SAN DIEGO – Keeping with tradition, Coronado Brewing is celebrating 22 years of award-winning beers by brewing a celebratory double IPA. A big occasion calls for a big beer, so every summer, the company releases a hopped-up imperial IPA to celebrate its anniversary. This year’s beer is set to debut at Coronado’s 22nd Anniversary Party on July 28, before hitting Coronado’s distribution network in six-pack cans, 22oz bottles and on draft.
Coronado’s 22nd Anniversary Imperial IPA is brewed with a blend of El Dorado, Citra, and Mosaic hops for vibrant notes of passionfruit, grapefruit, and stone fruit. The medium-bodied ale is highly aromatic, lightly bitter and clocks in at 8.5% ABV. “It’s no secret that San Diego is crazy for IPAs,” says Mark Theisen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. “Our goal for this beer was to brew an aroma-driven IPA that can stand proudly with all the other great IPAs in this city. We’re stoked with the way this beer turned out and are excited for people to get their hands on it.”
In addition to the commemorative beer, Coronado Brewing is hosting an anniversary party at its Bay Park Tasting Room on Saturday, July 28. Tickets are $10 and include admission into the event, beer ticket, and one raffle ticket for Coronado swag and other prizes. Additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase, with all proceeds benefitting the local San Diego chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. The event will feature 25+ beers on tap, local music by The Sidekicks and DJ Mike Czech, and a photo booth. Several gourmet food trucks will also be on site selling food.

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.
