Asheville, NC – Work is progressing on our new $3.1 million production home (and for the awesome kick-off party to come). Once we make “the big switch” and our year-round and seasonals beers are being produced at the new brewery, we’ll refocus our Downtown Asheville brewery towards production of unique specialty beers. Well, why wait until the new brewery’s ready, right? We’re getting the ball rolling early with an entirely new series – Hop Circus.
The Hop Circus IPA Series will feature a new IPA every few months. Our first release is a single hop, session IPA brewed 100% with simcoe hops. At 4.8% ABV and 40 IBUs, this first release in the Hop Circus IPA Series will perfectly combine drinkability with classic hop character.
We’ll be bottling these guys in 22-oz. bottles, which should be available at most craft beer bottle shops throughout North Carolina, as well as at Hi-Wire’s Downtown Asheville tasting room. A keg or two will also show up at a few select bars around the state, as well as at our Downtown tasting room.
To celebrate the release, we’re doing something different. Hi-Wire’s tasting room is well-known by locals, among other reasons, for its $2.50 Tuesdays, when pints of Hi-Wire beers start at only $2.50. So on Tuesday, February 3rd, beginning at 4pm when the tasting room opens, we’ll not only be having a $2.50 Tuesday, we’ll also be releasing Hop Circus, Volume 1 in bottles and on-draft – and taking $1 off all Hop Circus pints! We’ll have FREE Hi-Wire pint glasses for the first 50 people who purchase a bottle of Hop Circus, Volume 1 – with a five bottle limit per person.
