Blackberry-Blonde-Helio-Basin-Beer.jpg

Blackberry Blonde

Not your typical fruit beer! Subtle hint of blackberry on the nose and a nice, clean body. The flavor of the fruit is both softly sweet yet refreshingly tart. Versatile enough for any crowd!

4.9% ABV 15 IBU

American-Pale-Helio-Basin-Beer.jpg

Clean Pale Ale with a strong hop presence from classic American hops. A simple malt bill and hop profile blended to create this underappreciated style.

5.5% ABV 50 IBU

Arcadia-Amber-Helio-Basin-Beer.jpg

Arcadia Amber

Not Granny's Amber. Hints of grapefruit from the hops and sweet caramel from the malt entice your nose. The flavor has notes of caramel and toffee followed seemlessly by pleasantly intense bitterness with hints of citrus.

5.8% ABV 70 IBU

American-IPA-Helio-Basin-Beer.jpg

American IPA

Notes of sweet caramel and pine on the nose offer a great preview of what's to come. The classic American hops compliment the subtley sweet yet pleasantly dry flavors from the Cara malts. A true to style classic, old-school American IPA.

6.5% ABV 75 IBU

Robust-Porter-Helio-Basin-Beer.jpg

Robust Porter

A beautiful dark and flavorful beer that is sure to please your senses without filling you up. Notes of burnt caramel, coffee and dark chocolate hit the nose from the special blend of malts in this brew. Complex and subtly, yet pleasantly bitter, this Robust Porter finishes dry and clean leaving you ready for another - any time of year!

5.8% ABV 40 IBU

4.9% ABV 10 IBU

straight-outta-county-helio-basin.jpg

Close to a slightly hoppy Extra Special Bitter (ESB) by style, it’s easy, clean and flavorful. Dark copper in color and brewed with Cascade and Amarillo hops. This is an easy drinking brew just begging you to take it home!

6.4% ABV 40 IBU

Black IPA

The weather in Arizona this time of year is beautiful, yet fickle. Some days it will be warm and others there will be a slight chill. This beer has elements that will be perfect for any day. The color is dark, but don’t let that scare you off. The aroma is pleasantly and surprisingly sweet, with hints of candied grapefruit and over ripe oranges with just a hint of sweet cocoa and a touch of pine. The flavor starts with a slight hint of roasted, caramel malt that is nice and dry and then quickly blends back into grapefruit, tropical fruit and finishes cleanly with a gentle kiss of pine! This beer has just what you need when you can’t decide if it’s chilly enough for a dark beer or warm enough for an IPA. Don’t let the color fool you, this brew is complex yet simple, dark but hoppy!

7.5% ABV 85 IBU

“Lord Rupert Everton III” Southwest IPA

Our Anniversary Beer, a Southwest IPA featuring a new hop each year. This year, the feature hop comes from France and is called Barbe Rouge. Pours a bright copper color and has a delicate aroma of red and black currants, red cherries and a faint hint almost of vanilla. The initial taste is clean and refreshing with notes of overripe strawberries and fresh cherries and finishes with a soft and subtle mix of lime and orange citrus! The finish is smooth and easy thanks to the low bitterness and soft use of oat flakes in the mash. The beauty of this beer is in its delightful subtly.

6.4% 22 IBU
