“Alabama is already a high-growth market for us, so we see a lot of potential to really keep it going,” Hi-Wire Brewing co-owner Chris Frosaker told Craft Brewing Business. “Plus the city really is just blossoming, and we want to be part of it.”
Frosaker also credited the decision to expand to Birmingham by the brewery’s great relationship with wholesaler Alabama Crown, as well as an appreciation for the city and its exploding food and beverage scene.
Martin Smith and Michael Byrne of SRS Real Estate Partners represented Lakeview Green in the leasing of space to Hi-Wire Brewing.
