Hi-Wire Brewing Expands Distribution to Alabama

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Hi-Wire Brewing will be launching distribution in the entire state of Alabama beginning Tuesday, October 15 with roll-out events scheduled through October 17 in Birmingham, Mobile, Montgomery, & Huntsville.

Hi-Wire will be launching Alabama with their entire portfolio, including year-round, seasonal, and specialty beer offerings. For distribution, Hi-Wire has partnered with Alabama Crown Distributing Co., a full-service beverage distributor with wholesale operations in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee, selling imported and domestic spirits, wines, beers, and specialty products.

Chris Morgan, Regional Sales Manager for Hi-Wire Brewing notes “bringing our beers to another state is always exciting! We get to share some of Asheville with new faces in new places and share what makes our beer culture special in the South. Having been a visitor to Alabama for over 20 years it has been a craft beer destination for a long time. I think people will easily warm up to Hi-Wire’s vast offerings, whether it’s an easy-drinking lager, a multitude of IPA’s, or an 8% pastry stout. There is always a thirsty person and a welcoming vibe in the state.”

To celebrate, craft beer drinkers alike will be able to join the owners and sales team of Hi-Wire Brewing at a variety of tap takeovers, beer pairings and other specialty events throughout each market over next week: Here’s a sampling of the events.
