October 2011. This is a cavernous, crowd-favoring place off the beaten path. With live music on the weekend, it seems this place fills up, too. With good beers and lots of free shwag, why not drop in here!? As the original place in Asheville, you should feel obliged! (#561)

Itís safe to say that Asheville wouldnít be the beer mecca it is if not for the pioneer spirit of Highland Brewing Company owner/founder Oscar Wong. The brewery which began in 1994 has expanded its brand and is available in seven states. You can tour the brewery and sample beers like Gaelic Ale, Kashmir IPA and the seasonal offerings in the new tasting room which is open Thursday - Saturday with food and music available Friday and Saturday. The atmosphere is very laid-back so grab a seat at one of the indoor picnic tables under the giant fan and enjoy beers from Ashevilleís oldest brewery.

My favorite brewery in Asheville. The first time I visited was on my 21st birthday on the brews cruise. They were so friendly and seemed honestly excited for me. I got a free pint glass, a poster, and they let our group tap a cask of oatmeal porter(yum!). They constantly kept my cup full and there wasnít a beer I didnít like. My favorites are the oatmeal porter, kashmir ipa, black mocha stout, gaelic ale, and the seven sisters abbey style ale. All are so delicious I canít decide which is my favorite.

This place is way bigger than I expected. Attended for the release of their Tasgal Ale. Very good brew that they have not released in some time. Anyhow, the brewery is pretty cool and the employees were all nice. They had a band set up out side and an area for games (people were playing corn hole). I imagine this is just a working brewery most of the time but if you can get in for a tasting it is a neat place to see.

Iíve been both to the old location in downtown and the bigger newer one. Gotta say, the newer one has more of a factory atmosphere to it, but I guess ambience isnít really a goal of an industrial park. Staff has always been nice. Worth stopping by for a visit if you like getting behind the scenes.

Toured the brewery as part of Brews Cruise... they loaded us down with samples. Had generous servings of all the basics, plus they opened up a couple of bombers of Cold Mountain they found in the freezer. Relatively commercial brewery, but if you know their story itís interesting all the same.

Visited the brewery when it was still downtown below Barleyís. Andy gave me and my buddy Pat a sick little tour with plenty of samples including a bomber of Tasgall he opened towards the end. Everyone there was incredibly friendly (as most in Asheville are). Good times.
