On Saturday, July 12, a new evening race will conclude at the Highland Brewing Company in Asheville, N.C. The Night Flight Race will be illuminated by a full moon, glowing pints of beer and the two-story ENO Lotus Lounge. The race begins at 8 p.m. and will go until at least 11:30 in the Highland Brewing Tasting Room, 12 Old Charlotte Hwy., Asheville, N.C.

“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.

The event is being produced in partnership with the City of Asheville and the Asheville Parks & Greenways Foundation, with all proceeds going to the development of a planned greenway along the Swannanoa River in East Asheville.

Cost: $43 includes timed race, shirt, glowing cup, and your first beer.
