Commercial description:

Sir Isaac Newton once wrote, “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” This quote has always struck a chord with us, as we have heaps of respect for those who paved the way for the craft beer we all enjoy today. In our first edition of this series, we collaborated with one of our personal “giants”, Pete Slosberg of Pete’s Wicked Ales, to blend this dark sour beer with sour cherries.

The Rare Barrel is located at 940 Parker St in Berkeley, CA.
