We're very happy to announce that the HELEN MILLS' beer offering is now exclusively made up of craft beer, with one choice brewed just two miles from the venue!
THE BEER LINEUP
In choosing the beer list, our team aimed to appeal to a wide variety of our guests who attend and host events in the event space and theater, while introducing beer drinkers to new experiences. "It was a tough choice to make - I like having a variety of styles because guests may prefer different options, depending on their preferences or even mood," says HELEN MILLS Operations Manager, Rebekah Kim.
In the end, the choices were narrowed to four excellent brews (clockwise below): Alphabet City Brewing Co. - Easy Blonde, 2. Abita Light, 3. Sam Adams - Boston Lager & 4. Sierra Nevada - Pale Ale
A Robust Selection
1. Alphabet City Brewing Company: Easy Blonde Ale
*This is our seasonal choice - it will be rotated to make way for another tasty choice*
