The Rare Barrel Tasting Room & Kitchen is located inside of our production facility and barrel house at 940 Parker Street, Berkeley, CA 94710. With a full view of our barrel house, you can enjoy a sour beer or two while overlooking a sea of barrels. The temperature of the Tasting Room & Kitchen is set at "barrel aging temperature", so dress warm if it's chilly outside. The entrance is tucked away at the end of a very long parking lot.  

By Car

You are welcome to park your car in any of the 21 marked parking spots in our parking lot. If the parking lot is full, there is usually ample street parking. 

By Bike

Feel free to ride your bike and lock it to our bike racks just outside of our entrance. 


Take BART and exit at the Ashby station. The Ashby BART stop is 2 miles from us. One option is to take the West Berkeley Shuttle, which runs until 7PM (schedule). Another option is to take the 49 bus ($2.10 exact fare or Clipper Card), which can be found at the corner of Ashby and Martin Luther King Jr. Way. This is also a nice walk during the day, but we dont recommend walking during the night because the route is poorly lit. These directions are a courtsey of friends over at Beer By Bart
