(Asheville, NC) – Pisgah Brewing is the local beermaker most known for specializing in certified organic beers. Now Highland Brewing will get into the act with the release of Black Mountain Bitter. The beer will be released during the week of January 12. Here is the rest of the scoop, per the website:
A style of Pale Ale, Black Mountain Bitter will be lightly hopped with traditional British hop varieties to balance the malt sweetness yet encourage it to tend toward the dry side. We recently received our organic certification from Clemson University after undergoing a rigid inspection and two-month compliance process. Although this represents a big step for Highland, the idea of an all organic product is consistent with our corporate ethos and embrace of natural traditional brewing methods.
Black Mountain Bitter
is the latest in our line of seasonals named after mountain peaks in Transylvania County in Western North Carolina. In the spring, we released our first seasonal beer–Shining Rock Lager, followed by our summer brew–Cattail Peak Wheat, and our fall offering–Clawhammer Oktoberfest. Our ever-popular Cold Mountain Winter Ale was released in mid-November.
