Taking home the Gold Medal at the 2016 Great American Beer Festival in the German-Style Maerzen beer-style category, customers will be able to enjoy Hi-Wire Brewing’s Zirkusfest Oktoberfest (6% ABV) . Zirkusfest is a traditional Maerzen that boasts all the flavors one wants in a rich Oktoberfest lager without the heavy finish. Look to taste biscuity and honey flavors that fade into a dry finish.


Coming out of New Orleans, Urban South Brewery, introduce beer lovers the Hurricane cocktail. Hurricane Gose (6% ABV) is a bright, sweet, tart, and refreshing fruit bomb. With 30lbs per barrel of passion fruit, cherries, oranges, and pineapple, the beer pulls no punches as this summer crusher will get you primed for a good time.

For the fourth year in a row, Hi-Wire Brewing has partnered with the French Broad Riverkeeper Beer Series, presented by MountainTrue, to create a limited-release beer where a portion of the proceeds from the sales supports the work of the French Broad Riverkeeper, who works to protect the French Broad River watershed. This year Hi-Wire Brewing will be releasing a Blood Orange India Pale Ale (5.3% ABV). This easy drinking IPA delivers 12.5lbs per barrel of blood orange paired with tropical El Dorado and Lemon Drop hops that dance on the simple malt bill.

Hi-Wire Brewing’s award-winning beers can be found on draft and in bottles across North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Ohio, and Kentucky. Take a look at all of their beers here!
