I'm visiting Bear Republic in Healdsburg, CA this weekend and I was curious if there were any must haves besides Racer 5 and Hop Rocket? I love both of those brews, and have them all the time. Just want to make sure I don't miss anything good while I'm up there!

Hop Rod Rye is great. One of my favorites, on tap especially.

Hop Rod Rye, yes. My Bent Rod Rye is based on it, but about 2/3rds the ABV to make it a hoppy session ale.

Pete Brown Tribute Ale, possibly my favorite brown ale ever. And another vote for the Black Bear Stout.

They usually have a few nice specialty sour beers as well if your into that sort if thing. Last time I was there I had what they called a "wangdoidle" it was a lambic aged with prickly pears...great beer plus you've got to dig the Willy Wanka reference
