    Had an amazing time! Took my mother for her birthday! Upon arrival they had a balloon waiting at our table and gave us a flight of sours for her birthday on them. 100% will go again

    Craft beer selection was minimal. Several of the options weren't cold yet at 7pm. Flights are kinda pricey. About 30% higher than other venues.

    Hi-Wire is great. They really don't have any control over the food but I've never had a bad experience. It doesn't hurt they're a short walk away from our house, but we'd go there even if it wasn't.

    Only food truck available but you can bring in food. We were three adults and three small Children. Activities for adults, and children could participate with adult guidance. We went at 12:15 And that worked very well. Left a bit before two.

Each beer I've tried has been delicious, they are doing a wonderful job of creating a safe environment during COVID, and their team is very friendly and efficient! Can't wait until the weather warms up and the garage doors can be open! Thank you for a wonderful evening out!

    Great space and great beer garden. I gather that there are more games and ways to play them when its not covid. Food tasted good but didn't feel great next day. I'd have a popcorn machine and chips and nuts to buy if I were them. More food options.
