|Throwback||Classic Pale Ale||5.5%|
We drew inspiration for this Classic Pale Ale 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, Pine and floral notes.More info on Untappd
|Fill Pils||German-style Pilsner||5.2%|
We are incredibly excited to present this beer! German Pilsner is perhaps our favorite style of beer to drink on an everyday basis. We stayed very traditional with this beer, using all German ingredients: Weyermann pils malts, Tettnang, Hallertau Mittelfrau, Saaz, and Saphir hops. We gave this beer its proper time and let it lager for a few weeks. Snappy bitterness, floral freshness, and just a touch of bready malt in the background. Prost!More info on Untappd
|One Up||West Coast Double IPA with Mosaic||8.8%|
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
|Neighborhood||Rustic Witbier, Citrusy, Tart, Dry||5.3%|
This vibrant and refreshing wit 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
|Zero Buttons||West Coast IPA with Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe Hops||7%|
Our scrappy little brewery is about as manual of a brewhouse as you can get. Our lack of automation inspired us to make Zero Buttons. This west coast IPA features Mosaic, Citra, and Simcoe to highlight both tropical citrus and classic west coast dank. Beer!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
|Timbo Pils||West Coast Pilsner||5.8%|
We took inspiration for this West Coast Hoppy Pilsner from both German Pilsners and West Coast IPAs. We used more German influenced hops in the kettle (Czech Saaz, Opal, and Saphir) which gives the beer a softer bitterness and a nice floral and earthy hop base. We then used Mosaic and Motueka for dry hopping to bring out the tropical west coast flavors of mango, riesling grapes, and passionfruit.More info on Untappd
|Genius||Hazy Double IPA with Motueka, Galaxy, Vic Secret||8%|
Sourcing all the dry hops for this beer from the Southern Hemisphere, Genius explodes with hot weather tropical flavors. An oat rich malt bill gives this beer a creamy mouthfeel that lends itself to a sort of tropical fruit and cream quality. Genius is a truly superb hop experience from the Galaxy, Motueka, and Vic Secret hops. Beer!More info on Untappd
|Feed the Cats||Hazy Mixed Culture IPA||7.5%|
Feed the Cats is a recipe developed by our brewer Derrel Furutani. Feed the Cats is also a very important item on our closing checklist (the Cats are incredibly proactive if you’ve somehow overlooked this task). It’s our first attempt at combining the two worlds of mixed culture fermentation and hazy IPA’s. The soft, round palate of a hazy ipa works great with the tropical aromas of El Dorado and Motueka hops. This is even more enhanced by the fruity fermentation character of Saccharomyces Trois yeast and our house mixed cultures. The end result is a complex tropical mix of mango, papaya, and pineapple. Enjoy!!More info on Untappd
|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
|Net Positive||Stout, Chocolate, Cherry Cola, Nutty||5.5%|
Net Positive is a recipe developed by our brewer Grant Scholler. It was made with the intent of being an approachable and highly drinkable stout. For the recipe we focused on balanced chocolate malts backed by a medium body and a clean 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.
