A large space with a relatively small 7 seat bar, but lots of tables serves a dozen Rare Barrel taps including a couple of wines and an additional 16 guest taps.

Its a cool place and can also be cool in a way that its a good idea to have a jacket. Not because it is refrigerated; they chose Berkeley for its temperature range and seldom need to adjust the temperature for the barrel aging. Bottles are for sale and there was a membership pickup happening with a ton of boxed bottles being picked up while I was there. Foeders and barrels are all around the tasting area.
A Kitchen featuring experimental small plates with strong flavors was appreciated by the foodies in my group. There was a single projection television. As far as seating goes, there are about ten tables some couches and several chairs providing decent indoor seating options for this really large warehouse space.
The Rare Barrel is included in the Craft Beer Spots series, “Sour Spots” and is available in multiple rarities– common (500), uncommon (250), rare (50), and ultra-rare (5). To learn more about NFTs, and those from Craft Beer Spots, in particular, click here.
