Dansting  (114) Overland Park, Kansas | June 27, 2007
Visited on a Saturday afternoon with my wife. The place was a little hard to find because it isnít located directly on Healdsburg Avenue; itís hidden behind the buildings on that street. Once we got in, we were seated within a couple of minutes as we wanted to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather. The deck was nice, especially because it was amazing weather. The building itself was okay, as the interior was covered with flags, giant labels, and other racing-related decorations. It looked like many sports bars do. We ordered some 75-cent samplers, but they didnít have any of the Racer 5 on nitrogen or blonde available as their menu stated. The beers of Bear Republic are great as always, and I think my favorite at the brewpub was the Red Rocket Ale. The food was good, as I had a burger and garlic fries and my wife had the Roasted Turkey BLT with fries. The garlic fries are a must when visiting here. The service was pretty slow, but our waitress was pleasant at least. The price was reasonable, and I even got a six-pack of the Red Rocket Ale to go (which I didnít think they made available outside of bombers). If you are a big fan of Bear Republic like I am, this is a good place to visit. If you arenít a huge fan, this is definitely still worth stopping at if you are driving in Sonoma County and want some beers and good food.

The restaurant and bar were a bit too loud to be relaxing. Good beer selection and standard food selection. I had one of their burgers, which was pretty good. The service was decent. Iím certain Iíll visit again, when Iím in the area.

Ate here with a bunch of friends visiting Sonoma. Large restaurant and bar. You can peer at the brewing equipment through large windows next to the bar. The place smelled like a brewery; heated grains and hops. The beer was pretty decent and there were 7-8 house beers the night we visited. The group consensus on the food was poor. Service was good, though.

Been here twice now, and enjoyed myself both times. All of the beers they have on tap are usually available in bottle form at my local liquor store, so there are no real surprises in the beer department, although they will occasionally have one or two surprises, such as seasonals. The food is fair to good, the service adequate, although most of the employed are in the 18-20 range and dont have a lot of beer knowledge. If youíre in Healdsburg, you should definitely go.

Decent food. Awesome beers. A decent selection of Bear Republic beers on tap, including Racer 5 on hand pump! Every time Iíve been there thereís always a few groups sitting outside and a few people sitting at the bar, seems to be a popular place. Fairly relaxed, family type atmosphere. My favorite part of the place is that the brewery spills out into the restaurant, with the grain mill over by the fountain drink station connected to the mash tun with a big long pipe run over the entrance to the kitchen on the left hand side of the bar. The smell of fresh hops and mashing grain fills the restaurant when they have a brew going on. They were making Red Rocket when I was there and it smelled awesome in there. The place is worth a stop if youíre in Healdsburg.

After a few pints at Bear Republic, I left with a body high from hops like Iíd never had before. excellent beer. Black Raven Porter, El Oso Lager, and English ESB were all great beers that are otherwise unavailable from the brewery. I plan to return for "Simcoeís Revenge." The food is extremely inconsistent. One day the food was great, with excellend salads ad sandwhiches (green chile aioli is a big winner) A couple of days later, however, the bread tasted day old and the food was prepared differently. "Polenta Mountain" has gone downhill. Where it was once excellent fresh polenta, now it seems to be prepared ahead of time in a mold. Where the polenta itself had a nice flavor, the nuances were ruined by the pre-cooked texture. If they need to pre-cook, they should serve it fried instead. The steamed greens are now asian-inspired stir fry with a cooked cellery flavor that clashes with the heartiness and creaminess of polenta. The whole thing was served in a bowl, swimming in excess water. Dissapointng. The best part of the ambience is watching brewers brew while drinking a pint. The wost part was the teeny-bopper music mix they played on our second day visiting.

We stopped in for luch and ales. The chef/owner came out to greet us. We had several really good ales along with some great gourmet food.Ii had Antelope/wild boar chili, which as a sportmans tasted delicious. The owner even sent over some Fried green tpmatoes for us to try. You gotta go and try this!

Great food, great beer, great brewpub. Not enough on tap though - wish they had a wider selection, Still very good though. Nice patio out back to enjoy the cool northern California weather in this litle touristy town. Good California cuisine. Worth a stop if in the wine country.
