Welcome to Highland! We are a local gathering spot, serving the finest craft beer in our indoor and outdoor venues. Enjoy a pint or a flight, take a tour, and bring the family!
Highland's name honors the Scots Irish who settled in the Appalachian mountains in the 18th and 19th centuries, and whose culture continues to influence local music, drink and language. Founded in 1994, we are Asheville's first legal brewery since Prohibition. Founder Oscar Wong is Chinese and was born and raised in Jamaica. His daughter Leah marks the second generation of family ownership.

Great beers and a fun tour. Huge event space. Free samples at the distillery next door on the weekend! Keep an eye out for any small batch stuff from their pilot brewery on tap - it's usually worth trying. Also, keep an eye out for the founder on your tour - he often comes over to say hello and he's super nice!

Love Highlands beers. They have a wonderful selection of year round beers and seasonal draughts. They also have a great outdoor bar area and field for events. The inside has a great setup for a band and indoor activities like Cornhole that give the warehouse a beer hall feel.

Visited for one night stop over in fall of '14 for the Cold Mountain release party. My first visit to this brewery was great. Live music, large main room was packed and a variety of beers.

A gold standard for semi-industrial company/consumer interactions. Phenomenal taproom combined with one of consistently the best tours in the industry make Highland a must visit for any craft beer enthusiast, or anyone interested in chemistry.

Highland was the 1st brewery on our recent trip to several in Western NC. It's less than a handful of miles from downtown and Tunnel Road. Highland is an established name in Asheville beer history and known for their consistency. On a lazy, pre-holiday December Sunday, the large tasting room was less than capacity, but comfortable and inviting. Flights are available - including their standards and available small batch selections. And the brewery tour was entertaining and worth the wait!

Husband and I very much enjoyed our quick visit today! The flight was a great value and I learned to my amazement that I LOVE their porter! We'll be back soon with closed toe shoes on to take the tour.
