Twenty years has passed since Highland first opened its creaky basement door, in a town otherwise bereft of breweries. Even with vast development of beer culture in Asheville, our name anchors us here. Highland honors the legends of the Scots Irish, so deeply woven into the Southern Appalachians. On this special occasion, Brewmaster John Lyda gives a nod to local history again, this time with a limited edition Highland Brewing Company 20th Anniversary Scotch Ale.
Rich caramel and roasted notes blend with a subtle hop nose to create an ale suited for the finest occasions. Medium-bodied, it has a brown-red hue from a Caramel malt and roasted barley. It is brewed with the finest traditional Scottish malts and English Fuggle hops. A late addition of Sterling hops imparts a slightly spicy nose, ever so subtle.
Grains: Thomas Fawcett Golden Promise, Briess 2-row, Briess Carapils, Briess Caramel 40, Simpson Roast
