Hi-Wire Tropical Sour debuts at the brewery’s South Slope location in Asheville, North Carolina this weekend.
The wild ale program at Hi-Wire has constantly impressed us at Beer Street Journal. This new release is a “tropical” inspired oak-aged American wild ale, aged on fresh mango, pineapple, and guava.
Hi-Wire Tropical Sour will only be available in 750-milliliter bottles with no distribution at the brewery this weekend.
Milkshake IPA gone big. Pontoon Brewing Triple The Floor is Lava is a boozy follow-up to last year’s popular release.
The Floor is Lava, a milkshake IPA brewed with guava, strawberries, kiwi, and lactose, debuted last summer. The creamy IPA was big on fruit as well as fruity hops.
For the brewery’s anniversary party this week, Pontoon took the original recipe and “imperialized” the base IPA and doubled
tripled the amount of fruit, creating Triple The Floor is Lava.
Pontoon Triple The Floor is Lava is available at the brewery in Sandy Springs, Georgia in 16-ounce cans.
11.8% ABV, 55 IBUs

SweetWater Tropical Lover rolls off the can in Atlanta as a new seasonal in April.
Nick Burgoyne, brewer at SweetWater has been developing this recipe for some time now. He created a low alcohol by volume Berliner Weisse; adding mango, guava, and passionfruit to the beer. The result was something quite tropical and very refreshing.
“When we put test batches on tap at the Woodlands and in our main taproom, people kept commenting on how drinkable and refreshing it was; they loved the tropical flavors. I imagine Tropical Lover will be a hit with folks hanging out on the water all summer, kicking back with a few daytime drinks.” – Nick B.
SweetWater Tropical Lover will be available in 12-ounce cans and draft starting April 7th. Look for a launch party at the brewery on April 19th.
