It wasnít that easy to find with the address as it is inside of some sort of a mall. The city seems to be full of wine tasting shops so this is a nice beer oasis. Beers were tasty and the place quite nice. The toilet was very interesting as brokensail mentioned. When we were ready with the beers I wanted to buy a t-shirt. They had my size and thatís it... I was ready to pay. Then the drama began. The waitress tried to get my credit card from the bartender but she couldnít. There was some tension between them. She asked me to try to get my card back... which was a bit weird as she had the t-shirt I wanted to buy. Then the manager came to see whatís wrong. The waitress started to open up how hard it is to work with the guy behind the bar... very awkward... The manager took the shirt and went to the bartender and said something and soon I got my card back and paid. The bartender was very friendly. I donít know the reason for this bizarre episode but I was happy it was over.

Decent selection of beers, many not availible in bottles. Food and atmosphere was nice but $1.50 for a maybe 2oz taster is a bit steep.

Stopped in for a beer and some snacks before dinner at Russian River. Pretty full bar on Thursday afternoon. Sat outside on the patio with a nice view. Tap list includes their usual selections widely available as well as a bunch of brewpub exclusives. Flights available on most beers other than their limited stuff. Food was pretty tasty. Good service.

Nice place in a nice little town. Service was friendly. Prices on beer were good. Got to try some Bear Republic brews that are not available in bottles. Food is alright.

Located just off the town square. Large inviting bar and dinning area. Comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Ate outside on the porch and enjoined people watching and the garden areaÖnot to mention the beer!

We always make this the final stop after RR and Lagunitas, wife loves Healdsburg. Beer is always first rate and the food is good. Large patio is perfect during warm weather. Good crowd of locals and beer enthusist. Definitely Recommended.

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.

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.

Great place in a beautiful part of Healdsburg. Awesome little beer garden out back. Staff are friendly and helpful, and prices are reasonable. Beer quality is pretty consistent, especially the IPAs and barrel aged brews. A must stop when traveling down the 101.

Smaller than what I thought it would be. 10-15 seats at bar and about 20 tables. Odd to see a brewpub in wine country and some of the high end shops there. Quick efficient service. Food came out very quickly. Was there at best 1 hour. Really liked the non bottles stuff from BR. Tartare and the BA barleywine were excellent. Food was a bit average but workable. Really enjoyed it. Get there early on a Saturday or Sunday to avoid the crowd.
