    From The Beer Trappe's Facebook page:

    "Tomorrow at 5pm we will be helping launch Highland Brewing from Asheville, NC by tapping the following kegs: Highland Kashmir IPA, Highland Little Hump and Highland Gaelic Ale!"

    This is why we can't ever take no for an answer when we email breweries to come to Kentucky. I've had emails with Highland and they've been pessimistic about coming. But things change, there's room for expansion, and maybe those emails helped change their minds. Highland makes good beer. A nice addition to our scene.

    I'm from Western North Carolina and I've had Highland's beers many times. Very nice beers.

    My friend's from Asheville rave about these guys. Looking forward to trying them. I think it is a black stout that they like so well.

    Having visited Asheville a few times and having tried most of they local breweries, highland wouldn't be in the top half of the best Asheville has to offer. I hate to sound jaded, but another average brewery coming to kentucky.

    Black Mocha Stout is my favorite of their year round offerings. Cold Mountain and Thunderstruck are probably my favorites overall. The rest is pretty underwhelming IMO.
