The Fourth Bore is a large restaurant/taproom located inside the Theater Square development in Orinda. They offer 28 taps featuring mostly beers from very nearby, plus wines and an upscale pub menu.
On a winter venting, wicker chairs around a fire freature out in front are enticing. Servers will take your order outside by the fire, in the bar area, and in the separate restaurant space. The bar area embraces the sportsbar concept and offers five TVs. The beer list features local breweries, with few exceptions.
While they do not do half-pours, they do offer tasting flights of three beers.
Extras: The fine old Orinda Theater still shows movies nearby.
