Burial Beer S-T-A-Y-Gold IPA-can

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.

The Veil Brewing Human Adult debuts Tuesday, brewed with Trillium

The Veil Brewing Human Adult.

The Veil Brewing Human Adult debuts on September 26th.

This beer is the latest in a series of collaborations with Boston, Massachusetts based Trillium Brewing Company. A few months ago, the group brewed Adult Human at Trillium. That release was an imperial IPA brewed 100% with Citra hops and blood orange puree.

The Veil Brewing Human Adult has been created in the same vein – that is with the same malt and yeast profile, but with a few changes. Vic Secret hops were tagged in for Citra, and Guava puree instead of blood orange juice. As The Veil puts it – “The same, but different”.

The Veil Brewing Human Adult will be available at the brewery in Richmond, Virginia on Tuesday, September 26th.

Style: Imperial IPA (w/ Guava Puree)
Hops: Vic Secret
Availability: 16oz Cans

Debut: 9/26/17
