Farm Creek Brewing closing and relocating

Tonight Farm Creek Brewing Co. in Walnut Creek rang “last call” and closed it’s doors to the public for the last time.

On Sept. 11th Farm Creek announced the closing:

Farm Creek Friends,

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!


Randy and Heather

Farm Creek had recently marked it first anniversary. In the year that it was open, the Janindas had turned Farm Creek into a beloved local institution, the epitome of a small, independent, hard-working and all-hands-on-deck family-owned brewery.

It is fair to say that, though we all wish them well as they relocate to Georgia, they shall be missed.

    Randy and Heather,

    I’ve been on the road much of the last 6 weeks and missed all of this change. Was at The Counter in WC last night, ordered your FC Strong Ale, and learned not only that they were out, but that it wouldn’t be replenished, and that you had closed. That was like ‘three strikes’, I felt very “out”.

    I understand the family connection, and we’ll miss you. Good luck in your Georgia pursuits. In my travels I’ve been flying to RDU and through ATL, and have become familiar with Sweetwater 420 APA, so I know you’ll have good company there . Best of luck,
