Great warehouse space; tasting area is set against an open, expansive backdrop of stacked barrels. Decor's great with couches and tables as well as a bar. AND...right around the corner from Berkeley institution Juan's Place. Who WOULDN'T want to follow up some heavy mexican food with a bunch of sour beer!

Visited on a whim while in NorCal. Knowledgeable/corteous staff, delicious range of continually impressive sours, and beautiful space. This is a destination.

Real cool vibe with nice selection of sours on tap to try. Unfortunately no growlers and limited bottles if you're not a member. Also, no food but it's in a nice area.

A great brewery doing strictly sours. Some outside the box stuff, Coffee Sour!? Great Place, I will be visiting here again. Jealous of the Founders members.
