Rohnert Park Brewpub
In keeping with the tradition of honest ales and family values, Bear Republic Brewing Company®, its employees and the Norgrove Family are excited to announce that after twenty years, Bear Republic will be opening the company’s third brewery operation in the City of Rohnert Park, California.
“Bear Republic looks forward to developing a positive relationship with the Chamber of Commerce, the City Fathers, the local business community and the citizens of Rohnert Park,” said Bear Republic Brewing Company® President & CEO Richard Norgrove.
The brewery and brewpub operation is currently in the planning stages and will commence with the construction phase at 5000 Roberts Rd, formerly the site of Latitude Restaurant. No opening date is available as of this writing.
“Rohnert Park is thrilled to have Bear Republic coming to town,” said Rohnert Park City Council Member Amy Ahanotu. He added, “A brewery of their quality is exactly what we’ve been looking for to expand the dining and entertainment choices for our residents and visitors.”
The original Healdsburg brewpub, which first opened in 1996, will be remodeled once the Rohnert Park location has been established. What started as a company of the four owners in 1995 has expanded into Bear Republic’s two current locations with over 150 employees. Originally operating on a small brewpub system in downtown Healdsburg, California, Bear Republic has expanded over the last twenty years, with their Cloverdale production brewery established in 2006 just 15 miles North of the original Healdsburg facility, and has become the 39th largest brewery in the United States.
The Norgrove family has been a part of Sonoma County for five generations and is very excited to be coming to Rohnert Park.
