This place was okay. The servers could have been a bit friendlier or less busy. The place had some solid beers and some not so solid. We ordered 6 different pints and 3 were great and the other 3 were not so great. Overall vibe was nice the servers just seemed real busy.

Happened upon this brewery completely on accident after leaving the Wicked Weed Funkatorium. Just so happened it was also $2 Tuesdays with $2 pints! I absolutely loved the vibe of the place and the beer was excellent (not to mention $2!). I really loved the open wall facing the street with a bar to sit and people watch. Great place!

This is the smaller tasting room of the two Hi-Wire places in town. A bar with about 8 stools is located in the middle of what looks like an old garage that was turned into a brewery. A few tables adorn the place. Concrete floors and a general feeling of dinginess is around but you know it is clean enough for brewing. There were about 15 beers on draft. The several pints I had on two separate visits were good. Service was a bit slow, despite the smaller crowds.
