Hi-Wire Brewing announces Kentucky taproom

Hi-Wire Louisville Kentucky

Asheville, North Carolina based Hi-Wire Brewing is in the process of building a new taproom in Louisville, Kentucky.

The 5500-square foot space will be located at 642 Baxter Avenue, in Louisville’s Highlands neighborhood – a part of a new mixed-use development. Guests can expect 21 Hi-Wire beer taps spanning year-round beers, seasonals, one-offs and sour ales, 3 taps for wine, and family-friendly activities like soccer pool, table tennis, foosball, and shuffleboard.

“Taprooms are a core revenue stream for our company, especially given our current climate. They create brand ambassadors in those markets. They create jobs and increase wholesale sales in the region,” says Hi-Wire Brewing co-owner Bryna Frosaker.

Hi-Wire Louisville is the brewery’s sixth taproom location and marks just their second location outside of North Carolina. Interesting, this Hi-Wire build is Kentucky’s first out of state brewery to build in the Bluegrass State.

Construction is expected to begin in March 2021.

Hi-Wire Brewing adds Indiana distribution

Hi Wire Brewing Indiana Distribution

Asheville, North Carolina based Hi-Wire Brewing adds Indiana distribution this month. The brewery has signed with Craftroads Beverage.

Hi-Wire’s co-founder Chris Frosaker is a mid-westerner, who always had Indiana in his distribution plans.

As a craft only wholesaler, the partnership with Craftroads follows Hi-Wire’s last several market launches with statewide, independent wholesalers who only focus on high-end craft beer. In fact, the collaboration was born from great relationships formed between Hi-Wire and distributors in nearby states, which led Craftroads Beverage to start the conversation about branching out into Indiana. – Chris Frosaker

Beer drinkers in the Hoosier State will see Hi-Wire’s full lineup of flagships, seasonals, and specialty releases throughout the year.

The first shipment will hit shelves mid-October.

Hi-Wire Brewing releases an online-only blueberry wild ale blend

Hi-Wire A Blend About Blueberries

Like many of the breweries right now, Asheville’s Hi-Wire Brewing has been relying on online sales and relaxed shipping restrictions to make ends meet. Instead of a taproom release of a rare wild ale, these weird times call for an online-only beer release.

Hi-Wire’s sour and wild program continues to impress us. So it’s worth noting there are a small handful of bottles available of this new blend that you don’t even have to get off your couch to buy and try.

A Blend About Blueberries Sour – Single Barrel Batch No. 27 is a blend of spontaneous and non-spontaneous sour blonde ales aged on blueberries. 750-milliliter bottles this blend can be purchased here. You’re stuck at home. Treat yourself.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Blueberries)
Availability: 750ml Bottles. Limited Online Release.
Debut: Late April 2020
