Helton Brewing Company opened its doors in the spring of 2016 but it has grown in popularity in Arcadia Lite and the Central Phoenix area ever since. Helton is situated down Indian Road towards 22nd Street. The building that houses the brewery is hard to miss; the large black sign with a huge yellow H on it should notify you that you are in the right place.
🏅 Brewmaster Brian
Founder and brewmaster, Brian Helton, has racked up a reputation for himself in the beer circles as a well-respected cicerone (the equivalent of a sommelier) as he has spent the better part of 19 years dealing with all things beer.
He was won a number of prestigious awards including the Great American Beer Festival Awards. Arizonans’ love for beer has been growing steadily in the past few years.
More than 80 craft breweries have been opened in the region so far, and the number is expected to continue rising as people continue to familiarize themselves with the craft beer movement. Anyone who has had a Helton IPA knows that Brian has come about as close to beer perfection as possible. Come on in and enjoy a cold frosty and see for yourself.
🍻 Frosty Variety
The Helton Brewing Company is an ideal place to stop by on a weekend or if you need a release after a busy workday. Anyone is welcome here including chefs, sommeliers, local restaurateurs, foodies, novice, as well as experienced craft beer lovers.
The brewery tries to have as many as 7 beers on tap, three of which may include local brews such as the flagship brew known as Scottish Ale and canned varieties that change on a regular basis.
Other Helton brews include Anderson Valley by Briney Melon Gose, Dortmunder, which is an award-winning German export lager made by the Pedal Haus located in Tempe, Wakatu Hops, Chinook Hops, and a black IPA named Street Cred.
Also available is a carefully selected menu consisting of cured meats, grilled sandwiches, artisan cheeses, and waffles. The accompaniments, which consist of local wildflower honey and sour cherry mostarda, are typically paired with Helton brews that can complement the flavors used.
Customers are extremely involved when it comes to giving their opinions regarding the menu items and the brews on hand. To heighten the culinary experience, the brewery encourages customers to create their own boards of meat and other accompaniments.
Customers are also allowed to leave tasting notes on take away items, which helps them start a conversation between clients and the management.
