It was the day after Valentines Day and we were wondering around downtown Asheville in search of some warmth.  It was brutally cold but somewhere came the unmistakable thump thump of live music.  Somewhere people were warm and having fun.  We rounded a corner, the wind whipping, and found ourselves onthe doorstep to Burial Beer Co.

Inside, Burial was having a post-parade Mardi Gras party and we just happened to stumble into the middle of it. Some of the guys from Hivemind, a brewery that will open in Asheville sometime in the spring, were cooking up creole favorites.
