Mark your calendars! We are back for our 6th year, showcasing a style that has inspired us from the beginning. A style that literally translates to “season”, one that reminds us of spring and the agricultural bounty we all share in to create our liquid. Sharpen the Blades Saison Showcase will feature over 20 breweries from around the country and world on tap to celebrate the season.

Our annual saison showcase has been pared down to a more curated tap event featuring 24 different saisons and mixed culture beers from some of the nation’s finest. Beers will be tapped at front and back bar starting at noon on 4/27. The event is not ticketed; it is a pay per beer approach. We will have 4oz, 8oz and 12oz pours available of each event beer. We will also have other Burial beers on tap at the front and back bars that are not saisons.

And a triple release. Hell yes. We are pumped to release a brand new can collaboration with TRVE Brewing. Born From Death. A dry and quaffable clean saison with Nectarine and peach blossoms from our taproom trees.

Our newest mixed culture bottle is stellar. The Garden of Earthly Delights 2019 continues our tradition of using various gifts from the garden. This Mixed Culture Saison is made this season with persimmon, Asian pear, cinnamon, sweet potato, and cardamom.

Finally, the full release of this recently previewed beauty comes to Sharpen. The 2018 vintage Separation of Light and Darkness Mixed Culture Saison aged on NC Peaches.

Each of these new releases will be available on draft along with a surprise offering. Our kitchen is featuring a farm-fresh menu. One Leg Up will be playing Gypsy Jazz from 2-4 pm followed by Billy Cardine and North of Too Far Downs playing (Appalachian World Fusion) from 5-7pm. Mountain Floral will be selling flowers and Green River Botanicals will be selling CBD products.
