Our name comes from the first paragraph of the first page of the book The History of Oakdale Borough:
"Although the official history of Oakdale began in 1892, the real history of the town began earlier than that. The land on which Oakdale is situated was originally part of a 400 acre tract of land which the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania granted to Judge Hugh Henry Brackenridge on April 11, 1778. In the original warrant, the name given to this land is called Mt. Helicon, a name from Greek mythology, the sacred home of the Muses." Our logo is a Greek harp with a barley stem in the middle.
We plan to produce a wide variety of American, German, and Belgian styles of beers and also some new and unique brews. More information will be coming soon.
As Helicon is a production brewery and not a brewpub, we encourage you to be creative and BYOF (Bring your own food). We will have an extremely limited menu of some simple snacks, however there are several excellent restaurants within walking distance of the brewery. Please feel free to carry out and carry in!
Our draft room is first come first serve seating. Our service is traditional pub style, and we are more than happy to serve you at the bar. In the future we will be offering the brewery for private events, sign up for our email list and stay posted. Show Less
