Drink this every 3,000 miles. Hi-Wire 10W-40 Imperial Stout

Hi-Wire 10W-40 Imperial Stout

Expect this one to pour like motor oil. Meet Hi-Wire 10W-40 Imperial Stout.

This decadent imperial stout is brewed with fresh vanilla beans, dark chocolate from Asheville local French Broad Chocolates, and Organic Dynamite Roasting Company coffee beans. The sum of the parts means one big decadent way to drink your dessert.

The beer truly delivers on flavor. Coffee, chocolate and vanilla in a big stout is heaven to us, but what we can’t get over is the branding. Sure it would be easy to find some creature from Greek mythology, or an obscure Shakespearian phrase, combine with some comic book art, and launch the beer. Absolutely nothing wrong with that. In this case, when we say this beer pours like motor oil, we have a can that follows suit. This release is just the start of something new for Hi-Wire Brewing.

…coffee accentuates the cocoa and adds slight roast to balance out the vanilla in this dessert beer.

Hi-Wire 10W-40 Imperial Stout became available in 16 ounce cans starting January 6th.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Cocoa Nibs, Vanilla Beans, Coffee)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: 1/6/16

8% ABV

Hi-Wire Brewing adds Ohio

Asheville, North Carolina based Hi-Wire Brewing is adding distribution to the state of Ohio this month.

The brewery has tapped Premium Beverage Supply out of Columbus, Ohio to handle distribution.

“The launch of Ohio is an exciting new step for Hi-Wire and North Carolina made beer in general. Ohio is a top-five craft beer state, and its beer drinkers have more commonly been making Asheville a must-visit location. We are honored to be able to “export Asheville” to these amazing beer markets.” – Chris Frosaker Co-owner, Hi-Wire Brewing

Events are scheduled for Cleveland, Toledo, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Dayton, starting February 19th, and running through March 3rd.

More amazing artwork from Hi-Wire Brewing in new 12 pack

Hi-Wire Collaboration Pack

Asheville, North Carolina’s Hi-Wire Brewing has been absolutely killing it with the artwork. Don’t believe us? See Hi-Wire 10W-40 Imperial Stout. Coming in February is some more awesome artwork, found in the Hi-Wire Collaboration 12-Pack. If you’ve ever used a can of spray paint, or stepped foot in the paint section of a hardware store, you’ll find something familiar with this branding.

It has been a while since Hi-Wire has been able to collaborate with other breweries, thanks to the time it has taken to get settled in with their new production facility. When time opened up on the production schedule, they opted to go big.

The mixed pack features Hi-Wire teamed up with NOLA Brewing, Holy City Brewing (Charleston, SC), and Hardywood Park Craft Brewery (Richmond, VA), each creating three unique beers.

NOLA Brewing’s collaboration, Pimm’s Berliner Weisse, is based on the New Orlean’s favorite Pimm’s Cup drink. A Berliner Weisse brewed with juniper berries, orange peel, and cucumber. 4.2% ABV

Hardywood Park Craft Brewery and Hi-Wire created Oatmeal Brown Ale, brewed with honey and black currants, 5% ABV.

Holy City co-owner Jeff Moreadith is a lover of lighter beers, as well as an Asheville resident. Together, they created Carolina Coastal Black Rye Lager using Seashore Black Rye, a malt grown outside Charleston, South Carolina.

The 12-pack will be rounded out with Hi-Wire’s flagship beers: Hi-Pitch Mosaic IPAHi-Wire Lager, and Hi-Wire Gose.

Look for Hi-Wire Collaboration 12-pack throughout the brewery’s entire distribution footprint in mid-February, 2017.
