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 place to hang out with friends and family. The staff there are wonderful and the atmosphere is very Asheville. In the Spring and Summer they Meadow is open so you can bring blankets and chairs and enjoy the outdoors while sipping on great beer. Also going to have a new rooftop bar!

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!

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.

Lots of local beer options, including doing a taste test of some bourbon made at the attached distillery. They even had live music.

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.
