Solid place - they've got picnic tables outside, which are nice when the weather supports. Very good beers.

Out of all the places I visited in Asheville, this was one of the best. It is a real dive of a building, and when you first walk up most folks are sitting outside on picnic tables, standing in circles, or leaning against a fence all having a pint. Walking into the building there is a smaller outside bar with a few beers and some more concrete and picnic tables. Going further in the building you get to the bigger bar and notice the mob of folks here trying to get a beer. It was like this on two different days I stopped here. I noticed about 10 on draft, and while I waited to get a beer, they erased two choices !!! But they were quickly replaced with new ones. Wide variety of styles, and wonderful names like Donut Skillet, Fall of the Rebel, and Massacre of the Innocents kept it all interesting listening to folks ordering. Every beer I had over two visits were delicious, full flavored and satisfying. At all bars, brewpubs, and restaurants when I asked the bartender or waitress the one place I must visit, this was named the most by the locals.

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.
