|Big No No||Baltic Porter Robust &Roasty||8.5%|
Influenced heavily by porters brewed in England, Baltic porters are developed in the northern European baltic states. 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
|Throwback||Pale Ale from the 90's||5.5%|
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, Pine and floral notes.More info on Untappd
|Timbo Pils||West Coast Hoppy Pilsner||5.8%|
We took inspiration from both German Pilsners and West Coast IPAs for Timbo Pils. 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. 5.8% abvMore info on Untappd
|Refresh||Highland Park Beer, Crisp, Light and Refreshing||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
|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
|Break Stuff||West Coast Double IPA||9.0%|
Perfect. More than 4 pounds per barrel dry hopping of Ekuanot, Motueka, and HBC 517. This provides a massive hop aroma and flavor filled with notes of Papaya, pina colada, grapefruit, and pine. Back to our West Coast roots with clean malts, warming alcohol, and bright hops. Enjoy!!More info on Untappd
|Surprise, Surprise||Hazy Pale Ale with El Dorado & Citra||5.1%|
Surprise, Surprise is a hazy pale ale dominated by the tropical fruit qualities of Citra and El Dorado hops. The beer has a softer bitterness, a smooth mouthfeel, and a medium body. Dry hopped at a rediculous 4 lbs per barrel, the Citra and El Dorado hops bring out vibrant tropical fruit qualities of pineapple, guava, orange, and lime. 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.
