Jay Goodwin and Alex Wallash
Here, co-founders Jay Goodwin and Alex Wallash stand in front of their first barrels. The two men, along with Jay's father, Brad, plan to launch The Rare Barrel's first beers in 2013.
Barrels stacked high
In the near future, the brewers plan to experiment with the use of other barrels. Experimentation is a big theme with these guys—they hope that The Rare Barrel is "going to be a decades long experiment using all the combinations of yeast and bacteria that exist in brewing today and those yet to be discovered."

So, when can you try their stuff? They guys aren't sure, exactly: "When producing sour beer, we are simply barrel shepherds, and the beers will tell us when they are ready. We hope to have some sour beers ready around the end of 2013."
