    We loved getting married at Highland

    We got married at Highland on 3/10/2019. From touring the venue to booking to our reception, the Highland team was responsive and great to work with. We’re from Ohio, and Nikki and Hope were so helpful in helping us plan from afar. My dad was in an accident three weeks before our wedding, neccesitating a lot of changes in timeline and layout and the entire team was so accommodating during an extra stressful time. The venue is both beautiful and casual, and was so perfect for us. Our guests had a great time and enjoyed the beer immensely.

    Great beer, beautiful space, excellent vendor!

    We chose Highland based on our visits to the taproom and concerts on the field. Nikki and the rest of the Highland team went above and beyond our expectations, though. They were so flexible, communicated clearly, and since most of the wedding was planned long distance for me, that was so important. We had asked to have as much of the wedding outside, even for mid-November, and they obliged. Thankfully, the weather was perfect and both the ceremony and most of cocktail hour could be up on the roof, which has stunning mountain and sunset views. The night of our event, their coordinator was on hand with my planner, making sure everything was running smoothly from the bar to the table settings to letting my husband and me into the canning facility for pictures. We loved the ambience of the room, the lights and colors and stage are perfect for a dinner and party. Plus, we were able to set up cornhole in the front entranceway so guests could escape and still relax inside. We loved how Highland met our family’s expectations for a more formal wedding while also having the relaxed, fun vibe we wanted. Thank you Nikki and Hope!

    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!
