Lunch on Saturday. They have good space in the bar, inside and outside dining areas. The beers are divided up by six house ales and 10 specialty ales. The house ales are available commercially, and the specialties are only available at the brewery. I had the Crazy Ivan and El Oso and my wife had the specialty taster of ten beers. All the beers were good with a few extra delicious. For food we tried a meat and cheese board. You choose the meat and cheese, it was good. The service was fine. Worth a visit on your way through the valley.

I was presented with an impressive flight of samples ranging in style and flavor. I especially enjoyed the light golden ale, Cher Ami but was also a huge fan of the Cafe Racer 15. The sours were interesting and well done especially considering the syrup add option on the spot. The atmosphere and ambiance of this brewery was a healthy mixture of downtown Healdsburg and craft beer attitude. I can't wait to go back.

Favorite: Cher Ami, light golden ale. Had to walk away with a growler of this one.

Stopped in for lunch on Father's Day 2013 and was able to get a table right away, as there was only a wait for patio seating. I thought the lack of a crowd was odd, but afterwards I should have seen it as telling.

I enjoyed their Tartare (berliner weisse), but found the other beer offerings "good to OK" including Racer 5.

Was disappointed w. the food - nothing special at all. Got the pretzel which was loaded w. grains & fiber (not good), mustards were awful. Fish tacos were disappointing & even the garlic fries that seem to be popular were cold & not flavorful.

Service wasn't stellar - more of a check box and move on mentality.

I understand that it's hard to follow Lagunitas and Russian River, but honestly Bear Republic wasn't even close to being in the same league.
