Highland Brewing Company has teamed up with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats to create a signature beer, Half Yüszch, for the band’s sold out May 11 tour stop at the iconic Asheville brewery. Half Yüszch is a Czech-style Pilsner whose name is inspired by a yüszch (meaning usual) tradition for the band where they drink a beer and take a shot. Thus, a beer is a Half Yüszch.

Some of the best vacation days are unplanned – snow days, being a tourist in your own town, or a spontaneous day trip. Relish the unscheduled time with Daycation IPA, Highland’s portfolio linchpin and, at 4.9% ABV, the potential for any day to be a Daycation.
With six hop varieties, 6% ABV, and 60 IBUs, Highland’s new seasonal, Southern Sixer IPA, will have hop fiends grabbing another six-pack. Great hops and a deep dive into sensory panels and dry hop trials led this complex IPA to its final form.
Highland Brewing Company will release limited quantities of Black Watch Double Chocolate Milk Stout on Black Friday, November 25, 2016, at the brewery. Black Watch is part of Highland’s Warrior Series: big beers in small batches.
Imagine calling a business meeting on a Sunday, in the morning, without serving coffee. Then add instructions: Don’t eat breakfast or drink coffee before arriving, and IF you brush your teeth, make it at least an hour before you arrive. As the group leader, you’d rightly expect attendance to hover near zero. But there is a time and place where everyone shows up. Hungry and uncaffeinated, employees arrive at Highland Brewing Company for one Sunday morning assignment: deciding the flavor profile for this year’s batch of Cold Mountain Winter Ale.
A Highland Brewing Company perennial favorite, Thunderstruck Coffee Porter, is back this October with two coffee infusions. The lightly caffeinated, cool weather beverage is a collaboration between Highland and Dynamite Roasting Company.
