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 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.

This release is actually the second of three installations in an on-going collaboration with Blackberry Farm. The base beer is a saison brewed with North Carolina barley and spelt, Saphir hops, and fermented on a mix of Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus bacteria.
Secrets are hard to keep and jealousy has no bounds. Part 2 of the story told with our good friends at Blackberry Farm Brewery is a mixed-culture saison make with NC barley and spelt, hopped with Saphir hops and aged with Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus.
Burial Beer Jealousy & Murder is available at the brewery starting September 30th. Limited distribution to follow.
Style: American Wild Ale
Availability: 750ml Bottles
This collaborator series has paired seen the likes of Deschutes Brewery, Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project, Firestone Walker, Cigar City, Ommegang, and Orval. Boulevard Collaboration 7 is the first time a two breweries have been a part of the project at the same time.
The trio is creating a “juicy” lager for this seventh iteration, aged briefly on virgin oak. Juicy is an understating term, thanks to peach puree, lemon zest and riesling chosen to compliment carefully selected Nelson Sauvin, Lemondrop and Hallertau Blanc hops. The malt bill is quite complex too, brewed with pale malt, Sonoran White Wheat, Missouri wheat, honey malt and corn grits.
The finished beer is bottle conditioned with champagne yeast, producing an effervescent golden lager perfect for the late summer heat. Last year, Arizona Wilderness and Creature Comforts partnered on “Transmission“, a citrus saison.
Boulevard Collaboration 7 is now available in 12 ounce bottles and draft for a limited time.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: August, 2017
The Veil Brewing Fried Fried Chicken Chicken debuts on July 25th. This new India pale ale is brewed with fried chicken. Yes… fried chicken.
Weeks ago, the brewing team from Richmond, Virginia’s The Veil Brewing collaborated with Evil Twin Brewing’s Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø. After overeating fried chicken at a nearby restaurant, the team decided to throw some fried chicken into the mash of this imperial IPA. NO, they weren’t the leftovers.
In the end, fried chicken only made it into one of the two brewing mashes for this release, making up less than .4% of the total weight. According to The Veil, the beer doesn’t taste anything like fried chicken. Dropping some chicken into the beer just seemed like a fun thing to do. (They already brew with cookies and candy.) Check out Jeppe throwing the chicken into the mash below.
Besides chicken, The Veil Brewing Fried Fried Chicken Chicken features Citra, Simcoe, and Enigma hops. Subtitled a “Double Dry Hopped Old Country Double IPA.” You remember the “old country” right? Back when chickens were chickens, and hops were hops. A much simpler time.
Those wanting to drink some fried chicken will have to be at The Veil Brewing early on July 25th. 16-ounce cans will be available when the brewery opens at 4 pm.
