Hi-Wire, Wickles Pickles Announce a Pickle Beer Collaboration

Pickles and beer, an unusual yet oddly beloved pair, unite in this collaboration between two acclaimed innovators within each field  – Dadeville, Alabama-based Wickles Pickles and Asheville, North Carolina’s Hi-Wire Brewing.

“Here in the South, we love our pickles and a nice, cold craft beer, and now we love Hi-Wire Brewing’s Wickles Pickles Beer,” said Will Sims, co-founder of Wickles Pickles alongside his brother, Trey, and their buddy Andy Anderson. “We can’t think of a better combination than our 90-year-old custom blend of spices at work with an award-winning brewery known for fun and approachability.”

Hi-Wire Brewing’s Wickles Pickle Beer (5% ABV) is an easy-drinking sour ale brewed with all the pickle-making ingredients you would expect including cucumbers, dill, coriander, Himalayan salt, and black pepper. Cracking open a can conjures the same tangy aromas that come with twisting the lid off of a pickle jar, while the beer is refreshingly tart with notes of fresh dill and subtle spice reminiscent of Wickles Pickles’ famously sweet, sour, and spicy brine.

“It was a fun challenge bringing Wickles’ unique flavors into a beer,” said Hi-Wire head brewer, Luke Holgate. “While many flavors in pickles clash with beer, we were able to take advantage of Wickles’ bright dill flavor and peppercorn spice to build on a tart ale that’s refreshing and crushable.”

This limited release is rolling out now in four-packs of 16-ounce cans across Hi-Wire’s nine state distribution footprint as well as the brewery’s eight taproom locations. A limited number of cases were also available for shipping directly to consumers in 34 states at shop.hiwirebrewing.com but sold out the day of their release.

Sims said, “We’re truly excited (and thirsty) for this partnership and particularly happy that this ‘Wickedly Delicious’ brew is going to be available just in time for SEC football across Hi-Wire’s growing taproom footprint – CHEERS to that!”
