This sour wheat beer is first aged with a mix of yeast and bacteria (Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, Saccharomyces, and Brettanomyces) and then has organic Masumoto family farm peaches and nectarines added. This all developes into puckering tartness, complex funkiness, and juicy stonefruit. **on premise only**More info on Untappd
|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
|Ladies and Gentlemen||Belgian Style Golden Strong||8.3%%|
Ladies and Gentlemen, our Belgian Style Golden Strong Ale! This is an exciting and potentially dangerous beer. The character is complex, aromatic, and strong, but for 8.3% alc this beer is incredibly drinkable. Soft fruit and pepper from fermentation, German Hallertau and American Mosaic hops to deepen complexity, and a crisp, dry finish for drinkability.More info on Untappd
Inspired by both Belgian Farmhouse beers and Bruce Springsteen's classic album Nebraska? Why not! Nebraska uses a saison yeast blend and German Hallertau Blanc hops to give this beer both citrus and earthy qualities. Those flavors are balanced against lemon peel bitterness, slightly tangy acidity, and a crisp, dry finish. Enjoy!More info on Untappd
|Sun-Soaked||Berliner-style Weisse Fermented in Oak||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. Simple, yet complex. Funky, yet super drinkable. ***bottles available for on premise only***More info on Untappd
|Yard Beer (batch 2)||Sour Wheat Beer with Herbs, Weeds, and Citrus||5.4%|
The new version of Yard Beer uses Lemongrass from Bob’s yard, Sour Flowers (which is a weed) from Ross' yard, and Lemons and Limes from Michael's yard. It is a tart, wheat beer base that utilizes Lactobacillus for the initial souring and then is fermented with several farmhouse yeast strains (including Brettanomyces) that meld nicely with the bright citrus and earthy quality of the ingredients from our yards.More info on Untappd
|1UP||West Coast Super IPA||8.3%|
Holy smokes we packed a lot of hops into this beer. More than 3 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, Amarillo about 17%, and Columbus fills out the rest with about 8%. Cheers to extra life with more hops!

|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
|Beer Memories||Cascade IPA||7.3%|
This is our ode to the classic northwest hop Cascade. Yes, we definitely focused on Cascade in this beer, however we pushed for a little more roundness with the malt bill as we wanted this beer to lean toward classic Cascade IPA’s. Lots of citrus, pine, and floral characteristics jump out of the glass. Enjoy!More info on Untappd
|Uncontrollable Saison||Sour Saison Fermented in Oak||5.3%|
Saison fermented in french red wine barrels. Fermentation utilized our house mixed culture of saccharomyces, Brettanomyces, pedioccocus, and lactobacillus. Oaky, slightly tart, with complex, fruity characteristics.More info on Untappd
|McDonnell's||Irish Style Red Ale||5.3%|
Our Irish Red from brewer Tim McDonnell is a sessionable beer that pours with a creamy cascade of nitro carbonation, has a nice balanced malt presence from Maris Otter malt, and just a hint of Fuggles hops to make it interesting.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!More info on Untappd

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.
