Oscar Wong

Founder, Owner, Board Chair, Chief Peddler, Schmoozing and Cleanup Guy

Highland founder, Oscar Wong, was born in Jamaica in 1940. At 18, he left the island to attend the University of Notre Dame, where he completed his masters in Civil/Structural Engineering. After retiring early from a successful engineering career that took him all over the country, Oscar landed in Asheville in 1994 and started Highland Brewing "as a hobby" in the 3,500 square foot basement of Barley's Taproom in downtown Asheville.

He is an active member of the Rotary Club and other community-minded volunteer endeavors. He was awarded Small Business of the Year in 2007/2008 and the William A. V. Cecil Award for Leadership in Hospitality in 2011, both by the Asheville Chamber of Commerce.

Leah Wong Ashburn

Family Owner, President

Leah has been a fan since the beginning in 1994 - Oscar is her father. Cheering him all the way, she worked in the printing industry for 15 years before joining the brewery in 2011. She is proud to be part of a company that has changed Asheville. Her favorite part of the job is the fact that "Drinking Highland beer is PR. Drinking other beer is Market Research.
