Hi-Wire Brewing is a brewing company that is continuing on the traditions of brew beers that brewers have been striving to perfect for thousands of years. They hold fast to the traditions of brewing while experimenting with new techniques and varying flavors to provide a truly unique craft of beer selections.

Their selections include traditional lager beers that have a perfect balance of light Pilsen malt and German hops and Bed of Nails brown ale which is an ode to a traditional English brown with a light hop that balances the natural sweetness present in the specialty malt. For the more adventurous, they offer a selection of sour beers such as their Sour Heady Porter which is an oak fermented wild ale brewed with raspberries. It’s dark in color and not very hoppy. It’s fermented in red wine barrels for 8 months making the taste more sour than funky. They also have their specialty beers. One of my favorites is the Pulcinella which is their Russian Imperial Stout that’s aged for 10 months on a variety of hand-selected Napa Valley Zinfandel, Kentucky bourbon, and Crucian dark rum barrels before being blended, creating this illustrious complex stout. It’s a creamy beer with a diversity of flavors and is definitely a memorable beer that will keep you coming back for more.

One of the best things about Hi-Wire Brewing is their Hi-Wire Brewing and Foothills Local Meats that’s offered every Thursday. It’s a $10 special for a Flights & Bites series where the customer gets to select a beer flight of their choosing plus a pre-set four course small bite menu from Foothills Local Meats. It’s the perfect blend of beer and grub from the Foothills Local Meats food truck. The Foothills Local Meats offers delicious burgers made from local farmers that have raised their cattle with no added antibiotics and no hormones, making for a savory burger with a depth of flavor that can only be experienced.
