12 Old Charlotte Highway, Asheville, NC, 28802

Having moved into a large new production facility in 2006, Highland Brewing was perfectly positioned for the rise in profile of North Carolina beer after state lawmakers eased the limit on beer strength. Asheville is a fast-growing mountain town, with a beer scene to match, including five breweries.

Gaelic Ale

beer style: Amber Ale
alcohol content: 5.8% ABV

Its name and caramel character nod toward Scotland, but the resiny hop finish is distinctly American.

Oatmeal Porter

beer style: Porter
alcohol content: 5.8% ABV

Chocolate to start, with roasted coffee beans emerging, more prominent in the mouth. Coffee and cream impression. Dry and bitter.
