|Neighborhood||Barrel Fermented Witbier (bottles togo)||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
|Feed the Cats||Hazy, Mixed Culture IPA (bottles togo)||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.

|America's Preference||Unfiltered Pilsner||5.4%|
America’s Preference - Hoppy, Unfiltered Pilsner - 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! 5.4% abv.More info on Untappd

|Situation||Hazy IPA w/Citra & Motueka||6.8%|
Situation IPA utilizes two of our go to hazy IPA hops, Citra and Motueka. We used the London 3 strain of yeast which contributes big stonefruit and tropical qualities. An oat heavy malt bill lends a creamy body and soft finish. Beer!!More info on Untappd
|Losing Control||Hazy Double IPA w/Simcoe, Citra & Vic Secret||8%|
Simcoe cryo hops, Citra, and Vic Secret were used to impart a marriage between fresh, tropical driven aromas and Simcoe dankness. The London 3 yeast used to ferment this beer contributes orange juice like creaminess and zesty citrus. Losing Control is a reference from a Devo song and represents the state we often find ourselves. 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.
