|Hello, LA||West Coast IPA||6.8%||link|
Bright, pungent, and drinkable west coast IPA using Mosaic, Citra, Summer, and Columbus hops.
Crisp, clean, and dry. Refresh drinks like a Pilsner but is made with an ale yeast. We use Weyermann Bo Pils malt and American Tettnang hops to push the Pilsner-like qualities in this beer.
|New Wave||Citra Dry-hopped Wheat Beer||4.0%||link|
Citrusy, light bodied, and incredibly quenching. No hops are used in the kettle for this beer, instead we use a little acid malt for balance and a big dose of Citra hops to get the citrus notes.
|Special Moves||Winter Saison||7.5%||link|
Complex and aromatic, Special Moves is a robust, winter time saison using a touch of rosemary, German Hallertau dry-hopping, and just a little bit of rye for spiciness.
|Tiny-Shape||American Pale Ale||4.0%||link|
Ahh, we love our Tiny-shapes!! This low alcohol American pale ale has a big palate presence from Maris Otter pale malt and a generous dose of Cascade hops.
|Ham Porter||American Porter||5.3%||link|
An American porter that is made with a whole ham in the boil. Surprisingly, this beer is incredibly drinkable with delicate smokiness, big roast, and just a hint of brininess in the finish.
|Griffith J Griffith||Imperial Stout with Coffee||10.5%||link|
Whoa! Dark, massive, and rich. The Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe Kore Kochore coffee beans from Trystero give this beer an awesome depth of berry flavors that go perfectly with all the dark chocolate and roast.
|Vacation with Brett||Belgian-Style Single with Brettanomyces||5.4%||link|

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 all developes into puckering tartness, complex funkiness, and juicy stonefruit. **togo and on premise**

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.
