North Carolina-based brewery Hi-Wire Brewing will take root in Nashville’s South Gulch neighborhood in early 2023 as the anchor tenant at Modera Gulch, a new mixed-use building with luxury apartments and 20,000-square feet of commercial space.
It will be the eleventh location (810 Division Street) for the nearly 10-year old Asheville beer maker, which is also opening taprooms in Charlotte, North Carolina; Birmingham, Alabama; and Cincinnati, Ohio over the next 12 months. Meanwhile, there are already seven taprooms currently open across the southeastern U.S.
Nashville’s Hi-Wire taproom, at more than 5,500 square feet, is big enough for 250 people indoors and another 50 on a covered outdoor patio. Like the brand’s other locations, a bright, industrial interior accented with neon lights and murals will include family-friendly games like soccer pool (imagine giant pool tables on the ground with Astroturf) and ping pong. The taproom is open to all ages and leashed pets.
Hi-Wire isn’t new to the Nashville beer scene. For more than five years, stores across Nashville have sold it. Now 24 taps will flow with Hi-Wire’s full line-up of approachable beers, including the popular Hi-Pitch Mosaic IPA, Lo-Pitch Hazy IPA, and Pink Lemonade Session Sour Ale.
The booming Gulch neighborhood recently scored a whimsical stop for ice cream, sundaes, (spiked) milkshakes, coffee, cocktails, and breakfast sandwiches at The Nashville Sundae Club (335 11th Ave S., Nashville). The flagship of Nightscape entertainment facility also announced its April opening in the Gulch neighborhood in the former 12th & Porter space.
