|Vacation with Brett||Belgian-Style Single Aged with Brettanomyces||5.4%|
The added aging with three strains of Brettanomyces (B. Lambicus and 2 unknown strains from Bootleg Biology) lends this beer complex tropical fruit, stonefruit funkiness, and a drier finish. **batch 1 and Batch 2 bottles on premise only**More info on Untappd
|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
|Uncultured||Farmhouse Ale Aged in Red Wine Barrels||5.4%|
This amber farmhouse ale was aged for 8 months in french red wine barrels. Fermentation utilized our house mixed culture of Brettanomyces, pedioccocus, and lactobacillus. The extended aging in oak is the longest any of our beers have been exposed to wood. Rich oak, developed earthy and fruit qualities from brettanomyces, and integrated acidity and tannins in the finish. **bottles togo only**More info on Untappd
|Hammered Satin||Double Oatmeal Stout||9.7%|
Perhaps our favorite glam rock band is none other than Hammered Satin!. This silky, chocolatey double oatmeal stout is our ode to the glam rock gods (glitter was our secret ingredient). Big body, rich dark chocolate, and a finish of oatmeal cookies. Enjoy!More info on Untappd
|Bug Juice||Brown IPA||7%|
Our brewer Tim McDonnell brings this beer to us with a focus on the Dank! Tons of Simcoe and Columbus dry hops make this beer lean more toward an IPA than a brown ale. Cocoa powder, orange zest, and a resounding dankness shine in this brown IPA.More info on Untappd
|Someday||Barrel Fermented Small Saison||4.5%|
This is the type of beer we want to drink EVERY SINGLE DAY! It’s crisp and refresh, but immensely complex. Fermented in large French oak barrels with our house mixed cultures and our saison yeast strains, this beer has bright citrus, peppery earth, and a dry, tangy finish. Chug away!!More info on Untappd
|1UP||West Coast Super IPA||8.3%|
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
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
|All The Yeast||Barrel Fermented Saison with All The Yeast||5.9%|
This beer is a celebration of us brewing beer for one year! We used every strain of yeast taking up residence in our festive little brewery. It was fermented in oversized (132 gallon) french oak puncheon barrels that previously held red wine. It is dry and citrusy with a pleasant brettanomyces earthiness and a peppery, refreshing finish. ***bottles available togo***More info on Untappd
|Raised Eyebrows||Sour Ale with Guava and Passionfruit||4%|
This beer utilizes Passionfruit and guavas from our tree in the parking lot. 30% is aged in red wine barrels and 70% is aged in stainless steel. The beer is fermented with our house cultures that contain lactobacillus, pediococcus, and brettanomyces. The exotic, ripe qualities of the unique fruit comes through as refreshingly zippy, aromatic, funky, and fun! ***bottles for on premise only***More info on Untappd
|Dank You Very Much||Dank IPA||7.5%|
Ah man, where would we be without our beer friends? Well, actually, we’d be in an HPB world with no IPA’s. Our pals at Noble, Cellarmaker, and Golden Road have provided hops in the direst of times. This is our ode to them. Nelson. Citra. Columbus. Over 4 lbs. per barrel. Dank You Very Much!More info on Untappd
|With Ease||Dry-hopped Lager||3.5%|
This is a chuggable lager beer. Crisp, clean and perfect for throwing back 10 pints in a day. Dry hopped with German Opal and New Zealand Motueka, With Ease has fresh floral and citrus lime aromatics with a light body and soft bitterness. Chug Away!!More info on Untappd
|Hello, LA||West Coast IPA||6.8%|
This is a bright, pungent IPA that has punchy hops yet still retains good drinkability. Hello, LA finishes dry with not too much body or malt to get in the way of the hops. Lots of new world flavors with the American hop varieties Citra and Mosaic.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
|Neighborhood||Barrel Fermented Rustic Witbier||5.3%|
This vibrant and refreshing beer was created by our brewer Tim McDonnell with the intent of making a more rustic, historic version of this beer style. Fresh navel and bitter oranges were gathered from the trees of our friends yards in the neighborhood and added to French oak barrels. We used a traditional witbier yeast to set the tone for this beer and then added our house cultures (brett, lacto, and pedio) to impart more depth. Refreshing, complex, and gushing with citrus fruit characteristics.More info on Untappd
|Fill Pils||German Style Pilsner||5.4%|
German Pilsner is perhaps our favorite style of beer to drink on an everyday basis. We stayed very traditional with this beer, using German pils malts, Tettnang hops, and Saaz hops. We gave this beer its proper time and let it lager for 4 weeks. Snappy bitterness, floral freshness, and just a touch of bready malt in the background. Prost!

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.
