No food, but 12 beers on tap in an old garage in an industrial area of Asheville. The tap list is posted online at their website, which is nice, and the staff is really attentive. Again, this is a no-frills joint. No air conditioning as the seating for the bar is directly adjacent to the brewing equipment. There are a variety of vintage farm tools on the walls, and all of the tap handles are made from similar such vintage farm tools. There are various pictures of Tom Selleck as Magnum P.I. and Sloth from the Goonies adorning the walls as well. (549 characters)

I absolutely love the feel and decor of this very original brewery. Great live band, with a low key volume and some fantastic beers. The selection was a touch limited, none my wife liked, but the funky grungy look made up for it. (229 characters)

Nice brewery. The location is in the more industrial looking part of Asheville. Burial has all sorts of farming tools for the tap handles and it really fits in with the rustic semi-run-down, patched up looking building. I like it. I think it's got a nice charm to it. The bar tenders were really nice and it was a really laid back atmosphere. They made sure we got good pours (one of the taps was malfunctioning so they wouldn't serve us the beer that might taste off) and were generally really knowledgeable about their beers. Good selection too of many beer styles available. I would come here again and hope they do well enough to keep growing. (648 characters)

This brewery quickly became one of our favorites and was a small enough place that many locals we met had never heard of it. With the unlikely name of Burial Beer Company, these guys started out with a tiny 1 barrel system, and have just recently upgraded to a 10 barrel system. An industrial building just a few blocks from Green Man and the Funkatorium, this place has a cool rusted metal roof and walls lined with old bladed farm implements. The place has a relaxed, slightly ghetto feel that is truly unique among the plethora of taprooms I've been to in my travels. Along the patio side of the building a huge mural of Sloth from the Goonies and Magnum PI bring some wacky color to the otherwise somber space. Folks were cooking up New Orleans style food for the jazz brunch out back when we first arrived, but we sat ourselves at the bar inside.
Our first beer was the Skillet Donut Stout--a beautiful and complex black ale served with a donut hole sticking out on a skewer. Realizing that they did indeed do samplers, we tasted through most of their beers, talking to other bar patrons as we did so. The serving staff was very busy, but did a good job keeping us plied with beer. They had a very respectable West Coast Surf Wax IPA that probably the best IPA I had on this trip. (While nearly every brewery had an IPA, most were less than stellar.) Our favorite of the lot was the Bolo Coconut Brown Ale which rivaled Town Hall Brewery's Three Hour Tour for our favorite coconut beer of all time. (1,515 characters)
