|Refresh||Crisp and Clean House Beer||4.5%|
This pale beer is crisp, light bodied, and incredibly drinkable. We use an ale yeast at low temps and Noble hops that give this beer Pilsner like qualities, lightness of palate, and fresh floral aromas.More info on Untappd
|Junior Junior||Hoppy Imperial Stout||10.5%|
My neighbors name is Junior. He named his little Shih Tzu dog Junior after himself. So, we named a beer after them both. Junior Junior is a rich, darkly bitter imperial stout dry hopped with Mosaic. This lends citrus and weed notes to the strong, dark roasted malt base. Hope you enjoy!More info on Untappd
|McDonnell's||Irish Red Ale on Nitro||5.3%|
Our Irish Red from brewer Tim McDonnell is a sessionable beer that pours with a creamy cascade of nitro carbonation, has a nice balanced malt presence from Maris Otter malt, and just a hint of Fuggles hops to make it interesting.More info on Untappd
|Chinatown Brown||Oatmeal Brown||6.8%|
Our brewers Tim McDonnell and Grant Scholler made a little in house collaboration with this beer. They used a ton of Simpson Golden Naked Oats which gives this beer its foundation of breakfast cereal and toffee flavors. The chocolate malt gives this beer its expected cocoa flavors and a nice dry char finish. Cheers to collaborating with ourselves:) Enjoy!!More info on Untappd
Inspired by both Belgian Farmhouse beers and Bruce Springsteen's classic album Nebraska? Why not! Nebraska uses a saison yeast blend and German Hallertau Blanc hops to give this beer both citrus and earthy qualities. Those flavors are balanced against lemon peel bitterness, slightly tangy acidity, and a crisp, dry finish. Enjoy!More info on Untappd
|No Future||Hoppy Pale Ale with Equinox||5.9%|
This hoppy pale ale is brewed with 100% Equinox, a hop we don’t have contracts on and don’t have access to. The name is very literal. Equinox is a newer hop varietal that is known for its tropical citrus and woodsy, pine qualities. The base beer is a fairly big pale ale with a subtle malt character, medium body, and a big hop presence throughout. Enjoy!More info on Untappd
|One Up||Double IPA with Mosaic||8.8%|
Holy smokes we packed a lot of hops into this beer. More than 4 pounds per barrel in fact. This beer is focused on one and only one thing, HOPS! Mosaic make up about 75% of the hop bill, Citra about 17%, and Columbus fills out the rest with about 8%. Cheers to extra life with more hops!More info on Untappd
|Bonkers||West Coast IPA with Simcoe||7.3%|
We went bonkers dry-hopping this IPA, with over 3 lbs per barrel of pungent Simcoe Hops. Big aroma with a delicate malt presence make this a bright, punchy, and drinkable IPA. Eh, you know, it also won the LA IPA Fest too.More info on Untappd
|Company of Parrots||Barrel-Fermented and Dry Hopped Farmhouse ale||6.8%|
An ode to the colorful and noisy group of parrots that fly over Highland Park Brewery almost every single day! We tried to match their intensity with the creation of this barrel fermented and aggressively hopped farmhouse ale. Huge hop character is bursting out of the glass with amplified tropical fruit notes from the Simcoe, Nelson, and Mosaic. The barrel fermentation and our house mixed culture give background notes of brett funk, oak, and just a tinge of acidity. This is a fun one!More info on Untappd
|Trading Burritos||Barrel-Fermented Brett IPA||6.6%|
More camaraderie with our friends from Cellarmaker!! This beer was 100% barrel-fermented with our house cultures. We dry hopped exclusively with Mosaic hops in the barrel at a rate of almost 3lbs per barrel. You get nice brett funk with the tropical, mango flavors of Mosaic filling the aroma. Enjoy!More info on Untappd
|Vacation||Belgian Style Single||4.6%|
Vacation is a simple, yet complex Belgian-Style single. Utilizing American hops Citra and Amarillo, Vacation is crisp and slightly hoppy with great pear, apple, and tropical fruit aromas.

About The Brewery
We’ve chosen to open a brewery because we think it is a pretty awesome world of discovery, adventure, and, quite simply, fun. We have a pretty charismatic approach to making beer in the neighborhood we live. We make the beer in a 7 bbl brewhouse under the same roof as The Hermosillo. We like to experiment with unique processes, wacky microbes, and local ingredients among other things. The brewery is comprised of four partners: Bob Kunz, Ross Stephenson, Michael Blackman and Dustin Lancaster, with Bob primarily guiding the beer along its path. Overall, Highland Park Brewery has a fairly simple goal of making excellent beer and having a good time along the journey.
