Burial Beer

Grabbing a drink? Try the Spiral Pilsner, created by Burial Beer especially for the Asheville Art Museum in celebration of our grand re-opening!

Tasting notes from the taproom:
An homage to the great musings of the wondrous minds that once filled the AVL canvas. Made with the Asheville Art Museum to celebrate its new chapter. Mashed with pilsner malt and hopped deftly with noble varietals. Carbonated with intention.
