CORONADO, CA — If you were anxiously awaiting this year’s first slew of pumpkin beers, the wait is over. Coronado Brewing Company is set to release its seasonal ‘crown series’ offering of Punk’In Drublic later this month. This imperial pumpkin ale is brewed with heaps of actual pumpkin puree allowing it to stand out in a sea of spiced autumn beers. A medley of brown sugar, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice cultivates an earthy, spicy aroma while the pumpkin takes the lead in flavor. At 8% ABV, it is incredibly smooth and easy to drink. Punk’In Drublic will be available in 12 ounce 4-packs, 22 ounce bottles, and on draught.

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 20 states across the US and ten countries. 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. The past year has been very rewarding for the brewery; they opened their new tasting room and restaurant in Imperial Beach, CA. Winning Champion Mid Size Brewery and Brewmaster at World Beer Cup in Denver awarded them with one of the most prestigious distinctions in the industry.
