Come celebrate the love of beer and mountains with Highland Brewing Company, Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy and for the release of the seasonal Clawhammer Oktoberfest, named for Clawhammer Mountain. Help us protect the world's oldest mountains by raising awareness and raising a pint in honor of all the hard work that these organizations do throughout the year protecting land, clean water and conserving unique plant life and animal habitat. $1.00 per pour from the beer sales of the evening will be going towards protecting the beautiful mountains around us. For more information on how you can get involved, click here.

Clawhammer Oktoberfest is a lightly colored, but toasty, rich and full-bodied Marzen style lager, brewed with traditional German malt and the finest noble hops. A spicy hop finish and aroma balance out the abundance of malt flavor.

Clawhammer Mountain - This peak is just over 4,000 feet in elevation and is famous for an abundance of world-class single-track mountain biking trails. It is also home to headwaters of both the Davidson River & the Mills River. SAHC will be leading a hike up Clawhammer on Saturday, October 1st.

Lagerhosen plays a fre, live show at the Clawhammer Release Party at Highland Brewing Company located in Ashevilel, NC.With natural Bavarian influence, the 5-piece Munich style band, along with special guests, will perform for one of Asheville’s premier annual summer community party events. Lagerhosen (literally translated as “beerpants”) will play Octoberfest polkas’, waltzes and drinking songs from 7-9pm.

Fans and audience members are encouraged to dress up in their favorite traditional Lederhosen costumes. For crafty mountain locals who want to look the part , a “Lester-hosen” design is simply shorts, a white shirt, suspenders and hiking boots, topped with a fedora or hat of choice.

Lagerhosen, also features ‘Tall Paul’ Leech on sousaphone, Lois ‘Polka-hontis’ Jolly on trombone, Johanna Domka on trumpet, and David “Sticks” McNabb on drums. Special guests include vocalists, more horns and Club Mayhem, our dance troupe of pretty girls and handsome guys. Conceived in 2013, the group has performed at several area clubs and events, notably the Asheville 2015 Octoberfest and Sierra Nevada’s massive opening celebration last fall. The group looks forward to a fun summer frolic and will encourage “beer cheers” from the crowd through-out the event. Eins, Zwei, g’Suffa!
