Farm Creek Brewing Company Closing Sept 23rd in Walnut Creek

Thanks to everyone for sending word. Sad news especially considering their grand reopening was just last month but glad they can spend more time with their family in the south.

From an email:

From the beginning, Farm Creek Brewing has always been about family. And community. We’re proud to be part of an amazing community of supporters and friends. But, we’re missing out on time with our families back home in the south. We can always make more beer, but we can’t make more time.

Heather and I have decided that it’s time for us to create the next chapter of the Farm Creek story.

We will be closing the taproom and brewery in Walnut Creek, California and relocating Farm Creek. The Janinda’s are going home.

The taproom will be open during normal business hours until September 23. We’ll begin disassembling the brewery and taproom shortly after that.

This past year has been an adventure for us and we’re glad we could share it with you. Now, come by the taproom and share another beer with us. And be ready to come visit us on the east coast soon!


Progress on Auburn Lounge & Wine Bar in Danville

321 Hartz Ave, Danville

Back in April we learned that Auburn Winery Tasting Room would be turning into Auburn Lounge Wine Bar and it’s getting a lot closer to opening. As you can see the signage is up and their Facebook page is being actively updated so check out their progress here. One reply there notes that they will still be offering live music, “Tapping into the 1930’s style music: Ella, Duke, Count”.


Preview of Impulse Room in Downtown Walnut Creek

1501 N. Broadway, Walnut Creek

Impulse Room, a new jazz club that we learned would be coming to downtown Walnut Creek is finally getting ready to open officially next Wednesday on April 26th (Groove Dragon) and is hosting a couple of Facebook-invite parties this Thursday (Sophisticated Ladies ) and Friday (Negative Press Project). If interested in attending one of these events go to their Facebook page here and reply to their post from April 15th with the details.

The inside features a wine and beer bar towards the front with a piano and performance area on the other side. On Dance Saturdays the floor will be open for dancing to jazz, as well as “upbeat blues, Swing, and modern jazz”. Wednesdays, Thursday and Fridays will feature live jazz inspired music. There is a complimentary buffet from 5:30 to 7pm. To find out all the details including the dress code and cover charge etc. check out their About page here.

This looks like it’s going to be a great addition to the downtown Walnut Creek nightlife scene. I look forward to listening to live jazz music here soon! Don’t forget to check out more photos after the jump.
