After going up that winding road that seemingly led to nowhere, we arrived at the brewery, pretty much right when they opened. The place was a lot huger than I would've expected, with the main space being about the equivalent of a large bowling alley. The bar itself was mid-sized, off to the right, with tons of seating space for, I don't know, events? Concerts? Festivals?

Again, the place had pretty much just opened, and we were the only ones there, along with a few other stragglers who came in soon afterward. The staff was pretty laid back. Can't really comment too much on that, since I didn't really see them in action during busy hours, but all things considered, service was fine.

There was a decent amount of beer to choose from, with a few stylistic options. Porters and English style ales seemed to be the central theme. We got a sampler flight of about 6 or 7 beers...none of which really stood out as particularly memorable or good. Lots of merch available, and prices were pretty decent. No food apparently, and considering the size of the place, it's pretty amazing they don't have a kitchen, or at least a little snack bar.

Overall, I wasn't too impressed by Highland. It was a neat venue I guess, but kind of hinted at being a tourist trap brewery. In the grand scheme of Asheville, I'd say that ultimately this place is skippable.
