Visited 1/15/16 & 1/17/16

The brewery is pretty awesome. Its very rustic with a modern touch. I prefer that to a shiny new "bigger is better" type of a place. Do not take that as Burial is not clean and orderly, it is. I was very cozy, and there was ample seating whether it be at the bar or two other indoor seating areas. Id love to see it in the spring to enjoy their tasty brews (that Donut Skillet was killer!) outside. A great use of the space in my mind. There was plenty for everyone as far as the beer selection went. My only complaint would have to be with the service side. Having worked in the service industry I always give the benefit of the doubt. We received everything we asked for, but the guys working the bar just had zero enthusiasm and seemed like they were having a bad day. I thought nothing of it at first and smiled and said thank you. It was the same way the next go round and it rubbed me the wrong way. Smile, you work at a awesome brewery! I will be back. The beer is killer.

Arrived right as they opened at 2 PM on a Friday. Actually, went in a bit early--was greeted and served even though not officially open. Seemed small, but there is a pretty large seating area in the back. Brewhouse equipment just down from the bar. Good selection of stuff. Did a flight and all were above average. Was not able to stay long--hoping to get back here again. Definitely a top notch place.

The taproom is in the brewing facility. This is my 2nd or 3rd visit and service has always been excellent and knowledgeable, even for a brewery taproom. More seating than expected, especially if the weather is good enough to take advantage of the outdoor seating.
Flights of 4 four oz samples available and recommended.

Great establishment. They had a good selection of beers on tap with a solid representation of most styles. I am so glad I decided to go to this brewery.

visited for a beer while we were in Asheville. Within walking distance of the city center, down the hill.

small building that has a bar and some brewing equipment. out back there is an outdoor area with picnic tables, and the outer wall has a crazy mural of Tom Selleck and Sloth from Goonies.

They had a selection of draft beer and some cans to go. Both beers had were solid.

Great vibe in the warehouse type of facility in the back of the downtown Asheville area. In the middle of a ton of breweries so easy to get a lot of bang for your buck from this location.

They had a small outdoor area out front, and a large outdoor area in the back that looks like it could handle a ton of people. The inside bar matched their sort of "industrial" vibe in a good way.

Beer is above average and priced very well (as was all the Asheville breweries).

Visited the week before Halloween, so Burial was in their element. Located on a back street in Asheville, NC - kind of hard to find, and parking is a challenge. We found a space that looked quasi-legal and didn't get a ticket (or towed), so it was all good.

Very gritty place in a old warehouse (or something), but what a nice vibe. Bartender was friendly and helpful. No food, but you can't have everything. Dog-friendly, which is a plus in my opinion. Good selection of beers. I'd certainly return!
