|Big No No||Baltic Porter, Robust & Roasty||8.5%|
Influenced heavily by porters brewed in England, Baltic porters developed in the northern European baltic states. Baltic Porters are brewed with lager yeasts and typically push toward a higher strength of alcohol. Big No No is a beer developed by our brewer Grant. It has a clean and balanced chocolate and roast character with dark fruit and coffee notes. Its higher alcohol is well hidden and dangerous. Enjoy!More info on Untappd
|America's Preference||Unfiltered Pilsner Beer||5.5%|
Ah man, we can never have enough Pilsner! This unfiltered Pilsner utilizes Saaz hops and no finings or filtration to leave us with a beer full of great old world hop character and a simple pilsner malt base. Crisp and snappy with a great hop balance allow the earthy, floral, and citrus qualities to shine. Balanced bitterness and a clean flavor profile make this beer immensely drinkable. Cheers!More info on Untappd
|Fight Crime||West Coast IPA with Vic Secret Hops||6.5%|
Fight Crime gave us a chance to work with a hop we’ve never used before, Vic Secret. This hop from Australia comes across incredible in this beer. Huge aroma and flavor with pungent tropical notes out front and subtle resinous, pine qualities in the background. Beer!More info on Untappd
|Yard Beer||Mixed Culture Saison w/Black Limes||7.2%|
This beer draws inspiration from plants surrounding our homes in Highland Park. The black lime's come from our friend Alex Brown’s yard. He takes fresh limes and brines them and then ferments them in the sun which turns them black and intensifies the flavor. The sour flowers are sourced from several yards around Highland Park and lend a nice lemony zip. We came up with a fairly simple saison recipe for the beer that leans toward citrus and zesty pepper. We then conditioned it for a short period with our house mixed culture (Brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus) which adds a bit of earthiness to the brightness of the lime citrus.More info on Untappd
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
|Beer Spaceship||Hoppy Pale Ale||4.8%|
Welcome to outerbeerspace!! Utilizing primarily Galaxy hops, this beer is fresh, hoppy, and incredibly drinkable. The berry and melon hop flavors are backed by a clean malt body from 2-row malt, oats, and carapils.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
|All the Yeast||Barrel-fermented Blend of Sour Ales||5.1%|
This beer is a celebration of us brewing beer for one year! We used every strain of yeast taking up residence in our festive little brewery. It was fermented in oversized (132 gallon) french oak puncheon barrels that previously held red wine. It is dry and citrusy with a pleasant brettanomyces earthiness and a peppery, crisp finish.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.

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.
