Burnpile began 10 years ago amidst a group of friends in Seattle who came together to celebrate changes in life and in seasons. Food was shared and harvest inspired beers were cracked and consumed. After moving to Asheville to open Burial Beer Co in 2013, owners, Doug, Tim and Jess wanted to carry on this tradition with new friends and their new community in Asheville. The first Burnpile Harvest Fest took place in the modest, yet to be expanded taproom which housed a 1 barrel system. Tim, Jess and Doug drove around the state picking up kegs and building relationships. Now most of those breweries have also grown and distribute regularly to all corners of North Carolina.
Over the years, more people started attending Burnpile, the taproom improved with a new stage, roof top, kitchen and more outdoor space. Breweries from around the country started sending kegs to honor the season and the friendships Burial was building along the way.
Another chapter of Burnpile closed for a new one to begin. Burnpile Harvest Fest will take place on a sprawling 2 acre property, capable of not only fitting more people but more pouring stations and food stations. Due to the inclusive, private nature of the property, we moved away from tokens to an all encompassing ticket price which provides unlimited access to over 60+ breweries; live music from The Beach Fossils (https://www.beachfossils.com/) and All Them Witches (http://www.allthemwitches.org/) with A Place to Bury Strangers (http://www.aplacetoburystrangers.com/); a chance to experience one of Asheville’s premier historical properties with one of the first glimpses of the new restaurant and Burial’s production facility.
We have several ticketing tiers to offer an array of experiences ranging from those who are only interested in seeing the amazing line up of touring bands as well as two performances by Unifire Theatre; to those who are intrigued by limited bottle releases, intimate talks with brewers and exclusive pours during Off Topics as well as those who are looking for something in between- a day of music, rare draft offerings and friends.
