Asheville based craft brewery Burial Beer Co. has announced the opening of its new exploratory space in Raleigh, NC called The Exhibit. Burial says this new location will be a place to share the story of Burial Beer Co., as a complete journey through their art, their products and their mantra about life and death.
The expression of this boutique gallery for our beer and art is similar to that of a cafe, where visitors can sample wares and take their favorites to go. Burial drew inspiration from chefs who have large restaurants and “to go” cafes, offering a different take on the customer experience. It’s something unique and special to the Raleigh area, and its not intended to duplicate Burial’s original taproom.
“Our origin will always be in the funky little shack on Asheville’s South Slope,” read a Burial Beer press release. “We hope that people see this new space as an outlet for our artistic passions and a focused tasting experience.”
This narrow, limited space allows explorers the opportunity to sample Burial’s rarest beers on draft and in package. They will offer explorative cans and bottles previously available only in its Asheville taproom. Visitors should consider this place a permanent outpost for can releases where people can come and obtain small batch releases to share and commune outside of the confines of the brewery’s walls.
The Exhibit opened Jan. 5, 2019 at 500 E. Davie St., Ste. 170, adjacent to Transfer Co. Food Hall in Raleigh’s growing downtown. They opened with a bevy of can and bottle releases, including:I Used to Be An Athlete DIPA, To Streak Blood Across My Brow DIPA, Houtenhamer Double Bourbon Barrel Aged Imp Stout, The Virtue of Patience Bourbon Barrel Aged Barleywine, The Savages of Ruminating Minds IPA and more.
Founded in June 2013, Burial Beer Co. crafts Belgian-inspired ales, and bold American styles with a dedication to creativity, tradition, modernization, and preservation. Residing in and revitalizing the South Slope District of Asheville, NC, the brewery began its life as a one-barrel system that grew to a ten-barrel in just over a year. Fall 2016 brought a new wave of expansion and revitalization as Burial Beer Co. expanded again to a second location, the “Forestry Camp.” This location is home to a twenty-barrel production brewery and soon to be locally purveyed restaurant and two-story craft beer bar in South Asheville. The Brewery currently distributes to North Carolina, Georgia, and New York.
