Highland Brewing was founded in 1994 by retired engineer and entrepreneur Oscar Wong, establishing it as the pioneer of Asheville, NC’s now booming craft beer industry. Highland is committed to quality and sustainability, boasting the sixth largest solar array in an American craft brewery. Today, the company is led by James Beard-nominated family-owner, Leah Wong Ashburn, and serves as the largest Independent, family-owned, and operated brewery native to the Southeast. Highland’s production brewery, Taproom, and three events venues sit on 40-acres in East Asheville, just 10-minutes from downtown. With small batch brews, live music, volleyball courts, and walking trails, there is something for everyone to enjoy a taste of life in the mountains. This summer, fans can again enjoy Highland beers downtown in the brewery’s second taproom opening inside Asheville’s first food hall, The S&W Market.
