Huge selection of beer, all very reasonably priced. Massive inside seating, and about 30-40 seats outside. The campus that it’s part of is really beautiful, so I usually opt to sit outside. They used to have games, including ping pong and “soccer-pool” but alas COVID.

Hi-Wire has a really good selection of beers. Big taproom in the warehouse district of Durham. Easy to get to. Plenty of parking.

At least during the pandemic, some of the best taproom deals I've ever seen. Lovely spot. Just wish they allowed sitting on the lawn in the courtyard (as they did when I first visited).

Went for the first time on 10/18. Was meeting some new friends. Hi-Wire has done a great job of preparing the space for the current pandemic, from touchless payment, to sanitation stations, to appropriate social distancing of the space. The beers were good and will definitely be back soon.

This was my first time at Hi-Wire and I had a great time. They have done a great job of making sure that you practice social distancing while still having a good time with your group. They have a large selection of beers with something for everyone. I would definitely go there again.

Great location to meet up for a beer! Large area within an industrial-like complex that is perfect for social distancing! Their beer selection is pretty big so I'm sure you'll find something that will suit your fancy. The bar staff are super friendly and can help you choose something if you're indecisive.

Hi wire is for sure one of the coolest breweries I’ve ever been to. I was amazed by the covid protocols- they shut down the games, require masks when going up to order, and there’s a ton of space to spread out the tables. There’s easy parking and the ambience and lighting is super warm and inviting. The drinks were perfect and i love how they have 25-30 options. My personal favorite was the horchata. Definitely will be back 💯

Great microbrewery in a large, former factory location with a lawn. Only beer sold inside, but they bring food trucks or you can bring your own food/order in.

Favorite Durham brewery by far. Never had a bad beer here and the atmosphere is nice. There togo selection is also on point. Never can go wrong with the 16oz hi pitches. Rather you want sours or stouts Hiwire has something for you.

Dog friendly. Located right off 147. We had a great time with their great beer selection and local food truck, Trash Talks.

The selection of beer and cider is very good. The staff were friendly. I just wish they had a gluten free beer and more food trucks to choose from.

Amazing beers. Bartender from Kansas City was amazing, friendly, and interesting. Great conversation. Other bartender seemed annoyed. They were showing NFL games on a few TVs as well as a projector inside. Lots of kids and families inside. Good mix of people.

Delicious beer with a wide variety of options. Indoor and outdoor games are a big plus. Plenty of seating means there is usually enough room for groups of all sizes!

The Durham location offers the same quality, delicious beers as the Asheville location with all the fun! This location near the American Tobacco park offers history, a gorgeous fire pit, billiards soccer, and Cornhole. it must be a great place for birthdays because when we were there, people were celebrating a 25th, a 30th, and a 65th birthday. : )

Great beer with a wide selection! It’s a little out from the central downtown area but it’s located in a really cool spot (Golden Belt). It is extremely roomy with plenty of seats and there is space outside. There is also sometimes a food truck though I’ve not tried the food there.

Hi Wire is an excellent addition to the Durham brewing scene. I'm impressed that they chose Durham as the location for their second location and you can tell they're in for the long haul. It's an excellent space, with lots of tables and games, including soccer pool and ping pong. The selection of beer is also exceptional; it's a real brewery, not just a beer hall. With Ponysaurus right nearby, downtown Durham is becoming a great place to drink.

Hi Wire is always a great brewery to visit. Their Durham location has great indoor and outdoor seating. Lots of games inside, and they often have food trucks on weekends or busy days. A great place to hang out while social distancing as well!

Great space. Location a bit odd, but gorgeous rehab. Staff is friendly. Now with covid they are doing all the right things. Very much recommended.

Chris was amazing, friendly, delivered excellent service and recommendations. Described products and provided exemplary customer service to me and my friend. 10/10 will be back, and felt safe and comfortable with the accommodations made during the pandemic.

Went here for the first time last night and had a blast. The venue is amazing, beer is great and staff is very helpful. Best of all there’s not 50 unattended kids running around. It’s like a real adult bar. Had a strong Asheville brewery vibe. Will definitely be back.

This place is awesome! So many games to play, reasonably priced beer, lots of space and kid/dog friendly. There was an amazing food truck there yesterday which was much appreciated. Tables and lots of outdoor space available.

Great new place for Durham! Delicious beers. Great prices ($7 liters on Mondays!?!)! The space is big but lots of seating. Outdoor space is nice but would be better with heaters and uncovered areas. Parking seems limited, but only been here on a weekday, so haven’t experienced the full crowd. All in all, this is a wonderful place and so glad they came to Durham!

Very cool space! plenty of rooms for large groups (we did a friends birthday there and a whole table to ourselves). I think they have one of the better sours in town and its very reasonably priced! There is usually a food truck there, but it changes so do your research before you go there. The life sized Foosball court is a ton of fun once you have had a few as well

Awesome. Huge inside with plenty of tables. Good amount of patio space. Great family environment and full of ping pong tables and soccer pool. Super dog friendly. The beer is great as well. The only downside is the loudness inside, but that is due to the wide open space and concrete floor; however, they are working on some sound damping system. Overall, great venue, great beer, fun place.
