16 of their beers on draught including a whole lot of stuff that does not go into the bottles. Since itís a talented brewery, you may very easily fall onto interesting discoveries, but I would avoid Belgian styles which tend to be overly sweet. A satisfying experience for people who dig the brewery, but not quite essential in this area where so many breweries reside.

Here I am at this must visit place. The bartender is John and we are talking beer. He is giving me style and another style. Is it the style? I had a great pale, and an unusual sour beer, among others. A large square bar, many tables, tempting merchandise. Great service, not to busy on a cold Monday night. Parking down the street. A beautiful and very safe town.

I was very excited to finally come to Healdsburg and try the great BRepublic creations straight from the source. The Racer 5 I started with was as good as the bottles Iíve been enjoying now and then over the last 5-6 years or so, but the house "specials" were another story altogether. A wet mop aroma seemed to mar all three, whatever style they were. Cleaning issues in the brewpub? Anyway, the location in pretty Healdsburg is nice and the terrace out back is friendly, so I would like to come back eventually. I admit I would stray from the "new" brewpub-only brews next time since I was burned this time around. Hop Rod Rye and Racer 5 (amongst others) still rule.

Big indoor space with a separate bar and dining area. A lovely shaded patio out back which is where I enjoyed a few with a nice burger and salad. Friendly and knowledgeable staff along with a great selection of their usual bottled selection and some newer stuff. A damn fine place to quaff a few brews.

Great lively place with tons of locals and friendly bartenders to keep you entertained. The staff not only know there stuff, attempt to humor and get to know you. I had a great time and they had 15+ beers on tap. Food was OK, nothing special and during happy hours the prices are down right cheap.
