Along with the 144, Twin Leaf offers a wide selection of house beers including the Dark Matter Oatmeal Stout and the White Noise Belgian Wit among others. After Twin Leaf we will leave the South Slope and head down into the Historic Biltmore Village to tour Hi-Wire’s large scale production brewhouse known as the Big Top. This circus themed brewery makes a true year round lager as well as a large variety of ales such as the Hi-Pitch IPA. Hi-Wire has a canning line and conveniently packages their beer in 6 packs for wide distribution. The last brewery of the tour is French Broad River which is one of the oldest breweries in the city. During our visit to French Broad you will catch tunes from local Reggae favorites Chalwa who perform every Sunday!
