Burial Beer Brewery - ask local Asheville people what breweries to visit and Burial Beer Company is on everyone's list. One sip and you can see why!
Downtown Asheville Breweries
When we planned our trip to Asheville, we knew which of the bigger breweries we were going to visit - New Belgium Brewing and Sierra Nevada Brewery. We were leaving the smaller breweries up for grabs until we got there and could talk with people and ask for recommendations.
For the rest, we started asking around. One brewery that showed up on everyone's recommended list was Burial Beer Company. Luckily they were also just a short walk from our hotel!
Burial Beer Location
We visited Burial Beer in the evening, so had to go back the next day to see what the actual location looked like. It's fun and rustic looking with lots of salvaged pieces. There is a patio in the front and on the side. There is also an old rusted out car with stickers all over it.
It was cold and rainy, so there wasn't much going on outside, but it looks like it would be a great place to sit outside and have a few beers.
Inside Burial Beer Company
With a name like Burial Beer Company, you can imagine what their decor looks like. It's very dark and goth. I din't get many good interior photos because it was so dark. There was a long bar and then a few picnic type tables. I sat at a table where I could look into the brewing area, while my husband went to the bar to get us a flight.
Beer Flight at Burial Beer
We chose Surfax (an India Pale Ale), Nostalgia of the Revenant (Brown Ale with Spices), Our Hears of Ruin (Dry Hopped Pilsner), and Endless Nothing (Pale Ale American Style).
We loved them all. Our favorite was the Nostalgia of the Revenant, which was a holiday beer. It was light with just the right amount of spices. Some holiday beers go over the top, not this one.
We will definitely visit Burial Beer Company again on our next trip to Asheville.
