Stopped by for an early lunch with some friends who live in town, so,,,,not a problem finding it, Second time there, first time eating, Park in the back and walk towards the little mall. We were the first ones to sit on the deck, and the staff was very accomodating. The server was quickly there and ran through the tap list and the food specials, answering all of our questions. Food was good for a brewery, and the beer was excellent. Had the portabella sandwich with the garlic fries, very tasty, but, again, it is all about the beer.

A solid little brewpub that unfortunately paled in comparison to Russian River which we had visited just before. Place was nearly impossible to find, tucked back behind a couple other buildings. When we got in there it was packed (It was Valentines Day) so we actually just stood near the bar area and ordered our sampler tray. The beers were mediocre to great, but many of the better ones I had already had in bottled form many times. The atmosphere was typical of a brewpub, but lost some points for it being so packed and rowdy. The bartenders did their best, but it was a losing situation. Would like to visit again when itís less busy.

Nice place. Hard to find (itís back off the main street). Typical brewpub atmosphere. Lots of great beer on tap. Big samplers available and sometimes you get freebies. Food is reasonable. You can also buy bottles of their stuff on the premises.

Healdsburg as a beautiful place and Bear republic fits right in with the atmosphere. A little hard to find in the back of some shops off of the main drag. I was blown away by there selection. Having had most of their bottled beers I was mostly interested in any special versions or tap only beers; well, they delivered in spades. There were probably a half dozen beers that they donít bottle, plus a half dozen more special barrel aged or extra-hopped versions of their normal beers. I didnít even know where to start. Happy hour prices were great and the bartender was very friendly. Definitely a recommended spot. Their hoppy beers are world class, and some of their experimental stuff is legit, though not all of it hits the mark even if it is interesting.

Just excellent. Food was really good. Beer selection and flavors were outstanding. A bit crowded Saturday night on a holiday weekend. But the staff kept in touch, and all went well.

the weirdest experience of my northern CA beer hunt. A good brewpub in wine country. No the experience was shaky but the beer was good and the selection amazing.

Fantastic beer here! A hop headís delight with several IPAs and double IPAs on tap at all times. They even have a hopped up version of their Red Rocket. The burger I ordered was tasty and delicious, and the garlic fries were fantastic. Everyone at our table was raving over the food - maybe because weíd biked all over the vineyards that day. Busy and bustling on a Friday night, and because it was my birthday I got a free pint! Somewhat disapointed that they had no sampler platter - rather you build your own for $1.25/sample. They should take note of their competition down the road at Russian River where you can get every beer on tap for a reasonable price. To sample all 15 beers here would have been a big cost - instead my fellow diners ordered several beers and I filled in the gaps with the taste samplers. Love the bike gear hanging all over the place - they really need to make a t-shirt with their make beer not bombs tag line.
