Awesomeness: Named North Carolina’s best new brewery by RateBeer

Hi-Wire Brewing taps into Asheville’s brewing and startup ecosystems to create a distinct, scalable and award-winning craft beer brand. With a distribution plan that involved canning and rapid scaling from day one, Hi-Wire Brewing quadrupled capacity in under two years with a second brewhouse and is quickly working toward 50,000 barrels a year production with expanded market reach. The circus-themed brewery is making a move to capitalize on the fast growing lager market.
