Approaching their one year anniversary of brewing oneoff and sour beers at the revamped
South Slope Specialty Brewery, HiWire Brewing has hit their stride and is building towards
more frequent releases from their wild ale and sour program. To celebrate, HiWire will be
releasing Batch #5 of their Single Barrel Series, Saturday, July 9 at 12pm at their South Slope
location | 197 Hilliard Ave.
HiWire 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
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 &

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
HiWire at noon on July 9 to get your hands on these special, limited beers.
