Collaborating with other breweries has been a part of Half Acre from the beginning. It’s a truly unique component of our industry and demonstrates a collective camaraderie and willingness to learn from others. @highlandparkbrewery has gone next level, working with other breweries to brew their beloved Timbo Pils. Bob asked us to take part and we jumped on board. He sent over super detailed intel regarding how they craft this hoppy lager in LA. Our brew team digested and translated their specs into our Lake Michigan centered brewing process, and the end result is a top level re-creation of Timbo.
A base of North American 2-row and German floor malted pilsner, traditional European hops in the brewhouse, clean lager yeast fermentation, American IPA hops in the dry hop yield a highly drinkable west coast pilsner. This has been a super fun project and as the stars aligned we were able to hand deliver day old cans to their brewery and side-by-side Timbo’s together, whoa!
HPB is a collection of positive folks intent on continually learning, growing, and pushing themselves to be a superb brewer that fosters community in the industry and local community. It was awesome road tripping up the California Coast with you all last week, thanks for the hat and the amazing time!
Timbo Pils is on draft + 4packs in the shop.
