Hi-Wire is another downtown Asheville brewery set in a little warehouse. The exterior well kept with some large windows throughout. As you walk in you walk through some bar tables to get to the actual bar that seats, probably, 16-18 people. The space is open with the brewing equipment to the left of the bar, a small operation. There was a good sized crowd in the darkish bar the night I visited. 9 or 10 tap handles adorn the wall behind the bar with 6 House brews and a few guest taps.

I was immediately waited on when I found a spot at the bar and ordered, asking for a water as well. A roll of the eyes and an exasperated response informed me that I had to get my own water over in the corner somewhere. I ordered the IPA and my buddy ordered something else, both of which were mediocre at best and forgettable. As a matter of fact about halfway through both our beers we decided to up and leave. The bartender, again, seemed like it was a hassle to do her job as I payed.

The spot is decent, the beer passable, but the service left much to be desired. I would give the beer another shot if on tap at another establishment but I can't see myself returning to the source.

Nice atmosphere. Open front with brewing equipment on the floor with industry decor. Six of their beers (four year rounds and two seasonals) and three guest beers on tap when I was there. Beers are solid line up; I enjoyed the pale ale and IPA. Great place to relax and grab a brew on a summer night.

This place has such a cool vibe. Refurbished warehouse-style space, with a huge bay door that stays open (weather permitting) to give a street view while you are hanging out. A bunch of high-top table seating leading up the a very basic, awesome bar. At the right end of this bar is greatness...a tiny little television hooked up with a retro-video game system, so you can rock out old school Mario and whatever while you drink. Fantastic! Other bar games scattered throughout the establishment. I'm pretty sure I saw a dartboard on the wall, too. The folks behind the bar were awesome and friendly. The beer was very solid, and they had 6 taps flowing while we were there. They have some pretty slick aluminum growlers for beer to go. This place is definitely worth putting on your map of Asheville if you are visiting. Awesome stop!
