I keep feeling like the newest Trappist outpost is pulling a total Prince on me by naming their joint with a symbol I can't get my computer to produce. Luckily, there's copy and paste, and I can properly tell you that ØL Beercafe & Bottle Shop will be open for business in Walnut Creek this Friday, September 16, from 4pm–close.
They'll have 18 taps and hundreds of bottles, with a focus on beers not easily found at nearby BevMo or Whole Foods. Over on their site they've got their opening tap list up, which includes local beers such as Ale Industries Rye'd Piper and Linden Street Black, as well as more obscure offerings, ranging from the smoky Bavarian Aecht Schlenkerla Helles to Glazen Toren Angelique Dubbel, a spicy Belgian ale. According to their facebook page, the interior design will feature re-finished pews, tables and benches from Heritage Salvage, and gorgeous herringbone ceiling from Level 5 Designs.
