Visited Burial on the suggestion of a friend and was not disappointed. Nothing fancy here, just a rustic-looking place with a bar, a few tables, efficient and friendly staff, and some solid beers. I will be making Burial a regular stop on my trips to Asheville.

A really stylish joint serving great beer in a comfortable atmosphere. It was crowded when we went and thus very difficult to communicate with the bartenders, and there were no servers walking around to assist you. Still, a very cool experience worth checking out if you're ever in town.

Now with food on site, Salt & Smoke, a permanent food trailer in the courtyard. Expanded outdoor seating and second set of taps.

The added a much needed area at the bar to order a beer, as the previous method of ordering over the heads of people sitting at the bar just didn't work for both walk ups and those at the bar.

I went here twice on my recent Asheville visit. This is my kind of place. Very dungeony, medieval, doom metal themes everywhere, and good music on the speakers. Nice bar inside, tables and barrels to stand or sit at out front and in the beer garden out back. Lots of good beer to choose from, and sampler flights allowing you to easily find your favorites. There seemed to be a leaning towards Belgian styles when I was there, with several different saisons on tap, and a very good adjunct dubbel (Planet of Doom). But there were also some good IPAs and porters/stouts available as well. No complaints about the service. I don't think there was food, but they let you bring your own.

Visiting this place is a must. Actually, all things considered, it has the potential to be my favorite brewery in Asheville.

Additionally, prepare yourself for a massively premium bar hop when you come to this part of the city. All within easy walking distance: Funkatorium, Tasty, Asheville Brewing, Burial, Green Man, Twin Leaf. It's hard to beat this neighborhood as far as beer venues goes. I'd say this is the true heart of Asheville right here.

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