Hi-Wire Brewing (Asheville, NC) has announced the location of their new, 26,000 square foot production facility, slated to open in July, 2015. The new facility is located in Biltmore Village, directly behind Appalachian Vintner at Two Huntsman Place.
“We were super excited, back in late 2014, when we placed an order for our sparkling new dream brewhouse from Europe,” stated Adam Charnack, co-owner of Hi-Wire Brewing. “We didn’t want to jump the gun, though, on announcing too many details about our future operation at that time…simply because we didn’t have all the answers. Now that our real estate is secured, loan closed, construction underway, and brewhouse ready to ship, it’s time to tell the world about our latest pride and joy!”
Hi-Wire will call the new digs the Biltmore “Big Top.” Anyone who has been to Asheville knows that the place to be is downtown. Finding a big enough buliding less than two miles from the current downtown location is extremely lucky. Many craft breweries have to settle for a new facility many miles from the original spot.
The new 30 barrel brewhouse is slated to arrive in April. Hi-Wire’s Biltmore “Big Top” will be able to produce 55,000 barrels (1.7 million gallons annually). It will house a second tap room with outdoor seating.
