|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. **on premise only**More info on Untappd
|Griffith J Griffith||Imperial Stout with Trystero Coffee||10.5%|
Imperial Stout with Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe Kore Kochore coffee from Trystero. A full, warming Imperial Stout with rich, dark chocolate and char from the deep roast, dark berry qualities from the coffee, and decadent chocolate in the finish. **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
|Wake Up||Black Coffee Beer with Trystero Coffee||5.4%|
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 Columbia Pantanos Familia Flores. What we ended up with is a nice clean, soft roast that is both pungent and delicate at the same time. Hope you enjoy!More info on Untappd
|Slow Moves||Super Saison Aged in Oak Barrels||8.4%|
this beer is a robust, super saison. The base of this beer uses German Hallertau hops, a bit of rye for spiciness, and rosemary to provide some earthiness. It was then aged in oversized French oak puncheon barrels with our house mixed culture of lactobacillus, pediococcus, and brettanomyces. This all results in an incredibly complex and aromatic beer. Notes of pepper, pine, oak, earth, and citrus are balanced against a medium body, delicate acidity, and a warming finish. **Bottles available togo**More info on Untappd
|Uncultured||Amber Farmhouse 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
|Throwback||Pale Ale from the 90's||5.4%|
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 which impart some nice citrus and floral notes.More info on Untappd
|Bonkers||West Coast IPA||7%|
We went bonkers dry-hopping this IPA, with over 2.5lbs per barrel of pungent Simcoe Hops. Big aroma with a delicate malt presence make this a bright, punchy, and drinkable IPA.More info on Untappd
|The Achiever||Double IPA||8.2%|
Hoppppssss!! Yes, we do love them. This beer is our brewer Tim’s little achiever, or should I say big achiever. With more than 3 lbs per barrel of juicy West Coast style hops you get a massive presence of ripe tropical fruit. We used a bit of rye malt to lend a bit of spiciness, but for the most part the malt is clearly in the back and the hops are way out front. If it’s even possible, I’d say this beer is a session double IPA, it’s that freaking drinkable! Beer!!More info on Untappd
|Red Tick||Red Ale||4.5%|
Brewed in conjunction for The Oinkster’s burger week. Inspired by Homer Simpson’s beer of choice for one single night. An approachable and drinkable red ale utilizing both American Cascade and English Fuggle hops. Earthy aromas of wood, pine, and citrus lead to flavors of toasted bread, subtle chocolate and caramel, and a grapefruit and orange citrus. We like this beer, but it needs more dog.More info on Untappd
|Yard Beer (batch 2)||Sour Ale with Herbs, Weeds, and Citrus||5.5%|
**bottles togo only**More info on Untappd
|Raised Eyebrows||Sour Ale with Passionfruit and Guava||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!More info on Untappd
|Vizor Time||Pale Ale||5.3%|
Summer is here and this hoppy pale ale is perfect for the blistering sun. Punchy, quenching, and low enough in alcohol to be sessionable. We used the German hop Huell Melon (watermelon, strawberry jam, apple) and New Zealand Nelson (passionfruit, grapefruit, dank) to achieve a hugely fruity pale ale ale.

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.
