In July 2015, craft beer drinkers can also enjoy Hi-Wire beer at their Big Top, a 27,000 square foot production facility opening in Biltmore Village, a half mile from the Biltmore Estate.

Hi-Wire Brewing Announces Australian Bushfire Relief Fundraising Event

Beer is good. And beer that does good is even better. That’s why on Friday, Feb. 7, Hi-Wire Brewing is donating 100% of proceeds from every glass of Strongman Coffee Milk Stout to support the strong men and women in Australia who are working to fight fires, repair homes, heal people, and rescue wildlife from the devastating bushfires that have been raging across the continent over the past few months. Nearly 25 million acres – an area a little smaller than the state of Tennessee – have been burned and more than a billion animals have been killed in these fires, but unfortunately, they’re not yet fully extinguished. Shocked and heartbroken, Hi-Wire wanted to do its part to provide relief, so it joined forces with 10+ North American breweries for the #BEERFORBUSHFIRERELIEF event coordinated by Brunswick Beer Collective out of Australia. All four Hi-Wire Brewing taprooms – Asheville Big Top, Asheville South Slope, Durham, and Knoxville – will be participating in the event, and donations raised will be distributed evenly between the Australian Red Cross and Wildlife Victoria.
