Asheville-based Burial Beer Co. is ready to expand 245 miles outside their hometown this winter to Raleigh, North Carolina.
The brewery has selected a decaying century old coach house structure attached to the Transfer Co. Food Hall in downtown Raleigh. Burial describes the new location as an “art-filled catacomb” highlighting the work of illustrator, David Paul Seymour. The space offer taproom only offerings, and can releases.
“Our space in Asheville really connects people to our vision and brand. The new location will give people in the Eastern part of NC the chance to make that connection as well.” – Tim Gormley, co-owner and Head Brewer.
The Burial Raleigh location is slated to open in late 2018/early 2019 and will be open Thursdays and Fridays from 2-9PM and Saturdays from 12-6PM.
Burial Skillet Donut Stout cans return at the start of June for the last time in 2018.
Burial Skillet Donut Stout is an oatmeal stout and is brewed with molasses, milk sugar, and a 50/50 blend of Big Trouble and Hologram Counter Culture Coffee. This fan favorite is big on coffee with just a tiny hint of milk chocolate, finishing silky smooth. Breakfast beer? Dessert beer? That’s up to you. We’ve turned it into a pool beer when it comes back in the summer time.
Cold black iron. Never decaying, it is held to the fire to unearth impeccable flavor from whatever it holds. Never biased, it welcomes all ingredients. The Skillet is our most trusted and daring tool of culinary ingenuity. It is the perfect barrier-carrier for this rich, black ale. This breakfast stout is made from a blend of nine barley malts, a healthy scoop of oats, milk and molasses sugars, and our favorite blend of freshly roasted Counter Culture Coffee beans. Welcome the day with rich cocoa, smooth caramel, dark fruits, and an abundance of diverse coffee aroma unlike no other. Drink your breakfast.
Burial Skillet Donut Stout 16-ounce cans and draft will return to the taproom and distribution starting the week of June 1st. This is the last time you can buy Skillet in cans in 2018.

Burial The Veil Behind the Curtain debuts today marking the first day of spring.
The decay of Winter’s final demise has fallen, says Asheville’s Burial Beer. Today marks the first day of spring, and with it comes this fermented tribute. The brewery’s Keeper’s Veil Honey Saison has been aged in wood and refermented with a flower blend of chamomile, hibiscus, passionflower, elderflower, and lavender.
The beer is vibrantly botanical with notes of cranberry, lemon zest and rhubarb, and a quaffable acidity.
Each bottle is hand-dipped in beeswax and rolled in a blend of flowers. Limited to the brewery starting March 20th at a special brewery event. No distribution.
If this is Burial Beer Co.’s idea of what the rivers in hell taste like, count us in.
The Asheville, North Carolina based brewery’s Solera program has yielded another release, and it indeed runs deep red. Burial The River to Hell Runs Red is Oud Bruin ale (Flanders Brown Ale) that spent 6 months in Brunello foeders, only to be re-fermented in Sanctuary Vineyards Tempranillo barrels for 9 months. Hold on, not done. 75% of this sour ale was aged on raspberries, while the remaining 25% on blueberries.
The release is truly a dark, brooding, sour ale. As it warms the depth of this beer is revealed – a wash of bold Spanish black grapes and a subtle hint of dry Italian wine barrel, finishing with just the tiniest hint of vinegar and raspberry. Fans of sours like The Bruery Tart of Darkness or Jolly Pumpkin Noel De Calabaza will find a new love in hell here.
Burial The River to Hell Runs Red is a brewery only release, in 16.9-ounce bottles.

Burial Stay G-O-L-D IPA inspired by the hip-hop group Run the Jewels returns again in October.
Asheville, North Carolina’s Burial Beer and Brooklyn’s Interboro Spirits & Ales teamed up earlier this year with hip-hop group Run the Jewels for a special hoppy release. Stay G-O-L-D IPA is the result.
Run the Jewels was founded in 2013 by rappers El-P and Killer Mike. Besides his hot rhymes, Killer Mike has a love of beer. A few years ago he flew to Chicago to do a special collaboration with Goose Island. (We actually visited him at his barber shop in Georgia.)
Burial Beer Stay G-O-L-D IPA is brewed with the help of Brooklyn, New York’s Interboro Spirits & Ale. Named for a track on the groups latest “Run the Jewels 3” release, Stay G-O-L-D is juicy India pale ale brewed with Citra and Mosaic hops.
Aromas of dank pineapple lemon honeydew. Tangy citrus piney flavors with clean bitter finish. – Interboro Spirits & Ales
Stay G-O-L-D IPA will be available at the brewery in Asheville, North Carolina again on October 11th at 5pm – just before Run the Jewels plays their sold out show downtown. Just like before, no distribution.
Availability: 16oz Cans.
