BEER HI-WIRE LAGER

GEAR

BEER

Every runner over 21 year old will receive a thirst quenching Hi-Wire beer. 

This true American lager is as approachable as it is delicious, a perfect balance of light Pilsen malt and German hops. Extensively lagered until the beer reaches peak maturity, this lager is your handcrafted option when only a refreshing, light beer will do.

This beer is lagered for 7 weeks to ensure proper flavor and cleanness, much longer than typical craft lagers.

4.6% ABV          22 IBU           2.5 SRM
