Excellent time!
Oct 2021 • Couples
We did the panhandle bike trail early and planned to stop for beer and food (in that order!). First time here and our impressions were very good. Beer was top notch. Food truck (Pittsburgh Hummus) was excellent. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the bar tenders were friendly and efficient. Just a nice time to release life’s stress. Highly recommend Helicon Brewery. Keep up the great work!

Really good, except..
Sep 2021
We would have stayed longer and had a better time, except the woman and man at the end of the bar who are friends with the barmaid started on us as soon as we walked in. They were making fun of us because we had masks on. We are not from the area and did not know if they are required or not. We always have them with us when we travel now because you never know. I am not sure why this person is allowed to sit right by the register where you order but if he keeps harassing customers when they walk in, they won't be open long.
It is a real shame because it reminded us of the breweries in Asheville, NC. I wish them the best, the location is great, the beer was cold and good. The people outside are from all ages, playing ball, riding bikes, having picnics. It is a cool place, and have a great logo.

We live 5 minutes away and it’s one of those places that makes you feel lucky to live in the area. The trail is great in both directions. Excellent beer. Always great food trucks. DOGS! So. Much. Pinball. And sometimes Penguins playoff tailgating!

Beer + Pinball Machines = Awesome!
Jan 2021 • Couples
Such a fun brewery! Great beer selection, friendly staff, and great for all ages. We underestimated the amount of pinball machines! Classic, music, tv show, and movie themed pinball machines ranging from 25 cents - $1.00 per play. It was awesome! Check the website for food trucks on Friday and Saturday and happy hours.

Interesting brewery
Nov 2019
Located right off of the main drag of Oakdale, Helicon Brewery is certainly an interesting spot. The staff here was excellent during my visit; very friendly and helpful. The area is open; there is U-shaped bar in the middle of the front portion, with seating around the U (some table seating, and a decent amount of bar seating). On the other side of the bar (opposite of the seating), is a huge assortment of pinball machines available to customers (and I would imagine their guests). This is an interesting selection, and I think an overall great feature. The beer was OK (I tried a sampler, and then a full draft). They do not have food here, but a couple of local restaurants do deliver directly to your table. Overall, this was a good visit.

Fun Brewery
Oct 2019
Helicon has great craft beers on tap and also serve a variety of wines for those non-beer-drinkers. More times than not, there is a food truck outside that can be taken to eat inside or outside at the picnic tables.

The Pinball Palace
Dec 2019 • Friends
And they serve beer. Lots of it I guess since they're making it right in front of you. I had two glasses of the American IPA (really good) because the other two things I tried were sort of hideous (raspberry?). Nonetheless, there's a good vibe here, and I had a great time. Our waitress was quite friendly and my friends (M&D) were awesome. They got a place right down the street, so l can see myself being here again in the future; I'm pretty sure the distant kind.

Awesome Brewery
Nov 2019
Came here for a beer (or two) after getting some great food at the Golden Pig in Cecil. The beers were great, and they were having trivia night (Tuesday) which made for a great time.

What a great place!
Aug 2019
We've been wanting to check this place out for a while. Finally, we were in the Robinson area and found it to be only 4 miles away from the mall. Many beers to choose from as well as ciders, meads and wines. Hubs tried a couple of beers and like all of them. I'm not a big beer drinker, so I had a mead and it was fabulous. Even better than the beverages was the staff. Super friendly! We Felt right at home. We can't wait to go back and take friends!

Nice Spot for a good Beer
Jul 2019
We go to Helicon frequently as it is essentially our neighborhood 'local'. The staff is always kind and responsive and they are very welcoming to kids. The proximity to the Panhandle trail is an added bonus and they have a bike rack so that you can park your ride while you grab a few beers.

They do a good job of rotating through food trucks and when the weather accommodates there is plenty of outdoor seating - though not much shade.
