The total brewery count in San Diego leveled off for a while at the beginning ofwhile new breweries basically made up for losses of businesses that closed their doors. In the past few months, however, a small surge of new breweries opened, some of which have appropriated Orange Plumbing Company new spaces while others repurposed spaces that already had brewhouses and tasting rooms.

The tasting room is basic, functional, and cozy, with a simple but limited menu of beer-friendly items to choose from.

This ginormous space is the old SpecHops location, complete with the shiny, relatively new brewhouse and long wraparound tasting bar. The Beach Grease folks have given the airplane hangar-like room their own motorcycle-surf-racing vibe, but have retained the variety of tasting nooks and crannies—outdoor patio, indoor table, elbow bar, seated bar—that make this space particularly fun and versatile along with the sports-arena-grade sound system that blasts the place with music.

The beer lineup is solid, offering a good selection of styles that include a pilsner and a bunch of nicely done hoppy beers. All these elements make Helia feel social and welcoming. The initial tap lineup offers a variety of hop-centric brews, including two pale ales and two IPAs, along with a red ale, a golden ale, and a rich, toasty, porter. The new owners—a duo who previously worked together at Indian Joe—have created a cozy, family-feeling space that highlights Mexican art and crafts and underscores the sense of artisan tradition that inspires the company.

A new brewery with a tap list as large as Papa Marce's is impressive, especially when the beers are good. There is, of course, also some glitz on the tasting board; I was particularly partial to the Cinnamon Toast Lunch Porter and the uniquely charming imperial agave ale called Helia Brewing Company Wedding Caliente, which clocks in at a cool 9 percent.
