Located in Asheville NC, Burial Beer Co. crafts Belgian-inspired ales, and bold American styles with a dedication to creativity, tradition, modernization, and preservation.
For International Gruit Day, Burial Beer Co. brewed Beacon, a heather gruit ale. It is said that, many years ago, the farmers of Scotland carried torches of burning heather around their farms before midsummer to insure healthy crops and fertile cattle. In modern mysticism, burning heather is said to bring rain. This gruit was inspired by those shimmering beacons parading about the farmland and was brewed traditionally with herbs in place of hops. Blazing red in color and steeped with good intentions, billowing soft notes of smoke and fragrant heather.
