Tanks are gone, restraunt is cleared out, tables are gone, lights are out. Web page says they are still brewing so maybe they went the contract route with Pyramid in Berkeley since they have tons of unused capacity they are dying to farm out. They say a tasting room is in the works but don't say where.

Decor is a bit plain, needs to be more welcoming, especially when entering. Beer is very good and needs no improvement, more selection? maybe. Service is friendly and polite, and everyone seems to make an effort to please. Food is good, not outstanding but good. Portions are a good size and everything is fresh and tasty. Yes parking could be better but BART parking is close by, make the effort and walk a couple of blocks why don't you.

The pizza was very good and seamed to be the food of choice for all of the table around us. The Weizen was good with lots of yeast floating about. The Hand Pulled (Cask Condition) IPA was nice and hoppy.

They Finally did something about the parking!!! They just opened another lot behing the place. Still get's too loud for conversation after the band starts up when there is one. If you want conversation, come early. Waitresses are very pleasing to the eye. Beers are pretty standard, nice smoth Irish stout on tap last time in. No complaints

The only difference in their beers is the color--they all tasted the same. They advertised an "authentic" Bavarian Weizen, and it was a plain American wheat beer. Service was horrible, on a weeknight with a small crowd. Don't even waste the time going here.

Parking is a an ongoing problem if you visit during ANY peak hours, but that's always been a problem in Walnut Creek (at least it's not as bad a SF). The 6 Beer sampler tray is great if you have a hard time deciding or just want to try several of their beers. They brew many things seasonally only as would be expected, and have many favorites but usually have a new beer or 2 out until gone. If you want service, take a seat at a table, "Bars" are just that, and when a place is busy, they tend to be cranking out the service for the waiters & waitresses that are serving those that are eating, drinking and tipping. Food is plentiful, always great, both unusual w/ some tradtional items (they have Bangers, Fish & Chips w/ malt vinegar)& many wonderful "California Cuisine" type dishes. There are "Veggie" and "Meat Eater" meals to satisfy everyone...As far as the "BUD" clansmen, best for you to stay away as you stated, and quit taking up space, as you must have been an abused child or dropped on your head, if you think BUD's in the running with our fine local Micro Brewries,& those others throughout the States.

For a while, the only choice for a cold one in the Concord/Walnut Creek/Pleasant Hill area. Nothing to rave about, but alright if you're in the neighborhood...//TSB

True parking can be a pain at times but their beer is really good. Try the cask IPA and the Amber. They now have a new brewer so I don't know if he will brew the Scottish ale but their seasonal Scottish ale is one of the best I have ever tried. Their beer selection sucks though. They offer an Irish style stout almost all the time. They need to rotate their dark beers to increase variety. The former brewer had some great brewer's specials. As far as the food goes, their pizza is great. They also have some beautiful waitresses so you'll never get bored drinking a brew. The people who knocked on this place don't know anything about real beer. Budweiser better than this beer? Please!!!

Parking is limited. I'm fortunate that I can leave my car at work two blocks away. It is a great place for lunch. I always find the specials very good. Also the IPA is my favorite selection.

Walnut Dump has the worst beer in the USA. You are better off going to the Bud brewery.

I feel that I must re-review this place, since I go here so much. (live just a mile away...) First of all I would like to reaffirm my love of their cask conditioned IPA and other specials. I'd like to see a little more refinement in their stock brews though. Also, the cider is great, and a good alternative for those that you drag along who aren't quite at the same level of beer-hounding as you. I love the food here, just because it's not too pretentious (like the Faultline Brewery on Locust St.) Music is usually pretty good on Friday and Saturday nights. Service could definitley be better, we often find ourselves waiting forever just to put in an order for drinks. Best thing to do in this case is forego the table seating and head for the bar. Overall a great place though.

Parking is terrible in the Bay Area but this place was the worst. A bartender that wouldn't pay attention to her customers really turned me off to this place. They did have 22 oz bottles to go though which is a plus for me. They don't have the traditional pint glasses for sale though another problem I encountered in the Bay Area. Faultline was better.

Black Diamond has a cask conditioned IPA that just RULES! I always love it when they have that one on tap. I usually just order the appetizers which are decent. The hard cider is sweet and tasty, and a nice backup for those guests that have lesser appreciations for hops in their palates.
