Owner description: Asheville's first legal brewery since Prohibition was born in a downtown basement in 1994. Now a regional brewery, Highland is still family-owned. We offer the highest quality beer in welcoming and spacious venues both inside and out. An expansion in 2015 will lead to increased production, new private event spaces, and a rooftop bar above the solar array. Choose from year-round, seasonal, and several rare releases. The family-friendly atmosphere has made Highland a local favorite and a community gathering place. Tours are free - please see website for times. (Food or cash donations for local charities are appreciated.) Free music on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Visit our website for daily limited-release beer selections, events, and more.

“One of the best craft brewery's you can visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Big tap room. Large bar, plenty of tables, big stage and two sets of taps for their standard beer line up and seasonals. We got the tour which was interesting. They have a an outdoor area with tables to enjoy the good weather days and nights. Some of the brews tours have it on their schedules.

“Great Scene - More Than Just a Brewery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We love the local breweries because no two are the same. Highland has it going on, with a ton of outdoor space, live music inside, plenty of seating, corn hole, food trucks, etc. And on a gorgeous April day like we had, the open indoor/outdoor feel was perfect. Wish we lived closer!

“Great tour and beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Stopped in on a Tuesday for a tour ( only 2 tours a day 4:00 and 4:45). Ended up with large group but tour guide did a fun, informative tour and history of brewery. Best buy was the "sampler" at the end . It was 6 different ales to try ! What a cheap , easy way to determine which you like the best!

“Fun place with delicious beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon to try some beer and were pleasantly surprised with the live music and the family atmosphere! You can even bring your kids here who will enjoy running around, dancing and playing with other kids. At 600pm a food truck even pulled up and we had a very delicious falafal sandwich. This is a good idea for a fun and early evening event that the whole family can enjoy.
