Approaching their one year anniversary of brewing one off 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 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.
