The story of Burial begins long before the inception of our Asheville Taproom. After living in New Orleans, Doug and Jess Reiser moved to Seattle and were quickly introduced to Tim Gormley and the craft beer scene. The three started a beer blog and deepened roots within the industry, leading to the decision to start their own brewery. The search for the perfect spot ended when they found Asheville, a town that offered a small, close-knit community with urban attractions such as bars, restaurants, music, and art as well as a connection to local agriculture.

Mrs. James was the beating heart of the Diamond, a Marshville, NC native who loved to cook & serve and had a personality for hospitality. “We had people who came and ate with us every day,” said son Ralph. “My mother made it a point to learn everyone who came by name.

When Blake Barnes started The Common Market in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood of Charlotte in 2002, his big idea was to supply the neighborhood with urban convenience, a modern twist on general stores of the past.
