Highland To Introduce First Seasonal in a Can

Summer calls for a bright and balanced white ale in a stellar can. Grapefruit peel, candied ginger, and coriander give a fresh approach to a classic white ale in Highland Brewing’s first seasonal beer in a can. Trace Redmond, R&D Brewer, wanted to mirror the spicy character of the Belgian ale yeast. “In addition to the non-traditional fruit peel, we integrated the spicy characteristics of Saphir hops and rye with the Belgian yeast,” said Trace. “I love the balance in the traditional approach, so we have that and some fun complexity.”

Join the celebration on April 27, where we will screen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in the Tasting Room. When the sun sets, the Meadow will turn into an amateur observatory. Attendees are encouraged to BYOT (bring their own telescope), grab a beer, and look out into the deep infinity of space. We’ll have live music with Bonnie Blue, and food trucks on site.

Highland Stargazer is named for the Stargazer Lily, which grows well in North Carolina and is a relative of the state wildflower, the Carolina Lily. As with all seasonal beers from Highland, the name honors an element of the Southern Appalachian landscape. Each seasonal release party is a fund-raiser for the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, with one dollar per pour donated to SAHC, in support of their permanent land conservation efforts.
