Hi-Wire Brewing to Expand Distribution into Atlanta

Hi-Wire-BrewingHi-Wire Brewing (Asheville, North Carolina) has officially announced that it has signed with Georgia Crown Distributing Co. to expand its distribution network into the Atlanta, Northwest Georgia, and Southwest Georgia areas.

After testing the waters in smaller markets such as Athens, Augusta and Savannah, Hi-Wire Brewing has confidently decided to take a huge leap forward by launching their brand in Atlanta and the remainder of the state of Georgia.  To take full advantage of this opportunity, the brewery will enter the Atlanta market with its “entire portfolio,  including year-round, seasonal, specialty, and sour beers.

“The opportunity to roll out into a major metropolitan area like Atlanta doesn’t come along too often. Hi-Wire will certainly see an incredible boost in its overall sales, but I believe the increased exposure from having a larger and more targeted audience, is the bigger piece of the puzzle.”


– Chris Lutkowski, Director of Sales for Hi-Wire Brewing
