Hi-Wire Single Barrel Dark Saison will be one the brewery’s first entries into their Single Barrel Series on April 1st.
After the new production brewery (The Big Top) was completed last year, Hi-Wire announced that the original South Slope (downtown Asheville) location would become a sour/wild brewery. Early 2016 would reveal what is to come from the change.
Hi-Wire Single Barrel Dark Saison is brewed with dark malts, and aged in oak with Brettanomyces yeast.
“The main purpose of the new series is experimentation,” says Head Specialty Brewer, Johnathan Parks. “These beers are very different from what you are going to see from our larger upcoming wild and sour program.”
Hi-Wire Single Barrel Dark Saison is limited to 120, 750 mililiter bottles. Sold at the brewery’s South Slope tap room at 2pm on April 1st.
