Coronado Brewing to Release North Island New Engalnd-Style IPA in Cans

SAN DIEGO – As part of its new Knoxville Series, Coronado Brewing is re-releasing North Island IPA in freshly designed six-pack cans and 22oz bottles. North Island is the first installment in Coronado’s new Knoxville Series, which will feature three special release beers distributed throughout Coronado’s network in six-pack cans, 22oz bottles and on draft. Different from a traditional seasonal release, the Knoxville Series will offer beer drinkers fun, interesting beers available to buy on store shelves, while supplies last. The series’ name pays homage to the street in which Coronado’s flagship brewery is located: Knoxville Street. Forthcoming beers in the series will include Peach Cruiser IPA and Early Bird Milk Stout.

Originally released last winter, North Island IPA is brewed and double dry-hopped with a blend of Citra, Centennial and Azacca hops that impart bright citrus notes and tropical juicy fruitiness. British ale yeast accentuates the hop fruitiness and gives the beer a cloudy haze that is the hallmark appearance of the style. “This beer has been incredibly well-received and has quickly become a crowd favorite for us,” says Mark Theisen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. “We’re excited to get this beer in cans and out to the public.”

North Island IPA hits store shelves beginning January and will be available throughout the company’s distribution network. Eager fans can get a sneak peek at all Coronado locations on Friday, December 22 with six packs available before the beer hits broader retail availability in January.

Label Copy: This New England-style IPA is bursting with ripe, tropical juiciness. British ale yeast accentuates the hop fruitiness and gives this unfiltered beer a dense, foggy haze like the coastal marine layer swallowing the north side of our island.
