Coronado Brewing Releases 2 New IPAs in 16-Ounce Cans

SAN DIEGO – Coronado Brewing Company is releasing two new beers in one innovative mixed four-pack. Rise East Hazy IPA and Set West IPA will be packaged in 16oz cans, with each four-pack featuring two cans of each style. The concept for the mixed pack is to showcase how different yeast strains affect a recipe. In this case, a base IPA recipe is brewed twice, with the primary change being the yeast and dry-hopping regimen. The end result is a hazy New England-style IPA, and a classic West Coast-style IPA—packaged together so fans can experience both side-by-side.

Rise East Hazy IPA has huge hop aromas of mango, pineapple, and citrus from three dry-hop additions of Simcoe, El Dorado and Vic Secret. London III yeast and oats give the beer a soft mouthfeel with a juicy, tropical finish. Set West IPA is also brewed with a blend of Simcoe, El Dorado and Vic Secret, but in one massive dry-hop addition. Fermented with California Ale yeast, Set West accentuates the citrus and danker notes of the hop blend, with a dry, lingering finish. “As brewers, it’s fun to see how yeast can really change the flavor profile of a beer,” says Shawn Steele, Director of Brewing Operations, Coronado Brewing Company. “The mixed four-pack gives fans a chance to try the beers side-by-side and experience those differences for themselves. It was a lot of work building the mixed-packs, but we think the end result is worth it!”

Rise East/Set West will debut at Coronado Brewing’s three locations on Friday, May 24, in 16oz mixed four-pack cans and on draft. The beer will hit broader retail availability at the end of the month and will be available throughout Coronado’s distribution network. The company will also debut Salt Spray Sour Margarita Gose (passionfruit, lime, salt) on Friday, May 24th at all locations.

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 its 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.
