Burial’s Transfer Co. taproom and bottle shop expansion provides even more reason to drink the award-winning beer.

WEB EXCLUSIVE Almost exactly two years since Burial Beer Co. expanded its Raleigh taproom in Transfer Co. Food Hall (dubbed The Exhibit), the Asheville-founded brewery is in the process of expanding yet again. Obviously, Raleighites are big fans.

After Longleaf Swine BBQ backed out of the corner spot at Transfer Co. (right next to The Exhibit) last year because of plans to open elsewhere, Burial snatched it up. The extra space allows for Burial to expand the taproom with additional seating (including two-tops!) and build out a bottle shop, giving Burial enthusiasts even more ways to enjoy the brewery’s unique selection of beers, ciders, sours and wines—in person or at home—plus brews from some Raleigh-based breweries as well.

Burial is also doubling the number of taps available at The Exhibit—bringing the total number of draft options to 24. The more taps, the more chances for Burial to show off new releases—which come out very often. The brewery also recently launched natural winery Visuals Wine, which specializes in fermented wines, ciders and aperitifs. So, basically, there will always be something to look forward to.

Art is going to be a big part of The Exhibit’s expansion too. The Burial team is working with a local muralist to create large pieces out of the brewery’s colorful (and oftentimes super-trippy) can and bottle designs, which will only add to the taproom’s edgy vibe. Outside seating will be available around the entire corner of Transfer Co. for when it’s warm enough to sip brews outside in the sun again. Spring couldn’t come soon enough.

Burial hopes to reopen with The Exhibit expansion on March 13.
