Helix brewing company is located in La Mesa, CA. It is a 10 BBL brew house with their roots in home brewing. The tasting room has 12 rotating taps of Helix beers.
Ambience – They did a phenomenal job on the space. It is a quaint indoor/outdoor tasting room. The patio is comfortable, plenty of seating. They have corn hole and various games. Super relaxing. We could have stayed there all day.
Beers – Very user friendly beers. 12 rotating taps. Heavy on the IPA offerings. Nothing blew me away but they were solid.
We tried the following
Galaxy Rye – Rye IPA @ 6.4 ABV
Red N Active – Hoppy Red Ale @ 5.2ABV
Summer Momentum – IPA @7.0 ABV (this beer is fun because they brew it differently each time)
Food – Rotating food vendors. They had Chicken Rebel – a fried chicken sandwich & tot vendor. We didn’t try the food, too heavy and hot out for fried foods, but surrounding tables said it was great. http://www.chickenrebelsd.com/
Overall – Great brewery to hang out in. Super chill vibe. Very palatable beers.
Misc – We really liked their choice in glassware.
