This cozy beer place is located on a side street in downtown Walnut Creek. There is a nice bar in the back with a few stools facing a wall of 18 taps dispensing good beers, including Belgian, American craft and local beers. There are several tables near the front door, but all service is at the bar. There is a also a fairly extensive bottle shop with some good finds. Check it out - its worth the drive.

Incredible spot with great beers on tap, knowledgeable staff and bottles to go. Not cheap, but what do you expect for downtown WC.

A great place for beer geeks and beer newbies alike. Staff is super friendly and and they definitely know a thing or two and will help you find something you will enjoy. Best of all, they are really passionate about the beer, so you know theyre not just feeding you some crap to sell you something they dont like. The bottle selection is extensive and spans everything from IPA to lambic. Atmosphere is cozy and comfortable, a great place to meet up with friends and chat. Definitely worth checking out even if you dont live in Walnut Creek.

Very interesting bar/bottle shop in Walnut Creek. Very good taplist, and they do tasting flights - four 4 oz pours for $16. Not cheap, but its a good way to try some interesting beers. The bottle shop portion is small but dense. The bottles all have two prices; one for drink there and one for carry home. The take out prices are good, not great, and the selection is pretty interesting, with a lot of good beers but few whales. They did have three Cantillons on the shelves when I was there, including about 10 bottles of Mamouche, but they are priced very high ($70 for Mamouche) and have no reduction for carry out. All in all a pretty good place.

Great place to drink great beer. They have 18 beers on tap that change periodically and Litetally hundreds of beers to sample in bottles, some on the shelf and some in the fridge. The bartenders are very friendly and knowledgable about beer. The customers who go there are also very friendly. You have to go!

L is clearly one for the best beer bars in California if not the US. This place stands far ahead of most everything, exceptional selection and quality draft and bottles. Small but so is Walnut Creek. The bartenders know their shit. Nice clean comfortable place too.

Interesting beers on tap, a knowledgeable guy behind the bar, beer enthusiasts sharing stories, and a wonderful selection of bottles and glassware. What a find!
