Asheville, NC, July 12th, 2016 — In early January 2016, Burial Beer Co. announced their plans for second brewery also located in Asheville, NC and plans for a new side project. The brewery, which opened in 2013 with a one-barrel system, quickly outgrew the home-brew size brewery into a ten-barrel operation. Now having just celebrated their third anniversary in June, the brewery will expand distribution outside their home state.
As Burial Beer Co. gears up to expand distribution, first, to the state of Georgia, they have announced their distribution partnership with Liberator Distributing. Both businesses are family owned endeavors whose ethoses are anchored in organic growth fostered by small beginnings.
“Their (Burial Beer Co.) thoughts regarding quality, innovation, social responsibility, and community make them the type of brewery we want to partner with,” states Jason Wiles, owner and founder of Liberator Distributing. “We started Liberator Distributing to provide a home for small, high quality, like-minded breweries that are looking to start small and grow organically with us. We are excited to be working with such an amazing group of people who clearly care about the why and the how as much as the what.”…
“Although we are an expanding brewery, we strive to maintain a production size that speaks to our craft, to our culture, and to the people who support us along the way,” explains Jess Reiser, one of three Owners of Burial Beer Co. “Beer drinkers in Georgia can expect a unique rotation of brands to on a regular basis in as many craft beer focused retailers and bottle shops as we are able to reach with the limited amount of beer we continue to produce.”…
“We have self distributed in the great state of North Carolina since day one. Doing so afforded us the opportunity to understand the intricacies of the craft beer community, form amazing relationships with the local retailers, and really get to know loyal beer drinkers and what they enjoy,” states Reiser. “Moving into a different state is very exciting for our growing business and partnering with a distributor who is passionate, like-minded and an extension of who Burial Beer Co. is both a brand and as people is something that is very important to us.”
