Summer Ale Tapping at Helton Brewing Company

  • Helton Brewing Company 2144 East Indian School Road Phoenix, AZ, 85016 United States (map)

On Wednesday, June 22nd, Helton Brewing is throwing their first tapping party to introduce their Summer Ale. Pints will be available for $3 on Wednesday only. There will also be a food truck from JL Smokehouse, a film crew on site, and the tapping of a very unique beer from Knee Deep Brewery. Doors open at 3 pm and the food truck will arrive at 6 pm.

Helton's Summer Ale has a character that is reminiscent of a hoppier, slightly stronger, slightly fruitier cousin to an American Light beer.  It was brewed with English malts, wheat and oats and the added Galena Hops lends a slightly fruity character. It is well carbonated and refreshing on the palate,making it perfect for the hot summer days in Arizona.
