What’s more Asheville than a great local brew (or several)?  Nothing, that’s what.

We were joined by our lovely friend Natalie as we headed to Burial Brewing Co. last week.  She’s an Asheville native and always seems to know the best spots.  She loves this place, and it’s easy to see why.

Burial has a very industrial feel to it–nice and spacious with unfinished wood and metal elements.  Flags decorate the exposed beams and mellow music creates a nice ambience.  And it’s located in the heart of South Slope, known for its incredible brewery lineup (schedule a tour if you can!).

Slap a sticker on the cooler if you’ve got one…you’ll be in good company!

Burial has a 10 barrel brewhouse and a 1 barrel pilot system, which they put to good use cranking out tons of unique and thirst-inducing offerings.  The 1 barrel allows them to create a pilot beer each week, so there’s always something new to try.  Some popular brews are canned and distributed across North Carolina.

Not only do they have great beer; they also hold regular events which they post about on their blog.  There’s a Sunday jazz brunch, regular live music, and will even host a new food stand, “Salt and Smoke” a few days a week starting on Sept. 8th.

You won’t feel cramped or crowded in Burial–it’s a wonderfully spacious venue.

You may be at a loss for what to try first.  That’s okay–bartenders are happy to offer samples to help you decide.

If you’re going to try out a new brewery for the first time, spring for a flight.  It’s a wonderful way to sample what the place has to offer without having to commit to a full pint.

We got a Skillet Donut Stout, The Shroud Dubbel, Haysaw Saison, and a Rosary Belgian Export Stout.  We thought the Haysaw was fantastic–complex, light but still full.  Natalie, a devoted dark-beer kind of gal, thought The Shroud was incredible.

Burial Brewing Co. is a wonderful addition to Asheville’s craft beer scene.  We’re glad it’s starting to get the attention it deserves.
