Craft beer lovers and pinball wizards alike are drawn to Helicon Brewing, where several gleaming stainless steel tanks that brew Helicon’s finely crafted beer take center stage. They sit just five feet away from the taproom’s main seating area. Dedicated to creating great-tasting American, German, and Belgian-style beer, Helicon brews traditional lagers, stouts, pale ales, and IPAs — all crafted from just malt, hops, water, and yeast. Helicon’s English-style Tree Trunk Brown Ale features roasted, nutty malt, and Magnum and Hallertau Hersbrucker hops, while their Double IPA with its pineapple, passionfruit, and mango flavors is crafted from Magnum, Galaxy, and El Dorado hops. Be sure to check out Helicon’s arcade, where you’ll find dozens of pinball machines just waiting for you to try your hand.
