    Great find! I'm really looking forward to it.

    But I might have to go grab a six for myself before then.

      Sad news:
      Asheville, NC​ - Hi-Wire Brewing will be releasing a new year-round flagship this January in place of their Prime-Time Session Pale Ale. Customers will now be able to enjoy Hi-Wire Brewing’s latest creation and year-round flagship, Lo-Pitch Juicy India Pale Ale (4.9% ABV), scheduled to hit shelves and both of Hi-Wire’s taprooms by early January 2017.
      [...]
      The Prime-Time Session Pale Ale will always have a place in the heart of the Hi-Wire Brewing team, but its production will be severely dwindled by the end of 2016.
      I had looked in several nearby grocery stores including three Harris Teeters before going online for more info and I never saw it; or any Hi-Wire beers for that matter, despite the claim that they're available all across NC.

      (Snide side comment: It seems that brewers like to boast of drinkability when describing their beers. Shouldn't we be able to assume that?)

        I think it's a code word for "makes you want to drink a lot of them!" which is taboo in the promote-responsible-drinking era. "Session" beers are the newest version of it.

        None of them result in much rideability as far as I can tell; I seem to lose all uni skills after a beer or two.

          Thanks for the clarification.

          With boutique beers at $10 for a six-pack, I'm one and done no matter what they call it.

              • So you don't have to do what I just did, the caption: "Riders on extra-tall unicycles steady each other during the St. Paul Winter Carnival's Vulcan Victory Torchlight Parade on Saturday night in downtown St. Paul. The carnival concludes today." Looks like a good time!

                  Yep! That was Twin Cities Unicycle Club. The giraffe riders look terrified because the cobblestones were pretty treacherous. The tiny rider in the pink sleeves on the left is my 8 year-old daughter. I'm back there somewhere, but out of sight.

                    • In case you didn't catch Saturday Night Live on 4/14/2018 or missed this there was a unicyclist rolling up to cross Chester Ave in Pasadena during the establishing shot of a skit.

                      • Hi-Wire Prime-Time is no more, but I've been curious for some time about radlers and just this evening happened to notice the artwork on T.W Pitchers' Grapefruit and Blood Orange Radler. (Bought a six but haven't tried one yet!)

                        • Here in Belgium we have a famous beer, La Chouffe.

                          And here's the Chouffe Blonde:

                            Wow! Got to get me one of those! Their website map says they may be available at the Safeway near my office, or the even nearer BevMo!

                              I bought some last week during a day trip to Brussels. And then realized they have it in my local mini market downstairs from my Paris apartment!

                              It's not only a cool bottle... it's also a good beer!
