|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
|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
|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
|Our Lot||Mixed Culture Saison||7.8%|
Our Lot is a stronger, more assertive saison made with spelt, a historic type of wheat cultivated since around 5000 BC. We used mostly our house cultures (brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and Pediococcus) and a little bit of saison yeast. Ultimately, the brett took over. Huge fruit driven brett character with big apricot, cantaloupe, strawberries and cream, peach, and plum flavors and aromas. Big textures on this beer too with a nice fruit skin tannin and a pronounced grapefruit pith bitterness. Enjoy!More info on Untappd
|Only Human||Hoppy Pale Ale with Experimental Hop HBC 342||5.5%|
We are having a blast exploring the experimental hop world. For Only Human we used HBC 342. The name is a reference to a Belgian brewery we enjoy and respect called Brasserie De La Senne. They started their brewery as an ode to humans being the only living beings to have the capacity to decipher and enjoy bitterness as not being poisonous. HBC 342 contributes candied fruit qualities with big resinous bitterness and a nice floral qualities throughout. Beer!More info on Untappd
|Someday||Rustic Oat Saison||5.2%|
This is the type of beer we want to drink EVERY SINGLE DAY! It’s crisp and refreshing, but immensely complex. Fermented with oats, our house mixed cultures, and saison yeast strains, this beer has bright citrus, peppery earth, and a dry, tangy finish.More info on Untappd
|Nebraska||Farmhouse Saison Citrusy & Earthy||6.5%|
Inspired by both Belgian Farmhouse beers and Bruce Springsteen's classic album Nebraska? Why not! Nebraska uses a saison yeast blend and German Tettnang and 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
|Saison & Cider||Sour Cider & Saison Blend (Collab with 101 Cider)||7.0%|
Barrel Aged blend of rustic saison and 101 Cider.More info on Untappd
|Daze||Hazy Pale Ale, Tangerine and Tropical||5.5%|
Hazy, hoppy beers are a fun new challenge for us. A departure from our typical West Coast style IPAs, these beers have softer bitterness, smoother mouthfeel, and a pronounced leaning toward hops that emulate fruit juice. For Daze we decided to use mostly Southern Hemisphere hops from Australia and New Zealand. The Galaxy, Motueka, and Southern Cross hops in this beer give it its foundation of huge tropical fruit and citrus flavors and aromas. The oats and wheat round out the palate and give the beer a soft, more gentle mouthfeel. Enjoy!More info on Untappd
|Bonkers||West Coast IPA with Simcoe hops||7.0%|
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.

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.
