Founded in 1995 and taking its name from California’s state flag, the Bear Republic Brewing Company
has skyrocketed from a small brewpub to one of the top 40 brewers in the United States over the last two decades. This month, the company, recently named small business of the year for Northern California by the U.S. Small Business Administration, celebrates its 20th anniversary with a blowout party. Bear Republic’s award-winning lineup of beers will be flowing from the taps, and you’ll get to taste them all in your commemorative pint glass. The anniversary party starts pouring on Monday, Feb. 29, at Bear Republic Brewing Company, 345 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg. 7pm. $20. 707.433.2337.
