Hi-Wire Unveils New Beers for April 2019
(Asheville, NC) – Spring is calling, and the team at Hi-Wire Brewing has the perfect line-up of beers to help you transition to warmer weather. Hi-Wire will be kicking off the month of April with three beer releases including the Hi-Wire Rosé Ale, a SMASH Pilsner collaboration with The Black Abbey Brewing, and Haze Sesh, a hazy session IPA collaboration with Oskar Blues.
Hi-Wire will be releasing its first-ever Rosé Fruit Ale (4.6% ABV) that will hit the shelves on April 19th. Sweet, tart, and refreshing, the Hi-Wire Rosé blends notes of grape and cranberry in this bright spritzy ale. Inspired by a classic Rosé wine, this beer can be perfectly-paired with any spring activity. Available in 6-packs of 12oz cans, this beer will see full distribution in Hi-Wire’s footprint and will be available throughout spring and summer.
Longtime friends Hi-Wire and The Black Abbey had so much fun making SMASH Pils I, they decided to do it again. SMASH Pils II (5% ABV) is a single malt, single hop pilsner, that is equally bright as it is crisp, with subtle hits of Callista hops. This classic, easy-drinking beer will be available mid-April in 6-packs of 12oz cans and will see limited distribution.
Finally, Hi-Wire is rounding out the month of April with an exciting collaboration with their buds at Oskar Blues Brewery. Tapping into the “haze-craze”, Hi-Wire & Oskar Blues have joined forces to make Haze-Sesh (4.9% ABV), a hazy session IPA double dry-hopped with Cashmere and Wataku. Notes of lemon-lime, tropical fruit, and melon from the Wataku and Cashmere hops give this crushable beer a bright and juicy citrus punch. Available in 4-packs of 16oz cans, this beer will see limited distribution beginning Friday, April 19th.
