Highland Brewing’s New Seasonal Beer Lost Cove Coming Soon

Lost Cove

Get lost this summer with Lost Cove American Pale Ale, a new seasonal beer from Highland Brewing coming in May. Rising temperatures in the South are the perfect setting for this delicately nuanced brew. Lost Cove’s pilsner malt imparts a light body with low bitterness and 4.5% alcohol by volume, accented by the fruit aromas of Cascade hops and the mild fruit and spice accents of Hallertau, a German noble hop. Head Brewer Hollie Stephenson said, “Lost Cove is a thirst quenching, fun, light, sessionable beer with grassy German hops and citrusy American hops. This beer is interesting, its backbone is pilsner malt from the American Midwest, and we fermented it with our house ale yeast, creating a unique spin on an American pale. I’m looking forward to drinking one in the Meadow!”
