Asheville, NC ­ ​Sunday, September 18th at 1:00pm, Hi­-Wire Brewing will be releasing Batch #7

of their Single Barrel Series, as well as a small batch wild ale called Sour Heady Porter for $15

per bottle. The bottle release will start at 1:00pm at their South Slope Speciality Facility that

solely produces Sour and Wild Ales.

Batch #7 of the Single Barrel Series is an Oak Fermented Mosaic Wheat Ale with

Brettanomyces (5% ABV). This easy­-drinking wild wheat ale, with notes of juicy tropical fruit & funk

, was brewed with a single, 1lb per barrel, hop addition of Mosaic Hops. This beer was oak

fermented in a red wine barrel with a specific blend of brettanomyces that exhibits tropical fruit

flavors before being bottle conditioned.

The other bottle being released is a one­-off ­batch called Sour Heady Porter, an Oak Fermented

Wild Ale with Raspberries (8.5% ABV). Sour Heady Porter is the brainchild of one of our

cellarman, John Hedberg (affectionately known as Heady), and Specialty Brewer John Parks. 

This complex sour porter, with notes of bright raspberry, oaky red wine, dark chocolate, and a

deep acidity, displays characteristics of a raspberry porter with the added complexity of wild

yeast and lactobacillus. It was oak fermented in a red wine barrel for 8 months before being

bottle conditioned.

Single Barrel Series releases are Hi­-Wire Brewing’s build up to their wild & sour program's

official launch, scheduled to happen this fall. Production of these beers are limited to 120 bottles

each and will not see distribution. Join Hi­-Wire at 1:00pm on September 18 to get your hands on

these special, limited beers.
