|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.More info on Untappd
|Wake Up||Session Coffee Beer on Nitro||5.3%|
This beer grew out of a love for iced, black coffee. We wanted to capture both the jolt of freshness and the deep, dark flavors that somehow seem appropriate for summer. The base of the beer focuses on clean roast flavors to provide a platform for coffee from Trystero. The beans for this batch are El Salvadorian Borbonal. What we ended up with is a nice clean, soft roast that is both pungent and delicate at the same time.More info on Untappd
|Timbo Pils||West Coast Style PIlsner||5.8%|
We took inspiration from both German Pilsners and West Coast IPAs for Timbo Pils. We used more German influenced hops in the kettle (Czech Saaz, Opal, and Saphir) which gives the beer a softer bitterness and a nice floral and earthy hop base. We then used Mosaic and Nelson for dry hopping to bring out the tropical west coast flavors of mango, riesling grapes, and passionfruit.More info on Untappd
|Refresh||Our House Beer, Crisp and Light||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
|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
|Made Possible||West Coast Style IPA w/Citra, Motueka, & J-17||6.4%|
This beer is made possible with the generosity of our friends in the brewing community. We got the South African J-17 and the New Zealand Motueka from Cellarmaker and the Citra from Noble. All these hops blend beautifully to bring the big fruit character of grapefruit, lime, and tangerine. Nice, broad medium body provides a great platform for big citrus and tropical hop flavors and firm bitterness. Beer!More info on Untappd
|Throwback||Pale Ale from the 90's||5.5%|
We drew inspiration for this beer from earlier memories of drinking craft beer in the Pacific Northwest. Slightly fuller bodied with a tad more malt character and yet still a nice hop presence. Basically, more balance to the beer. Though the caramel malt sets a nice base for the beer, the hops are still very fresh and in the forefront. For Throwback we used Cascade and an Australian hop called Summer, which impart some nice citrus and floral notes.More info on Untappd
|Spaceship 517||Pale Ale with Experimental Hop HBC517||4.8%|
Blast off!! Basically, the idea for this beer was to leave this planet. Ha! In order to do this we used the base beer for Beer Spaceship (our American Pale Ale), but used exclusively experimental hop HBC 517. This hops imparts great woodsy, stonefruit, and resinous qualities. If you didn’t already know, we like making beers that are sessionable. We wanted this beer to be under 5% and to feature HBC 517 in all it’s peachy, lime, woody goodness. With the low ABV we knew we needed a malt bill to fill out the body so the beer wasn’t too thin. The oats and carapils help give body and a nice subtle raw graininess to the beer. We hope you enjoy drinking lots of this to help in your journey to outerbeerspace!!More info on Untappd
|Fill Pils||German-Style Pilsner||5.2%|
We are incredibly excited to present this beer! German Pilsner is perhaps our favorite style of beer to drink on an everyday basis. We stayed very traditional with this beer, using all German ingredients: Weyermann pils malts, Tettnang, Hallertau Mittelfrau, Saaz, and Saphir hops. We gave this beer its proper time and let it lager for a few weeks. Snappy bitterness, floral freshness, and just a touch of bready malt in the background. Prost!More info on Untappd
|Nectarine Trading Burritos||Barrel-fermented Brett IPA with Nectarines||6.6%|
More camaraderie with our friends from Cellarmaker!! This beer was 100% barrel-fermented with our house cultures and nectarines. 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
|Coco Noche||Toasted Coconut Imperial Stout||9%|
Rich coconut and a moderate abv make this a perfect imperial stout for the summer (or any time of year for that matter). We toasted 75 lbs of shredded coconut (at 5 lbs coconut per barrel) in our home ovens and added them to an already velvety stout. This pushed the vanilla, chocolate, and tropical coconut notes to decadent level. Enjoy!More info on Untappd
|Partly Cloudy||Unfiltered IPA with Citra and El Dorado||6%|
This IPA is meant to feature the more raw side of hops. We don’t fine or filter it, so more hops stay in suspension, giving it more pure hop flavor. For this batch we used a unique combo of Citra and El Dorado. These hops lend punchy tropical fruits and tons of citrus (lemon, orange, grapefruit). We intend to rotate through unique hop varieties for future batches of Partly Cloudy.More info on Untappd
|Something or Other||Barrel-aged Saison with Raspberries||6.3%|
We brewed a saison with a multitude of Brettanomyces strains and then aged it for 10 months with red raspberries. This resulted in a texturally complex beer with integrated raspberry acidity, fruit skin tannins, and pleasant barnyard funkiness. Beer!More info on Untappd
|All the Yeast||Barrel-aged Sour Ale with all the HPB Cultures||5.1%|
This beer is a celebration of us brewing beer for two years! We used every strain of yeast taking up residence in our festive little brewery, including a portion of spontaneously fermented beer. It was fermented in oversized (132 gallon) french oak puncheon barrels that previously held red wine. It is dry and citrusy with a big grapefruit and lemon character up front, delicate oak in the middle, zippy acidity, and a peppery, lemon brightness in the finish.More info on Untappd
|Wild Rice Saison||Sour Saison, Rustic, Tart, Funky||5%|
This is a 100% barrel fermented saison utilizing Wild Rice, Barley, and Unmalted Wheat. We threw every strain of brett we have on hand (over 20 strains) in addition to our house cultures which contain Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus. This resulted in a very complex saison with lots of fruit qualities (grapefruit, mango, lemon), zesty acidity, and an underlying tone of rustic grains and wild flowers.

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.
