imageFrom Hi-Wire Brewing:

Asheville, NC ​­ Hi­-Wire Brewing will release the third and fourth batches of their limited Single

Barrel Series, Saturday, June 11 at 12:00 p.m. at the South Slope Speciality Brewery | 197

Hilliard Ave. Almost one year ago, Hi­-Wire Brewing transitioned their downtown Asheville

brewery into a sour and wild ale facility, with a small portion of production 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


Batch #3 ​is a 4.7% ABV Oak Fermented Berliner Weisse with Brettanomyces. This wheat ale

was first soured with lactobacillus in the kettle before undergoing fermentation in a white wine

barrel with German ale yeast and bottle conditioned with brettanomyces. This berliner weisse

maintains the traditional character of the style, while oak fermentation & brett adds depth and

complexity to this light, tart wheat beer. Bottles will be $15 each, limit 6 bottles per person.

Batch #4​is a 5.5% ABV Oak Fermented Tart Saison w/ Passion Fruit & Brettanomyces. This

tart saison was first soured with lactobacillus in the kettle before undergoing a mixed

fermentation in a red wine barrel on passion fruit. Dank tropical notes of passion fruit blend with

subtle brett funk & earthy oak character in this vibrant, refreshingly tart beer. Bottles will be $18

each, limit 4 per person.

Production of these beers are limited to 120 bottles each and will not see distribution. With their

sour program fully under way, Hi­-Wire is eager to bring unique and experimental single batches

to the market. Join them at noon on June 11 to get your hands on these special, limited beers.
