Happenings at Highland Brewery April 3rd – 4th

highland brewing company

It's a fairly normal week at Highland Brewing Company with The Allen Thompson Band playing at the brewery on Friday and Red Honey on Saturday. Highland will be releasing a special small batch brew on Friday, specifically created for the "Re-Happening Event" that takes place this Saturday, April 4th at Camp Rockmont. Re-Happening is an annual event put on by the Black Mountain College + Arts Center that honors the history and significance of Black Mountain College. It is known around the world and just got mentioned in the NY Times.  

Information about the small batch brew known as Abstract Black IPA: Opaque and black, delicious aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, loads of citrusy hops and a hint of smoke mingle on the nose, carrying through to a balanced, bitter, roasty middle and finish. Brewed with Columbus, Amarillo and Cascade hops and dry hopped with Equinox, Horizon and Mosaic, there’s no shortage of bright citrus flavor in this beer. It’s like a simple breakfast of black coffee and grapefruit (although, we wouldn’t recommend it for breakfast). ABV - 5%
