BEER SPOTLIGHT: Highland Lost Cove American Pale Ale

Now that Summer has officially arrived, it's time to get lost... courtesy of Highland Brewing Company.

With the recent Summer seasonal, Lost Cove American Pale Ale, Highland has released a beer that's inspired by the spirit of Appalachia's past. The light, hop-forward craft beer with hints of citrus beckons its namesake legendary ghost town on the Nolichucky River. Back in the day, independent families lived there, hidden far from civilization. Today, the small town by the forest is abandoned, but lives on through Highland Brewing Company.

Head Brewer Hollie Stephenson said, "Lost Cove is a thirst quenching, fun, light, sessionable beer with grassy German hops and citrusy American hops. This beer is interesting, its backbone is pilsner malt from the American Midwest, and we fermented it with our house ale yeast, creating a unique spin on an American pale. I’m looking forward to drinking one in the Meadow!”

Through a partnership with the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy (SAHC), Highland raises awareness of their conservation efforts, raises money with each seasonal release party, and takes part in hikes and habitat restoration efforts.
