Highland Brewing Company is a craft brewery with a separate event venue located 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.
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.
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. All beer must come from Highland Brewing.
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.
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.
