Highland Brewing, Asheville’s oldest craft brewery will open a second taproom next week in their home city. The brewery got its start more than two decades ago in the downtown area, and starting next week will have a home in the center of the city once again.
The historic S&W Building in downtown Asheville, opened in 1929, is now home to the The S&W Market. Building owners Ellington Realty Group has partnered with five-time James Beard nominee Meherwan Irani, known for Chai Pani Restaurant Group and Spicewalla for five different internal food concepts. The space is anchored by a two floor Highland Brewing tap room.
Highland will have 18 taps on site, featuring small batch and barrel aged offerings. Patrons are free to drink, eat, work and wander through the hall at their own leisure.
The food tenants include Bun Intended, Buxton Chicken Palace, Farm Dogs, Hop Ice Cream S&W, and Peace, Love & Tacos. Adjacent to the S&W Building is The Times Bar.
The S&W Market is located at 56 Patton Avenue in Asheville, open to the public on June 16th.
