NEW RELEASE: Highland Little Hump Spring

New from Highland Brewing Company (Asheville, NC) is Little Hump Spring Ale.  I hope you aren’t too mature to not giggle at the name.  Little Hump Mountain is a mountain summit in Avery County in  North Carolina.  Little Hump Mountain climbs to 5,207 feet above sea level.  I can only assume Highland named the spring ale after the mountain well – because warm weather – hiking – etc.  This spring ale is here, getting hiking, get drinking.

Commercial Description:
This American Pale Ale is a refreshing session beer meticulously handcrafted with a unique Highland twist. Brewed with grains from America’s heartland, using Simcoe hops for bittering and dry hopped with Amarillo and Cascade for aromatics, this beer finishes crisp and clean. It is a palate pleasing seasonal experience.

Style: American Pale Ale

Taste Expectations: Fresh hops – Lemon & Citrus.  Toasted grain.  Crisp, clean, easy drinking.

Availability: 12oz/6pks.  Draft.  Spring seasonal.

4.5% ABV

One thought on “NEW RELEASE: Highland Little Hump Spring

  1. This is a wonderful release in more ways than just its’ taste. The name “Little Hump” was coined by Kristy Urquhart, Associate Director of Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, and is the first “new” seasonal put out under the Highland Brewing, Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy and US Fish & Wildlife partnership that was formed to help raise awareness about the importance of land protection in our mountains. “Little Hump” is part of the “Highlands of Roan” which are 25,000 acres of mountain peaks and ridges, for the most part above 4,000 feet in elevation, that are renowned for their exceptional biological diversity and magnificent beauty. So, “Support a BIG cause, Enjoy a Little Hump!”
