Storefront Report: Brewery in the works for York Boulevard

Only about a year after it opened, Hermosillo, the Highland Park beer and wine bar, is preparing to share its York Boulevard home with a brewery.  Robert James Kunz has applied for a state license to operate a “small beer manufacturer”  under the name Highland Park Brewery in the same building.

An employee at Hermosillo said the brewery would be located in the back of the bar but would operate separately. He had few other details about the operation.  The Eastsider is attempting to reach Kunz for comment.

The Highland Park Brewery would join several other small breweries in the area, including  Eagle Rock Brewery in Glassell Park and Golden Road Brewery in Atwater Village.


  1. I think you mean a year after it was bought out by a white dude. That place has been there since I was a kid and I am 31.

    • Oh Fuzzy,
      Everyone knows it’s been there forever, that’s why the new owners kept the sign and name: to respect HLP history. Don’t try to create a false controversy and get your knickers all twisted up……
