Explore Highland beer during first Brewmaster Dinner


“There are good memories around beer. Craft beer, to me, makes better memories.” 
– Chuck Whitehead, vice president of business development for Highland Brewing Company

Our first Brewmaster Dinner is sure to be a memorable event.

Attendees will enjoy four Highland beers paired with a menu crafted by Pinehurst Chef de Cuisine Shawn Aoki.

The four-course meal gets underway at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 25 in the Crystal Room.

During the event, a representative from Highland, the state’s oldest craft brewery, will be on hand to talk about each beer.

“We’ll explain how it’s made, what’s in it and the taste profile,” Whitehead said. “You’ll learn a little bit about the brewing process and the history of some of the different styles of beer.”

During the dinner, participants also will learn about how to properly pair beer with food.

“It’s similar to wine in that you wouldn’t necessarily want a big, heavy beer with big, heavy food,” Whitehead said. “Beer is every bit as complex as wine; that’s what a lot of people don’t understand,” he said.

Here’s a look at the beers attendees will drink during the dinner:

Gaelic Ale  Whitehead called the Gaelic Ale one of Highland’s most balanced beers. “It’s an amber ale with a little bit of a twist, which is making it a little Scottish in style. It has a delicate hop flavor with a real rich malty, body, which is kind of unusual. There’s a slight touch of caramel sweetness.”

St. Terese’s Pale Ale  Whitehead said this beer gets its delicate aroma from the process of dry hopping. Golden pale in color, it has a slightly malty body balanced by an assertive American hop flavor.

Black Mocha Stout  Whitehead said this robust beer has “rich toasted chocolate flavors.” It’s black in color with a very malty body.

Kashmir English-style IPA  A full-bodied India Pale Ale, this beer is golden in color with a moderate malty character. The full hop flavor is true to the classic ale that has traveled on sailing ships from England to India.

Cost is $50 plus tax and gratuity. Purchase tickets online at

As February winds down, we can’t help but get excited about what’s coming in March.

Here are four reasons you should be looking forward to next month too.


1. SPRING is March 20.

If you’re counting down (I know we are) that’s only 24 more days!

What’s so great about spring in Pinehurst? Blooming azaleas, Carolina blue skies, the smell of Pine trees. We could keep going, but you get the point. It’s always beautiful in Pinehurst, but spring is exceptionally lovely.

Neither have we, but it’s happening May 2.

Three Dog Night will take the stage from 5 to 7 p.m. during the 3rd annual Pinehurst Concours d’ Elegance,  a vintage car showcase of rare and pristine collector automobiles.

They recently added “Heart of Blues” and the a cappella ballad “Prayers of the Children” to their set list, proving they have plenty of songs left after four decades on the road.

The Grammy-nominated band, which had 21 consecutive Top 40 hits, has performed more than 2,200 shows since 1986, adding new fans to its legion of faithful followers.

Admission to the show is included with the purchase of a Pinehurst Concours ticket, which are on sale now for $26.89. Click here to purchase.
