Brewery Moves – Burial Beer Expands And Align Brewing Announces Its Closure

In spite of the more than 7000 currently online in the US, we continue to receive new brewery announcements almost daily.

And here’s just some of what’s happening around the country.

Burial Brewing To Expand In Raleigh

Almost six years have passed since Burial Beer first its doors in Asheville. And when the acclaimed brewery brought its mojo east and opened a boutique “art meets beer” venue attached to the Transfer Co. Food Hall in Raleigh, North Carolina last January, they probably assumed things were done for a while.

But they weren’t and aren’t…

Last week Burial Beer took to Instagram to announce that they’d be expanding their presence in Raleigh’s trendy downtown neighborhood and taking on additional space in a beautifully-restored century-old coach house that will link to their current Exhibit space. They’ll also be adding an outdoor patio area, a dedicated can shop space, bathrooms and direct linkage into the Transfer Food Hall.

Built upon a philosophy that’s dedicated to art, creativity, modernization, and preservation Burial Beer launched as a one barrel-operation in 2013 and has grown an almost rabid following over the years for its Belgian-inspired ales and bold American styles

San Diego’s Align Brewing For Sale

On Monday Align Brewing’s owner Andrew Heino took to Facebook to let fans of the brewery know of his plans to move from San Diego to Hawaii. He also announced that he was putting Align Brewing up for sale.

This from his post…

“I want to thank all my friends, family, fans, supporters, and beer community who have made this beer journey of mine, an unforgettable positive experience…As of now, Align is up for sale. Please serious inquiries only. And please do your research beforehand.”

According to the West Coaster, this was Henio second brewery at the same Miramar location.

In 2013 when he and business partner Chris Chalmers (both Stone Brewing Alums) opened Pacific Brewing. After three years Chalmers moved on and Heino re-launched as Align Brewing. Sixx years later he’s the one that is moving on, although he hinted that he will be brewing in Hawaii.
