A sour beer destination, Berkeley’s The Rare Barrel — co-founded by Alex Wallash, Jay Goodwin and Brad Goodwin — operates under the motto “constraint breeds creativity”. Focusing solely on sour beers, they experiment with many combinations, whether aging beer with rose hips and petals or kumquats, orange peel and buddha’s hand citrus. At their Berkeley tasting room, kitchen and production facility, try whatever wonderful creations they are working on at the moment, alongside guest beers, wine, cider and dishes like burrata on toast or confit duck leg and grits.
