Quest Brewing & Burial Brewing Team Up

Greenville, South Carolina’s Quest Brewing Company has partnered with Asheville, North Carolina’s Burial Beer Co. to create a new collaboration for Greenville Craft Beer Week.

Don Richardson of Quest Brewing, and Tim Gormley created Calumet, a strawberry rhubarb grisette style beer.

…Grisette, a cousin of the Saison, is a style that not many are familiar with, but both Don and Tim were intrigued by. This deaden style was known in its prime as the drink of the Belgian miners, while its close cousin, the Saison , was known as the drink of the Belgian farmers. Both brewmasters were inspired with reviving a style that beer consumers may not have come in contact with before.

Calumet, translated to ‘peace pipe’ in Cherokee, will be available to the public for the first time on April 23rd at Quest Brewing Company. Burial will taps kegs in their tap room as well.

Additionally, there will be a limited VIP pre-tasting at Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria of Greenville, in their private tasting room on Monday, April 20th for 14 people. To purchase a ticket, please contact Barley’s of Greenville at 864.232.3706.

Style: Grisette (w/ Strawberries, Rhubarb)
