|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

|Pioneer Man||Hazy IPA with Citra, Azacca & El Dorado||7%|
Pioneer Man is a hazy IPA that tries to enter into the wonderful world of candied fruit flavors. Azacca, El Dorado, and Citra hops all lend themselves to flavors of gummy candy fruits like pineapple, mango, papaya, and tropical citrus. Rolled oats and malted oats give this beer a protein rich and velvety mouthfeel. Enjoy!More info on Untappd
|Going Global||Hazy IPA w/ Black Limes||6.7%|
Going Global matches the wonderful tropical qualities of Motueka hops and fermented black limes. This recipe was dreamed up by one of our brewers, Eric Mendoza. The Motueka hops from New Zealand lend fresh crushed citrus and mojito lime flavors. The black limes provide a super charged lime character that reminds us of green skittles. We hope you enjoy this tropical driven hazy ipa. Beer!More info on Untappd
|Quick Perfect||West Coast IPA with Ekuanot and Vic Secret||6.6%|
Quick Perfect is a west coast ipa featuring Ekuanot and Vic Secret hops. We used a classic west coast ipa malt bill that gives you enough body for the hops to stand on but still finishes crisp and clean. The Vic Secret hops from Australian lend a huge berry and fruit intensity. The Ekuanot hops contribute a concentrated citrus with some danker background notes. Beer!!More info on Untappd
|One Up||West Coast Double IPA with Mosaic and Citra||8.3%|
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
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
|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
|Sun Soaked||Berliner Weisse||3.2%|
Ah, this beer is a fun one. We used French oak red wine barrels. Berliner weisse beers typically get their acidity from a bacteria, Lactobacillus, that thrive at temperatures above 100 degrees! So, we decide to let these critters go at it in barrels baking in our parking lot. After initial souring we added several other yeasts to finish up fermentation. Super zippy lemon and grapefruit with raw wood notes in the background. Simple, yet complex. Funky, yet super drinkable.

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.
