Highland Teams Up with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats for a Limited Beer Release

Highland Brewing Company has teamed up with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats to create a signature beer, Half Yüszch, for the band’s sold out May 11 tour stop at the iconic Asheville brewery. Half Yüszch is a Czech-style Pilsner whose name is inspired by a yüszch (meaning usual) tradition for the band where they drink a beer and take a shot. Thus, a beer is a Half Yüszch.

Half Yüszch will be sold on draft and in cans designed by local artist Drew Findley on May 11. $1 from each beer sold will support The Marigold Project, a foundation established by Nathaniel Rateliff to address issues of economic and social justice. Half Yüszch will also be available on draft at the sold out shows in Charlotte, N.C. (5/8) and Raleigh, N.C (5/9).

For fans who were unable to get tickets to the sold-out Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats show on May 11, Highland will host a listening party of Tearing at the Seams, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ newly released album, on Thursday, May 10. Half Yüszch will be available in 6-pack cans and on draft at the listening party.

A classic rendition of a classic style, Half Yüszch is a dry, drinkable, and refreshing Czech Pilsner. Weyerman Pilsner malt imparts a clean and elegant mouthfeel, while Saaz hops contribute mild earthy, floral, and herbaceous aromas. Asheville’s soft mountain water, similar to that of Bohemia, allows for the delicate hops and malt notes to shine. Crisp and crushable, Half Yüszch is the perfect beer to pair with an evening of restless and soulful music.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are currently on tour in support of their new album, Tearing at The Seams. The album is currently available here. The single “You Worry Me” was #1 at AAA radio for eight consecutive weeks, and the album has more than 22M streams worldwide.
