Helio Basin Brewing Company
The inception of the idea for Helio Basin Brewing Co. started, albeit merely as a pipe dream for the founders, almost 15 years ago over a few homebrew batches with some friends at Allegheny College in Meadville, PA. After graduation they went two different directions, Mike to the Marines as an officer and Dustin to the Siebel Institute to start a professional brewing career. As time passed, one thing always kept coming up in conversation, the idea of opening up a brewery.
After having the opportunity to work for a few different successful breweries at different sizes (brewpub, brewpub/distribution and national/international distribution), it was decided to get back to smaller scale brewing and the brewpub side. We have a dedicated brewery space, housing a 15 bbl brewhouse, which is visible to everyone in the pub and a lot of open space for seating. There are also four large community tables affording ample space for sharing a pint with friends or meeting new ones, as we want to get back to a simpler time and encourage everyone to engage in the lost art of conversation. We also have the space to host private parties and charity functions and love connecting to the community in doing so. We feel that being a good member of the community means giving back and are excited about sharing our space with different organizations and groups.
