Hi­Wire Brewing Announces Inaugural ​ How do you LagerFest? ​Bringing back the L word.  
Hi­Wire Brewing, known for its approachable beer, will be hosting its Inaugural ​ How do you  LagerFest?​  on Saturday, May 14th from 12:00pm ­ 8:00pm at their Big Top location ­ 2  Huntsman Place.  
Lagers used to be categorized as anything but craft. Made for red plastic cups and green bottles,  these fizzy beers were for novice beer drinkers only. Today, the craft has been perfected and the  demand is high.     Finely fermented at cool temperatures, the slower process (approximately four to eight weeks)  makes lagers worth the wait. Most lagers’ delicate profiles don’t allow beer off­flavors anywhere  to hide, making them challenging styles to brew. The light complexity of lagers are  straightforward and what everyone craves on a nice spring day. So...step away from the ale, drop  the hops, stop with the sours, and join Asheville and regional craft breweries Saturday, May 14th  as they celebrate all things lager.    
How do you LagerFest?​  is an opportunity for Hi­Wire Brewing and other regional breweries to  showcase, what has become, a misunderstood beer. The event will highlight the wonderful world  of lagers in a laid back and casual festival setting. Hi­Wire will be pouring 10 of its speciality  lagers and releasing its Spring Maibock (7% ABV) for the event. Other breweries will include The  Olde Mecklenburg Brewery, Duck Rabbit, Brevard Brewing, Sierra Nevada, Foothills, Brooklyn  Brewery, Highland Brewing, Smuttynose, Fullsteam, Mother Earth, Burial, Birdsong, Twin Leaf,  and River Rat.     Admission is $8 and includes ​ How do you LagerFest?​  glassware and two beer tokens. Foothills  Local Meats will be grilling up some popular barbeque eats and more beer tokens will be  available for purchase throughout the event. Enjoy your lager as you get down with some  miniature golf, corn hole, and other classic backyard games. Grab your grandpa’s lawn chair and  join us for an afternoon full of lager love. #HowdoyouLagerFest    About Hi­Wire Brewing  Located in Asheville, NC, Hi­Wire Brewing is known for producing approachable and balanced  lagers and ales, most notably Hi­Wire Lager, Prime Time Session Pale Ale, Bed of Nails Brown,  and Hi­Pitch IPA.
