Velvet Truckstop releases new Johnny Sandlin-produced album “Southbound and Down” on Saturday, Nov. 3, as part of Highland Brewing’s Wee Bit Louder Fest.
Pisgah’s here. Wedge is here — aloof rock stars of Asheville beer, confident and not entirely lacking in swagger. French Broad is the proletariat of the scene, big and gentle, unstylish, a touch shambling. Highland: the jetsetter, slick and self-assured. All is revelry, echolalic chatter drowning out the jazz trio.
It’s not every day that Highland Brewing Company produces a small-batch beer for a client. When it does, people take notice. And when the said client is Asheville’s Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa, there’s even more interest.
