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 it’s interesting all the same.

Visited the brewery when it was still downtown below Barley’s. 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.

Visited the brewery for the Imperial Kashmir release. Big warehouse type place, but very clean and organized. The staff there was very friendly and made the release very painless and quick. They answered everyone’s questions and gave out free samples while waiting in line. They were also giving out free tours for those who were interested. Seems to be a well-run establishment that make some tasty beers.

the new brewery is big clean, and neat to see, not much ambiance becasue it is a big warehouse brewery, selection is samples of their beer while you do a tour, brewers usual do the tour, so very informative....

I went here long before I even knew this was listed as a place. Oscar is really friendly and does a good job of explaining all of their brewing process, even down to the labels. Then he gave me about 3 full pints of 3 different beers (this was before the ABV law changed so I had oatmeal porter, gaelic ale, and kashmir IPA). Afterwards I just went upstairs to Barleys taproom and drank some more Highlands on tap. Great little brewery, and they are moving to a larger one to help spread their beer farther out.

This is a really laid back bunch of folks. I happened to be walking by one afternoon and was able to hop in on a tour with two other guys. I think they gave us 3 pints of beer all told. GAVE. For FREE. You can’t beat that with a stick. Anyway, it was a lot of fun. I hear their location is changing to out East somewhere tho.

This is just a little operation in the basement of some building. They used to have a brewpub years ago, but it’s long since gone. We chatted it up with one of the brewers and he offered us some fresh brews on tap and straight out of the walk-in cooler. The tour was thorough without being painstaking, and the staff was extremely, extremely friendly. I’m a big fan of Highland I feel even more fondly of this brewery now that I’ve visited. The new location is a giant warehouse. I stood in line in it to get some imperial Gaelic ale. Not much to say about it. [September 30, 2011] Highland has dome some serious improvements to their facility. There is a stage, a cool patio area and a ton of seating inside for drinking good beer and socializing. Really nice building now.

No pub, only a brewery. Took a tour led by Oscar who is also the owner, truck driver, assistant bottler, etc., etc. EVERYONE here pitches in on bottling day, no matter what area they work in. It is a small operation with ancient second- hand equipment that puts out a hell of a lot of good beer. Very friendly, laid-back folks. Visit them if you’re near Asheville. Call first.
