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.

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.

As the guy next to me said, "All the beers taste the same, theyíre just a different color." Yuppie restaurant kinda place.

Typical brewpub outfit with twelve house beers on tap, two of which were cask versions. The service was lacking considering they were slow; I stopped by before dinner. Most of the beers were standerd brewpub brews, but a couple were better than average.

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.

Great venue. Large, but pub like. Great sampler. Great hummus. Very talkative and informative server. Something of a local. They comped the parking lot across the street.

Went here for dinner and beers. Big place with a kind of chain restaurant feel. Good service. Beer was ok, all kind of bland but nothing offensive. The food was excellent, way better than expected. Overall I would recommend the food but the beer wasnít anything to get excited about.

As other reviewers said, typical chain ambiance, but with a trendy crowd. A client took me here for lunch. I tried the sampler, and most of the beers were average, but drinkable. 1 stood out from the batch. The food was good, but nothing worth going back for. Too bad Oasis is gone, their beer was much better.
