The Rare Barrel Commences Fermentation

In case you haven't heard, sour is the new bitter. An increasing amount of shelf real estate is populated with puckering tart beers, a number of which are produced in the Bay Area. Roughly a year after the announcement of The Rare Barrel, Berkeley's all-sour, all-barrel aged brewery, the facility is up and running. The good news? Batch #1 is in the bag. The bad news? You won't get to try it until 2016.
