I loved the whole vibe of this place. The atmosphere was awesome, just like the selection of beer. There were even a lot of choices to sit and being right next to a pizza place and an ice cream place were definitely pluses. So many people were ordering pizzas right next to us, and it smelled delicious. The bartenders were very friendly and knowledgeable. I absolutely will be back!

I enjoyed the spacious room, the trivia seemed cool and interesting and the beers we tried were pretty tasty. However, as far as selection goes, it is a bit lacking in variance. They lack in the darker beers, with no porters or stouts and only one decent brown ale.

[went on Monday: $7 liter drafts!!] Me & my girlfriend had such an amazing time here!
I’ve been looking around Durham to find a brewery with multiple-fun indoor/outdoor games, I finally found it: a 8/9-ft shuffleboard, MULTIPLE corn hole boards, & 2 ping pong tables (my girlfriend whooped me…).
Outside of the friendly bartenders, their in-house craft beers were solid, there were plenty of tables to sit at, & the parking was both plentiful & easy.
We had the ‘Pink Lemonade’ sour beer, which was okay. I really enjoyed their ‘Double Hazy IPA’! It was smooth & not overly bitter from the get-go, with a sweet finish.

Great beer and amusing times surrounded by interesting people. You'll never know what you'll walk into, but the charm and the great staff are a constant you can hold on to. I've long lost count of the liters I've had here, but I doubt I'm close to done.

Many taps and styles to fit any taste. NA options available:)
Comfortable inside and outside areas. Good food next door (try the pizza)

We visited from out of town and this place was just a gem!! I did yoga in the morning and actually brought my family back later that evening to hang out! Zane behind the bar was so personable and gave great service! Highly recommend!

Absolutely love this place. I come to Durham every month or so for work and a colleague recommended Hi Wire. Great chill environment and all the staff have been great, especially the girl bartender? Think her name was Dani maybe? Either way, I look forward to coming back and am hoping to catch the morning Yoga soon!

JM, Dannie, Rachel even the Manager Kelly always willing to ask questions no hesitation either when I asked and I asked a lot since this is new to me. Would Recommend this location for friends or even work events!

Expansive collection including some guest taps also. Dog friendly inside and outside with games. Couple of places to grab a bite to eat right next door along with ice cream across the quad.

5 OUT OF 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I'm declaring this summer, the summer for Brews and sunshine. Seriously, y'all. I'm enjoying patio and beer season. I visited Hi-Wire Brewing this past week and fell in love quickly with the Pink Lemonade Sour Beer. It was light, refreshing and had just the right amount of bite to it. We played corn hole, I met some new friends and went somewhere new for the first time. I'll definitely be back!

5 stars mainly for the huge space that can easily accommodate large groups and the fact that you can order food from next door and they will deliver it to your table at Hi Wire (both the pizza place and J Lights are pretty good). The beer is decent.

Love the new space! It saves me a long drive to the mountains now! We love how pet friendly they are.

Hi-Wire is an amazing place for all occasions. They have fantastic brews, ample seating, great games, local food within walking distance if you need a bite, and they're dog friendly! the bartenders are very helpful with recommendations and helping you choose one of their many brews. I've had so many great nights at Hi-Wire, and I look forward to many more!

What a great start to a long weekend This brewery was amazing and the staff gave the best recommendations, for a non beer drinker like myself I can say that I like both of the beers I had, not only was the staff great the environment as a whole was very inviting everyone was polite I love the entire experience and I can say that I will be back because I have to try one of those pizzas that I kept seeing pass by me, looking for a great way to wind down after a long work week that will allow your fur babies and family to enjoy this is the place check them out you will enjoy it.
