Burial Beer Co. Lightens Things Up with Release of Ultralight Lager

Burial Beer Co. (Asheville, North Carolina) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Can Release of Ultralight on December 1, 2021.

Crafted to be “a classic rendition of German Helles portrayed through [Burial’s] own lense,” Ultralight is a Helles-style Lager “made with Pilsner and Vienna malts, decocted and step mashed for depth, . . . spunded in the cellar for natural carbonation, . . . [and then] delicately hopped with Hallertau Mittelfruh to pay homage to its origin before lagering for many weeks to beautiful clarity.” Coming in at 5% ABV, Ultralight offers notes of “fresh loaves of crusty country bread, bouquets of fall blossoms, and mugs of, well I’ll just say it, beer.”

Ultralight will be available on December 1 for online presale for shipping and pickup at Burial’s Asheville, Raleigh and Charlotte taprooms, and limited distribution will follow shortly after that date. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within the brewery’s distribution footprint. Prost!
