Come celebrate the love of beer and mountains with Highland Brewing Company, Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy and for the release of the seasonal Clawhammer Oktoberfest, named for Clawhammer Mountain. Help us protect the world's oldest mountains by raising awareness and raising a pint in honor of all the hard work that these organizations do throughout the year protecting land, clean water and conserving unique plant life and animal habitat. $1.00 per pint from the beer sales of the evening will be going towards protecting the beautiful mountains around us. For more information on how you can get involved, click here.

Clawhammer Mountain - This peak is just over 4,000 feet in elevation and is famous for an abundance of world-class single-track mountain biking trails. It is also home to headwaters of both the Davidson River & the Mills River. SAHC will be leading a hike up Clawhammer on a date soon to be determined in early October. This hike is FREE! Usually $10.00 for non-SAHC members.
