This sour wheat beer is first aged with a mix of yeast and bacteria (Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, Saccharomyces, and Brettanomyces) and then has organic Masumoto family farm peaches and nectarines added.

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.
|Beer Spaceship||Hoppy American Pale Ale||4,5%||link|
Welcome to outerbeerspace!! Utilizing primarily Galaxy hops, this beer is fresh, hoppy, and incredibly drinkable. The berry and mellon hop flavors are backed by a clean malt body from 2-row malt, oats, and carapils.
|McDonnell's||Irish Red Ale||5.4%||link|
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.
|Hello, LA||West Coast IPA||6.8%||link|
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.
|Ladies and Gentlemen||Belgian Style Golden Strong||8.3%%||link|
Ladies and Gentlemen, our Belgian Style Golden Strong Ale! This is an exciting and potentially dangerous beer. The character is complex, aromatic, and strong, but for 8.3% alc this beer is incredibly drinkable. Soft fruit and pepper from fermentation, German Hallertau and American Mosaic hops to deepen complexity, and a crisp, dry finish for drinkability.
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!

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.
