Hi-Wire Brewing 12 Pack Collaboration

hi wire brewing

Consumers will be pleased with the unique styles available in the Hi-Wire Collaboration 12-pack. Hi-Wire Brewing’s co-owner, Chris Frosaker, notes “It's been a while since we have been able to do any collab beers, so when we saw some openings at our production brewery, we wanted to go big. We invited NOLA, Hardywood, and Holy City because of the similarity between all of us. All four breweries are about the same size volume-wise, make very approachable year-round beers, and all have adventurous specialty programs. It was a blast making beer with three companies who approach the beer world in such a similar way as we do."

Aging beer on whole roasted local WNC peanuts presented a unique challenge in 2012, when Catawba brewed their first 3-barrel batch of PB&J. Five years later and now slated for 4-state distribution, this one-of-a-kind beer has inspired some innovative engineering and a proprietary brewing process.

Small Batch releases have become a weekly event at Catawba Brewing, but their new Small Batch Milk Stout is no ordinary beer.
