ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Hi-Wire Brewing is set to release three specialty beers this June that are perfect for your summer- stocked-cooler with the first release happening Friday, June 7 in Asheville, North Carolina.
Continuing their popular 10W-40 Imperial Stout series, Hi-Wire Brewing will be releasing 10W aged on Palo Santo wood (8% ABV) in 4-packs of 16oz cans in both their Asheville taprooms on Friday, June 7 at 3pm. Flavors of camp-fired marshmallows, toasted coconut, and orange peel add to this decadent dark chocolate, vanilla, and coffee-rich stout. This beer will see limited distribution in Hi-Wire Brewing’s entire footprint.
Tropical Golden Strong Ale (11.3% ABV), one of the original 22 oz. bomber releases from Hi-Wire Brewing’s specialty program in 2015, is back this summer in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans. This American golden strong ale uses fresh fruit to complement the tropical flavors and aromas present in Citra hops. Papaya, passion fruit and mango are added during secondary fermentation to create a dank, tropical fruit-forward profile. Available the third week of June, this beer will see limited distribution.
Hi-Wire Brewing is rounding out June with a collaboration with long-time friends Homeplace Beer Co. Owner and Head Brewer John Silver of Homeplace returned to the Hi-Wire brew deck (he manned for over two years during his tenure at Hi-Wire Brewing) at their Big Top Production facility to collaborate on an IPA made with local Riverbend Malt and heirloom Jimmy Red corn. The Amaize I.P.A. (6% ABV) hopped with Eureka, Wakatu, and Amarillo lends palpable notes of tropical fruit, citrus, and dankness while the blend of malted and unmalted corn provides a subtle sweetness and creamy backbone to this full-bodied brew. This beer will see limited distribution in Hi-Wire’s footprint and will be available in their taprooms on Friday, June 14.
