Asheville, NC — Approaching their one year anniversary of brewing one-off and sour beers at the revamped South Slope Specialty Brewery, Hi-Wire Brewing has hit their stride and is building towards more frequent releases from their wild ale and sour program. To celebrate, Hi-Wire will be releasing Batch #5 of their Single Barrel Series, Saturday, July 9 at 12pm at their South Slope location | 197 Hilliard Ave.
Hi-Wire Brewing took a leap of faith one year ago and started experimenting with sours and wild ales. In addition to their sour and wild ale program, a small portion of production is dedicated to producing a different line of limited speciality beers which they are calling the Single Barrel Series. All Single Barrel Series releases are small batches fermented 100% in oak barrels with mixed yeast cultures, bottle conditioned with brettanomyces, and sold in cork and caged 750ml bottles.
Batch #5 of the Single Barrel Series is a single malt, single hop Imperial IPA (9.5% ABV) brewed and aged in a white wine barrel with Brettanomyces for 8 months. Dank tropical fruit & bright citrus notes from Citra hops blend perfectly with earthy brett funk & oak in this big complex beer with a smooth, warming finish. Bottles will be $14.
Production of these beers are limited to 120 bottles each and will not see distribution. Join Hi-Wire at noon on July 9 to get your hands on these special, limited beers.
