Bear Republic Brewing Company started as a company of four in 1995 and twenty years later has grown to a company with over 150 employees at two locations. The family owned business is now the 39th largest brewery in the United States.

“We are excited to be celebrating twenty years. It is with the support of our community, family and friends that we have been able to live our dream all these years,” said owner Richard Norgrove on his website.

The community is invited to join the Bear Republic team at tonight’s 20th Anniversary Celebration. The celebration will take place at the brewpub, located at 345 Healdsburg Ave. in Healdsburg between 7pm and 10pm.

Price of admission is $20 and includes a twenty year commemorative glass, five beer tickets and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets will be sold at the door while supplies last.
