Highland Brewing Co. Launches Metal Rat Hazy IPA for Chinese New Year

Highland Brewing Co. in Asheville, North Carolina has announced the release of its anticipated Metal Rat Hazy IPA, a collaboration with Lucky Envelope Brewing in Seattle, Washington. More details from the brewery are below.


Join us as we celebrate the dawning of the Year of the Metal Rat with a special collaboration beer release with Seattle's Lucky Envelope Brewing! Metal Rat Hazy IPA was brewed on both coasts with Lotus hops and locally grown wheat from Washington and North Carolina.

Our brewers say that Metal Rat Hazy IPA has bright orange and lemony notes from the hops and creaminess from the malt that make it taste kind of like oranges in cream! We're excited that this brew provides a real taste of place and a unique cultural connection. 

Founder Oscar Wong and President Leah Ashburn will be handing out lucky red envelopes with gifts, ranging from merchandise, gift cards, and some very special surprises to the first 88 visitors (8 is a lucky number in Chinese culture).
