SAN DIEGO – Every August, Coronado Brewing Company celebrates another year spent brewing award-winning beer in the capital of craft. While things may look a bit different this year, the celebration continues. This August 14th through the 16th the company will celebrate it’s 24th anniversary with a promotional weekend loaded with Tasting Room specials, Instagram Live happy hour with CBC owner, Rick Chapman, 24% OFF their entire online merch store, and the release of their newest beer, Gentle Giant IPA. This new 16oz offering features artwork from San Diego local artist, Jack Stricker, and will be the first of three cans featuring Stricker’s art. This release will be available exclusively at Coronado Brewing locations and the first 100 people to pick up a 4-pack in the Tasting Room will receive a Gentle Giant print, hand-signed by the artist.
Gentle Giant is a Triple Hazy IPA brewed specifically to release in conjunction with CBC’s 24th year of brewing in San Diego. The beer is brewed using a blend of Idaho Gem, Sabro, Cashmere, and Chinook hops that lend the beer a tropical, fruity hoppiness. At 10% ABV the beer is full-bodied, yet juicy with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. “I like brewing big IPA’s to celebrate our anniversary each year.” says Mark Thiesen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. “The blend of hops we used was pretty unique and brought out really nice tropical, fruity, juiciness in a triple IPA. The end result is a surprisingly drinkable, yet full-bodied IPA that’s a perfect toast to our 24th year of brewing.”
Gentle Giant IPA will debut at all Coronado locations on Friday, August 14th in 16oz., four-pack cans. The beer will be available exclusively at Coronado Brewing locations in San Diego, Coronado, and Imperial Beach.

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. Today CBC stays true to their San Diego roots, brewing abundantly hoppy West Coast-style ales, which are available today in 14 US states and 12 countries. In addition to the long-established pub in Coronado, the company opened a tasting room inside its San Diego production facility in 2013, and a tasting room and restaurant in Imperial Beach, California in 2014. Coronado Brewing Company was honored in 2014 with one of the brewing industry’s most prestigious awards—World Beer Cup Champion Brewery and Brewmaster for a Mid-Size Brewing Company.
