Coronado Brewing Brings West Coast Hoppy Ales to Philly Beer Week

Coronado, CA. Only two months after reaching an agreement with Origlio Beverage for Philadelphia-area distribution, Coronado’s hoppy ales are coming to Philly Beer Week, taking place May 30th through June 8th. Coronado’s classic brews will be poured, including 2014 World Beer Cup Winner Islander IPA, Orange Avenue Wit, Mermaid’s Red, Blue Bridge Coffee Stout, and Idiot IPA. Philly will also see seasonal offerings such as Frog’s Breath and Hoppy Daze, and specialties like Bobblehead Red, GABF Silver Medal Winner Black Sails, and Barrelman’s Brown.

“The dedication of Ron and Rick Chapman is evident in the quality of Coronado’s beers and I look forward to spotlighting them even more at Philly Beer Week events,” said Grant Barrett, Origlio’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Now Philly beer drinkers can taste why they won the Champion Mid-Size Brewery & Brewmaster Award at the 2014 World Beer Cup awards only a month ago.”

About Coronado Brewing Company:
In 1996, when craft beer was still a foreign term and San Diego County was home to only a handful of breweries, the Chapman brothers Ron and Rick opened a brewpub in their hometown of Coronado. CBC brews abundantly hoppy West Coast-style ales staying true to their San Diego roots. They began distributing their beers throughout the local market, and today you can find Coronado beers in 17 states across the US. In addition to their long established pub in Coronado, the company opened a tasting room inside their newly built San Diego production facility in early 2013.
