“Night Flight” is the brewery’s first race and part of its 20th anniversary celebration in 2014.race_image

The four-mile race course is a loop that has never been raced on before. At the post-race party, enjoy food, live D.J., and beer, including the release of a special American-Style Saison to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Highland Brewing Company and their high quality beers.
