Cloverdale, CA

Est. 1995

Bear Republic Brewing Company was founded in 1995. Our original brewery, located just off the downtown square in Healdsburg, California, is where we created and sometimes stumbled upon some of our favorite beer recipes. Ricardo’s Red Rocket Ale, Racer 5 IPA, and many others began in that very brewhouse.

After 11 years of rapid growth, we opened our Factory 5 brewery in Cloverdale, California, where we brew and package all our beer that goes to market. We hand select our ingredients for each batch, the grains and hops we use are chosen for their unique characteristics, and the recipes and formulations are patiently developed over time. Many recipes start as a home-brew and then develop into the commercial beer available in many retail outlets today. We pride ourselves in using our established methods while always looking to improve efficiencies and techniques to provide quality beer to share with the world. 

We are driven to bring you fresh, never-filtered, hand-crafted beer.  

Our beers are like family to us. We take great pride in being known as one of the best IPA producers in the world. We’ve been brewing one of the original West Coast IPAs, Racer 5, for almost two decades.

The most important part of Bear Republic is the people. We have a diverse group that shows up every day to help produce, package, and serve our beer. So if you find yourself visiting Sonoma County, stop by for a pint at our current brewpub, Lakeside, in Rohnert Park, California.
