Burial Beer Co. (Asheville, North Carolina) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Bottle Release for Empire of Eternal Nothingness, “one of [the brewery’s] finest Imperial Stouts,” at noon on Wednesday, October 14.

Empire of Eternal Nothingness – available in 500ml bottles for $19 each – will be available for online presale for pickup at Burial Beer Co.’s Asheville taproom and Raleigh taproom at noon on October 14 (proxies are welcome).
