Highland Brewing Celebrates Winter with Return of Cold Mountain

Highland Brewing (Asheville, North Carolina) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Cold Mountain, the brewery’s fan-favorite Spiced Winter Ale, during the weekend of Friday, November 6 through Sunday, November 8.

Returning once again to give beer lovers a “taste of the holidays in the Blue Ridge Mountains,” Cold Mountain is a Winter Warmer filled with “notes of vanilla, hazelnut, dark fruit, and cinnamon.” Coming in at 5.9% ABV, Cold Mountain is a full-flavored offering that you can easily enjoy all holiday season long.

“We started receiving messages in May asking about the dates for the Cold Mountain release,” said Nikki Mitchell, Highland’s Hospitality Director. “While this will not be the typical Cold Mountain experience, we are doing our best to make Cold Mountain magic.” Mitchell continued, “Our property will have themed spaces to encourage guests to spread out. Safety for our guests and staff is key. We have table seating in all venues. Guests must wear a mask any time they are not seated.”

The 2020 batch of Cold Mountain will debut at Highland Brewing with a ticketed weekend of socially distanced festivities spanning from November 6 to November 8. Pre-ordering of special Cold Mountain Beer Packs will continue at the brewery through November 14 and full distribution of Cold Mountain is scheduled to begin on Monday, November 15. You can expect to find Cold Mountain available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 12-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and throughout the rest of Highland Brewing’s distribution footprint. Prost!
