Draft Releases happening this week at Burial Beer Company:
Tuesday, 12/8 – Shadowclock Cans and Draft – Made with German barley and American corn, our own brewer’s prize is then dry-hopped with Sterling and Tettnanger hops.

Thursday- 12/10- Blade and Sheath Hoppy Farmhouse – A simple, country- side saison with a light body. Made with Riverbend Malthouse Rye malt and flaked oats then Dry hopped with Calypso, Nelson Sauvin and El Dorado, you will enjoy notes of tropical fruits and grape must.

Thursday- 12/10- The Forge Tomatillo Mexican Lager– SMALL BATCH! The 4th beer in our small batch, employee driven series, The Forge, was brewed by General Manager, Travis Floan. Since he worked so hard to get those gardens looking pristine during the warmer months, it was only fitting that he harvested garden fresh vegetables to use in this lager. Brewed with corn, Riverbend Malthouse Pilsner malt and estate tomatillos, this beer was then aged on chili peppers from our gardens as well as key lime.
ABV: 4.6% OG: 1.047 IBU: 15 Color: Gold
Saturday 12/12- The Forge Kombucha Imperial Stout- SMALL BATCH! The 5th beer in our small batch, employee driven series, The Forge, was brewed by Lab Director, Rachel Simpson. With a background in both beer and Kombucha it was only fitting that she merge the two beverages. An Imperial Stout brewed with a decadent malt bill and milk sugars, Rachel aged the beer on cranberries and vanilla bean then blended a tart batch of house made kombucha into the beer post-fermentation. While the tartness from the cranberries and blend of kombucha is unique to the style, the flavors are rounded out by the beer’s sweetness, vanilla beans and the malt complexity of the base beer.
ABV: 8% OG: 1.087 IBU: 61 Color: Black
