Original large tasting room, and a new roof top deck, the meadow, and upper level tasting/event rooms. (no more closing because of a private event).

Huge change in beer offerings, all for the good. New Brewer, and apparently a goal to expand the product line have produced some great beers.

Service can be iffy at the bar... some time great, sometimes you feel you are invisible as the younger and prettier are served.

The place is huge and they hold indoor concerts there on occasion. Beer selection is fairly varied, but limited to those brewed in house. When crowded, such as during concerts, service is adequate, at best. Under normal conditions, the service is quite good. Beer quality is rather good, but nothing is world class, yet.

Staff are some of the nicest people you could ever meet, and the service is unmatched, as is the on-tap selection. While they have a number of year-round brews and seasonal on draft, I would recommend any or all of the small-batch brews which can only be had on-tap at the brewery. They are brewed by the employees, who are allowed to brew at least one small-batch beer of their own each year. I would definitely recommend the tour, make sure Gary is your guide if you do so, he is hands-down one of the best tour guides I've ever had at any sort of venue and one of the nicest dudes I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Brewery was in a huge open warehouse. Had a cool band playing on a Friday night. Food trucks outside. Cool vibe inside. Family friendly atmosphere too. They had a satellite bar set up with some special brews and employee brewed beers. Everyone was super friendly here. Nothing costs more than $4.50 for a full pour. Flights were $8 for six pours. Highland has never put out beers that blow me away. They have some good solid beers though that will be around for a long time. Tour was fun and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable. When the bartender closed me out he gave me a sample of a beer based on a conversation we had about other beers an hour or so earlier. That service stands out to me.
