Hi-Wire Brewing is bottling up the last little bit of summer with September beer releases that are sure to have beer drinkers itching for a few more days of warm weather. Customers can expect a line-up of tart, hoppy, fruity, and refreshing beers to round out the end of a sun-baked season.
Back by popular demand, Hi-Wire Brewing will be releasing Pink Drink (4.2% ABV), an ultra crushable tart wheat ale with lemongrass & raspberries; simple, refreshing, & pink. A kettle sour with the perfect balance of raspberry fruit sweetness & fresh candied-lemon aroma from lemongrass. Available beginning Friday, September 7 in both of Hi-Wire Brewing’s taprooms in 4-packs of 16oz cans, this beer will see limited distribution the second week of September.
After taking home the award for “7th Best IPA” in the country by Paste Magazine, Hi-Wire Brewing wanted to put their Hazy&Juicy&Hoppy&Fresh Batch #1 (7.5% ABV) in the rotation one last time before summer came to a close. This double dry-hopped New England-style IPA is super hazy, juicy, and chock full of bright aroma, finishing super silky and smooth.

Available in 4-packs of 16oz cans, this beer will only be available in Hi-Wire Brewing’s two taprooms beginning Saturday, September 8 at 12pm.
