Burial Beer Co. Raids the Candy Jar to Create Skillet Snacks

Burial Beer Co. (Asheville, North Carolina) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Skillet Snacks on Wednesday, May 26.

Concocted to be an even more decadent take on Burial’s infamous Skillet Donut Stout “made from a blend of nine barley malts, a healthy scoop of oats, milk and molasses sugars, and [their] favorite blend of freshly roasted Counter Culture Coffee beans,” Skillet Snacks takes the OG Skillet and “[ages it] upon heaps of house-made peanut butter, French Broad Chocolates Cocoa Nibs, fresh vanilla bean, and some candy sugars.” Coming in at 8% ABV, Skillet Snacks offers a “fistful of molten reeces cups chased with bags of M&M’s and washed down with caramel hot chocolate.”

A very limited amount of 4-packs of 16 oz. cans of Skillet Snacks – along with cans of the original Skillet and the Skillet mug pictured above – will be available for online presale for pickup at Burial Beer Co.’s Asheville taproomRaleigh taproom and Charlotte taproom at noon on May 26. If any cans survive the presale, the brewery will release those in their online shop for nationwide shipping on May 27 at noon. Skillet Snacks will not see distribution. Prost!
