Product Showcase

Highland Brewing Company has announced the release of Slow Crush Tart Spritz Ale this May, as the latest addition to the North Carolina brewery’s year-round offerings.

The new beer comes out as the regional brewery celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Slow Crush is a sessionable take on kettle soured beers, and the brewery’s first to launch in a 16-oz. can format.

Inspired by the popular cocktail Aperol Spritz, Slow Crush features ingredients that mirror the Italian aperitif — botanicals like gentian root, cinchona bark and hibiscus flowers. These ingredients are accentuated by the character from flaked rye and citrus-forward American hops like Citra and Amarillo.

Slow Crush is 5% ABV and 20 IBUs, the company says, with refreshing acidity.

Slow Crush will be available in four-pack cans and on draft throughout Highland’s distribution footprint across the Southeast.
