This coming weekend will mark the 20th anniversary for Asheville’s favorite local beer brewers, Highland Brewery. Friday and Saturday will be busy with races to benefit local greenways, new beers, hammocking, and music.
About the Race
Run for your beer! Or just have a beer. On Saturday, July 12, a new evening race at Highland Brewing will illuminated by a full moon and glowing pints of beer. “Night Flight” is our first race and part of our 20th anniversary celebration in 2014. The four-mile course is a loop that has never been raced on before. At the post-race party, enjoy food trucks, music and delicious fresh beer, including the release of our 20th Anniversary American Saison!
Friday night: Marley Carroll 8:00-10:00pm
Marley Carroll is known among his peers as “the producer’s producer.” This distinction is both a blessing and a curse for the 28-year-old musician. A classically trained pianist and percussionist, but never content to color inside the lines, he became the youngest ever to win the title of Best Scratch DJ for his home state of North Carolina – at 17. In the ten years since, he has has never stopped pushing, undergoing a full transformation into a veteran electronic producer, vocalist, and live performer.
Saturday: Medison kicks off the post race party from 8:30-11:00pm
ENO Lotus Lounge
The DJ’s will be blasting beats from the second story center of the Lotus Lounge. Whether you want to break it down on the dance floor or sip a pint while relaxing in a hammock, the juxtaposition of activities always makes for an unusually fun evening. We hope to see you there!
The event is being produced in partnership with the City of Asheville and the Asheville Parks & Greenways Foundation. 100% of net procees will be donated to develop greenways in Asheville.
