Hi-Wire Brewing Rolls Out Launch of its Sour & Wild Ale Program

Hi-Wire Brewing will officially be rolling out its Sour & Wild Ale program Saturday, November 19, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. at their South Slope Speciality Brewery with a bottle release of its two first sours, including a Sour Blonde Ale and Wild Rye IPA.

Over the course of the past year, Hi-Wire’s South Slope Specialty Brewery has fully transitioned from brewing a wide variety of one-time-release ales and lagers to brewing exclusively sour and wild beers. After one year of experimenting with limited releases from their Single Barrel Series and one-off batches of wild-ales, Hi-Wire Brewing is excited to announce the official release of its first two sours that will be hitting all four of the states they distribute in on Monday, November 21.

The Sour Blonde Ale (7.65% ABV) was aged in American oak red wine barrels before being bottle conditioned. It displays aromas of citrus rind and hay from brettanomyces with faint berry, pineapple, and oak. This classic American-style sour exhibits notes of bright acidic stone and tropical fruit, subtle brett funk with a clean, dry finish. Bottles will be $17.

The Wild Rye IPA (6.75%) is a lively, tropical India Pale Ale blending rye spice, dank mango, and pine notes from American hops, with the rustic character of house brett. Aged for 6 months before being bottle conditioned, this wild ale has a medium body that finishes with a soft bitterness and lasting notes of tropical fruit & funk. Bottles will be $13.

In conjunction with the release of the Sour & Wild Ale program, Hi-Wire Brewing has launched the RingMaster V.I.P. Beer Club, a year-long limited membership program that provides exclusive sour and wild ale beer releases to members. Membership is $200 and includes the following:
