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.

This review is for the Biltmore Village location.

Broad open warehouse style space, with a long bar, open high tables, and then rows of picnic tables before the roped off brewing area. There's an outdoor space I didn't check out.

The vibe was subdued while I was there - but it was cozy, comfortable, and the bartenders were friendly an helpful. 15 beers on tap, and $8 gets you nice sized pours of four of them. I was impressed by the consistent quality of the brews - all solid, no clunkers, and lots of interesting options (the habanero porter comes to mind). And feel free to bring in some food from the pizza place next door.

On the outskirts of Asheville but highly recommend a visit when in town.

Not a bad selection, and really great service. I wanted to buy a glass that wasn't in their display, so they sold me one from behind the bar. It was stiflingly warm, however, and quite smokey as the wind was blowing the cigarette smoke from the outdoor seating right inside. Very dog-friendly however; even saw some dogs enjoying a bit of their owners' pints.
