Stopped in for a couple rounds. Fairly perfunctory brewpub, typical vibe but a decent range of offerings. Brews were average but mostly game efforts. Decently priced and unpretentious. Worth a stop.

Pretty big brewpub off of Pearl St. Typical ambiance, open and spacious, dimly lit. They had about 10 beers on tap. They range from below average to good. The food and service are average and the prices are fair. Iím sure there are better places to go in Boulder for food and drink.

Brewpub #4 on the Boulder tour. My first thought upon sitting at the bar was "this is a Rock Bottom". And, I was sort of right. The beers were about at or below typical Rock Bottom quality as well. The bartender was at least nice and talked with us for awhile. Huge location. Seems to be popular with the older crowd, probably from when it was one of the only options in town.

Visited November 2012.
Large interior with a long bar and lots of tables. Was surprisingly busy on a week night. I initially wanted to get an appetizer but when I saw how packed it was I figured the wait wouldnít be worth it and instead just got a flight of all 10 house beers. The beers werenít too bad but not overly impressive either. The best beers there were the GFYIPA and the rye porter. I donít see the IPA anywhere in the database here by name so Iím guessing itís a renamed version of another one thatís listed. Actually, now that I look closer I see that this place is affiliated with Rock Bottom. Not sure why it gets itís own beer listing but what ever. The bartender was very nice and even made some suggestions of other places in town. She mentioned Reubenís and West Flanders Brewing (formerly BJís). Not a bad place but it is a bit noisy and popular so if you want to be in a quiet room somewhere by yourself to rate all your beers then this isnít the place for you.

Dark and dingy interior a block away from Pearl street. Service was OK, although the bartenders are never really friendly. Food is decent, but the beer is pretty terrible. Stop in for some ticks if you are nearby, but not worth seeking out. There are much better places to be had in Boulder.

Big, open restaurant, long bar, big televisions with no sound, useless for all but sports. Always nice to be able to see brewing process. Eight or nine taps, some seasonals that rotate. Overall the beer is decent, the cask conditioned beers are generally better. Most of the beer is decent but quite mild. Service has always been very friendly but knowledge of beer varies widely depending on who you speak with. A solid place to grab a pint.

Great place taste everything from Walnut brewery, and have some tasty food while you are at it. The selection mostly consist of the breweryís own products, so you can quickly sample it all. Atmosphere is nice and service is good. Plenty of seats, you donít have to worry about seating. Overall, nice place, worth checking out.

Walnut brewery is your typical big, high cieling, boisterous colorado brewpub, which not is not a bad thing, in spite of it being only typical. I like the ambiance on the inside and that of boulder, but I donít know who controls the music, because sometimes its good classic rock beer drinking music but other times I was in there it was top40, terrible. Like people are saying the majority of the selection is pretty standard fare, although one thing I will say is every time I go there there are some new things available, so thats good. Some of the beers I thought were decent, others not so much. Food is actually pretty good here, definitely better than most brewpubs, so I donít know what some people are talking about. Value is ok, its not too pricey but you are in boulder. Overall not a bad destination, you wonít be blown away but youíll be satisfied.

The Walnut bar is at one end of the tourist area. It is a decent looking place, and larger than the average bar, and one can come here and talk beer, and sit or stand at a decent sized bar. A little loud for music at 315 pm. The beer selection and quality is a bit poorer than the regular Rock Bottom brewpubs. They have to pick it up here to stay competitive to craft beer consumers. If you want a light session beer,as opposed to some inetresting imperial stout, this is the place to come. If you have the time, pop in.
