HiWire Brewing says “Here’s to you, Asheville!” Good Vibes Fresh Hop Double IPA

On Saturday, August 27th at 6:00pm HiWire Brewing | 2 Huntsman Place | will be releasing a limited number of 22oz bottles of their Good Vibes Fresh Hop Double IPA (9.0% ABV), made with local hops from OB Joyful Hops Farm and malt from local Riverbed Malt House for $15 per bottle.

From supporting nonprofits, or acting as a lead sponsor for local festivals, HiWire Brewing prides itself on being a local business in Asheville, NC. More important, they love giving back to the community that formed them as a brewery. Good Vibes Fresh Hop Double IPA is a ‘thank you’ to the community that has embraced and supported HiWire from the beginning.

This big, fresh hopped IPA, showcases Heritage & Pilsner malt from Asheville’s Riverbend Malt House, and creates the perfect canvas for 15 lbs per barrel of freshly picked Chinook and Cascade hops courtesy of OB Joyful Hops Farm.

Johnathan Parks, HiWire’s Head Specialty Brewer, notes:

working with fresh local ingredients is great. Not only are we helping out local businesses but we get to showcase flavors that really represent Western North Carolina. Brewing a beer with freshly picked hops straight off the vine and 100% local malt is something we can only do once a year during the hop harvest, so this beer is pretty special. I’m looking forward to showing Asheville what our locally grown, fresh hops taste like.

The bottle release will feature local artist, Ian Wilkinson, whose artwork can be seen on the Good Vibes water tower located in the River Arts District as well as the Good Vibes Fresh Hop Double IPA beer label. Ian will be doing a live art demonstration during the bottle release that will be raffled off at the end of the evening. Every individual who purchases a bottle of the Good Vibes Fresh Hop Double IPA beer will automatically receive a raffle ticket. Additional raffle tickets will be for sale for $5. All proceeds from the raffle will go directly to the Asheville Area Arts Council.

Live music from local musicians, Jay & John Moye, will be happening in conjunction with the release from 7pm-10pm. Foothills Local Meats, a company specializing in local and pasture raised meats for retail and wholesale markets, will be serving up fine eats for the event as well.

Come on down, and join HiWire Brewing, Saturday, August 27 at 6:00pm as they raise a glass to celebrate all things local, and even better, all things Asheville!
