Burial Beer coming soon: 40 Collier Avenue

Doug and Jessica Reiser, the owners of Burial Beer, see South Slope as a great place to get their brewing operation under way. They’re planning a small taproom where they will sell tasters, pints and 32-ounce growlers of their craft brews, many of which are Belgian-style ales and German-style lagers.

They plan to open to the public this spring. “Although it’s a small space, we want to make it a space where people can stay for more than just one beer,” Jessica says.

The Reisers are looking forward to having neighbors who will draw visitors, too. Rawls Costenbader manages the warehouse, and Burial Beer is the first of what he hopes will be several tenants. He envisions a set-up in which artists, craftspeople and brewers share the building’s common areas and fenced-in courtyard. “They’re running out of room in the River Arts District,” he says.
