About Highland Brewing Company

Highland Brewing Company is a craft brewery with a separate event venue located on 40 acres in Asheville, North Carolina perfect for weddings, rehearsal dinners, welcome parties and more. This incredibly unique event space in Asheville’s original craft brewery was designed with a polished, industrial chic vibe that allows you to elevate décor as much or as little as you like.

Facility & Capacity

With hundreds of events annually, The Event Center at Highland Brewing is one of the most sought-after private event venues in Asheville. We focus on craftsmanship and quality in our beer and our events. The Event Center at Highland Brewing offers indoor and outdoor event areas to accommodate up to 300 guests for seated dinners and 450 guests for cocktail-style receptions.

The Event Center features soaring ceilings with natural light that pours in through vast clerestory windows, natural wood bar tops, and a stage with state-of-the-art sound and light equipment. The venue also offers a wedding suite, elevator, catering kitchen and plenty of on-site, paved parking. Seating for up to 275 guests is included in the venue rental as well as bar staff, audio visual support and an event coordinator. Above the Event Center, the spacious 3,000-square-foot Rooftop Beer Garden is an inspiring backdrop for your ceremony or welcome party and boasts 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains with scenic sunsets and a shipping container bar.

Food & Beverage at our Private Events

If you love craft beer, an event at Highland Brewing is the perfect way to celebrate with some of the best beer Asheville has to offer. The Event Center main bar and Rooftop bar feature all 9 year-round Highland brews and seasonal beers on draft. Beer lovers also have the option to request a signature small batch beer to serve at your event.

In addition to our beer, we also offer cider, wine by the glass, and a selection of non-alcoholic beverages. You may also request to bring in your own wine selection, which can be served at the event for an additional corkage fee. Glassware for our beverages is included in your venue rental. Highland Brewing does not cater or offer food service. As a result, you have the flexibility to hire the caterer of your choice.

History

Highland Brewing was founded in 1994 by retired engineer and entrepreneur Oscar Wong, establishing it as the pioneer of Asheville, NC’s now booming craft beer industry. With an established and inventive portfolio, Highland is known for consistently excellent beer. Proudly regional, the company is now run by Wong’s daughter, Leah Ashburn, and has grown to be the largest independent, family-owned brewery in the Southeast.

OPENING SPRING 2020 – Highland Brewing’s Barrel Room - Posh without being stuffy, casual without being boring – The Barrel Room is perfect for receptions, rehearsal dinners, and weddings under 80 guests and features racks of barrels, skylights, glass garage doors, and a private bar with views of our sour and barrel-aged beer.

    Excellent time at Highland Brewing.

    We had an excellent time at Highland Brewing, and would highly recommend the experience to anyone looking for an amazing wedding experience. We worked with Nikki and Marissa, and were very happy with their responsiveness, professionalism, flexibility, and enthusiasm for our big day. The ceremony was done on the rooftop, and the reception was held downstairs in the event space. We heard from nearly all of our attendees that they had an excellent time, that the space was beautiful, and that they wished that their weddings were (or will be) there. Again, Highland Brewery is a high recommend.

    Highland Brewing Company's reply:

    Thank you so much Wes & Kelsey! Your wedding was beautiful and the band at your reception was absolutely epic! We are so glad you chose to spend your wedding day with us at Highland Brewing. Cheers to you both! Nikki

    When you think of the WNC area a few things come to mind. Mountains, the blue ridge parkway, Asheville, and Beer! Highland Brewing Company sits at the center of all of this (figuratively and literally speaking). We've had the pleasure of attending and working a couple of events here and the experience has always been stellar! From the hospitality, to the space, to the beer, Highland Brewing Company is simply an excellent choice for those looking to have an authentic wedding experience and for those who are lovers of craft beer!

    I love Highland Brewing!! They are the best - the staff, the venue, and the beer! There isn't much more you can ask for, but they definitely give it. They have a rooftop, mezzanine for cocktail, and a beautiful reception space! They provide chairs, tables, and set up. You can't get much more Asheville than Highland!
