Please join us for a fresh brew and celebrate the love of beer and mountains on Friday, October 18th for the Thunderstruck Coffee Porter release party! Like our other seasonals, Thunderstruck is named for a feature of the Southern Appalachian landscape. Along with each release party, Highland Brewing teams up with Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy and US Fish & Wildlife on a guided hike in the area each seasonal was named after. Stop by Friday night to find out more information on how you can help protect the world's oldest mountains while enjoying a Thunderstruck and listening to great music in the tasting room. Proceeds from the beer sales of the evening will be going towards protecting the beautiful mountains around us.
The creation of innovative and original music is an ever elusive goal in this day and age. The Virginia Dare Devils’ mission to do just that is most certainly well under way. From their beginnings a year ago in the acoustic music hotbed of Asheville, NC, this group of seasoned tour veterans has embarked upon an organic musical journey rooted in traditional melody and tone layered with improvisational solos and textured rhythms reminiscent of 30’s swing bands. Add a little bit of grit plus big family-style vocals and a Virginia Dare Devils show is the crowd-pleasing product.<> Named after the first person of European descent born in the new world, the Virginia Dare Devils’ moniker conjures the image of a culturally blended life and honors the amazing spirit of this legendary woman. Born in what is currently present day costal North Carolina, Virginia Dare is said, in legend, to have wholeheartedly embraced the primitive culture of the Croatoan people after being abducted by them in 1590 along with the rest the settlers of what is known today as “The Lost Colony.
