Coronado Brewing Debuts Final Beer in 2019 Art Series: Mango Sprinkles Hazy IPA

SAN DIEGO – November 1, 2019Coronado Brewing Company is releasing Mango Sprinkles Hazy IPA, the fourth and final installment of its 2019 Art Series. Coronado is proud to support emerging artists by featuring a fan-submitted Instagram photo on each of its quarterly releases. The fourth winner of the 2019 contest is Wyland Szabo, an Oceanside-based aerial photographer. Szabo’s aerial photo of surfers in the water was reminiscent of colorful sprinkles and gave inspiration for the naming of Mango Sprinkles Hazy IPA.

Mango Sprinkles Hazy IPA is a playful twist on the haze craze. “I am stoked for people to try this beer,” says Mark Theisen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. “It pours like a mango smoothie and super fruit forward with just enough bitterness to balance everything.” The brewers started with a hazy IPA recipe and upped the ante with fresh mango puree and a hefty dose of Simcoe, Mosaic, Azacca, Amarillo and Chinook hops. The beer is then fermented with a centuries-old strain of Norwegian farmhouse ale yeast, called Kveik (Norwegian for “yeast”). This particular yeast strain imparts fruity esters of lime and citrus to perfectly complement the mango and hop character in the beer. Lastly, the beer is dry-hopped with almost two pounds per barrel of Mosaic, Azacca, Amarillo and Chinook hops, for an intensely dank and ripe fruit hop character.

Mango Sprinkles Hazy IPA is available in 16oz can 4-packs and on draft, beginning Friday, November 1, at each of Coronado’s three locations. The beer will be available throughout Coronado’s distribution network beginning the week of November 4. The company will launch its 2020 art contest in mid-November, for a March 2020 release. Fans are encouraged to enter their photos by submitting entries through Instagram using the hashtags #staycoastal and #coronadoentry.

Coronado Brewing Wins Silver and Bronze Medals at the 2019 Great American Beer Festival®

SAN DIEGO – October 7, 2019Coronado Brewing Company is honored to announce it took home a silver and bronze medal at the 2019 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) competition, the world’s largest commercial beer competition. The GABF, presented by the Brewers Association, recognizes the most outstanding beers produced in the United States. Gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded on October 5 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, in 107 beer categories covering 174 different beer styles (including all subcategories), establishing the best examples of each style in the country.

Coronado Brewing Company (Production Facility) was recognized in the competition’s second-largest category, American-style India Pale Ale, with 342 entries. Coronado’s Weekend Vibes IPA was awarded a bronze medal, beating out hundreds of entries from around the country. Weekend Vibes IPA was launched in October 2018 and since then, has quickly become the company’s second best-selling beer and has received numerous accolades and fan support. “Of all the awards I could choose to win, winning in the IPA category at GABF is at the top of the list,” says Mark Theisen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. “I’m so proud of Weekend Vibes IPA taking bronze in the American IPA category. We put so much time and energy into nailing the recipe, and to get that validation from our peers is amazing.”

In addition to Weekend Vibes IPA taking a bronze in the IPA category, the company also took a silver medal for its Freebooter Barleywine (Pub Facility) in the Barley Wine-style Ale Category. “Freebooter is an American-style barleywine that our innovation brewer, Bart Gumpert, created,” says Theisen. “To medal in a category with such heavy hitting beers is a huge accomplishment. We’re stoked to have people try this small-batch beer while they can!”

In the 33rd edition of the GABF competition, 9,497 entries were submitted to the general competition, along with 113 Pro-Am and 70 Collaboration entries. The beer was made by 2,295 breweries from across the nation, with entries from all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Judging took place over the course of three days, with an international panel of 322 judges from 18 countries. “This year’s GABF competition was the largest and most competitive to date,” said Chris Swersey, competition manager, Great American Beer Festival. “The beers and talent were as impressive as ever, and I’m thrilled to congratulate this year’s winners for their achievements in brewing.”.

Coronado’s Weekend Vibes IPA is available in 16oz can six packs and on draft, throughout the company’s distribution network. Freebooter Barleywine is currently available at the company’s three locations, while it lasts.

SAN DIEGO – September 19, 2019Coronado Brewing Company is thrilled to announce a new year-round collaboration with lifestyle and apparel brand, Salty Crew. This partnership unites two iconic San Diego brands, whose roots both aim to connect with the water; Coronado Brewing’s “stay coastal” ethos perfectly aligns with Salty Crew’s mission to bring watermen back to their core: the ocean. “We have known the Salty Crew founders for a long time—they frequent our Tasting Room and they have history with several of our staff,” says Brandon Richards, CEO, Coronado Brewing Company. “When they approached us about brewing a one-off beer for a movie premiere, we realized there was an opportunity to make this much bigger by pursuing a year-round offering.”

The result is Salty Crew Blonde Ale, an easy-drinking boat beer perfect for days spent on the water. “It was important to the Salty Crew team to make a beer that was crisp, easy drinking and available in cans,” says Richards. “This beer is equally at home on a boat or enjoyed on with friends after a surf session.” Salty Crew Blonde is brewed with a blend of two-row, wheat and pilsner malt balanced by Nugget and Saaz hops for a touch of pleasant bitterness. Perfectly balanced and light-bodied, this dry and refreshing beer is a sessionable 4.5% ABV for maximum enjoyment. 

“We are stoked to be partnering with our friends at Coronado,” says Jared Lane, Co-Founder, Salty Crew. “We’ve been involved in everything from the beer development to the branding, and we can’t wait for our fans to try this,” says Lane. “It was important for us to work with a brewery that understands our vision and aligns with our brand. Coronado gets that we’re more than just fishing or surfing—we’re about getting back to enjoying the water, in all its forms.” Salty Crew Blonde will debut at Coronado’s Main Brewery & Tasting Room on Saturday, October 12.

Salty Crew and Coronado will hold an official launch party in late October/early November (date TBD). The kick-off event will feature live music by Puerto, as well as back-to-back screenings of Salty Crew’s movies, Finding Refuge in the Sea and Sink or Swim: The Movie. The event will also mark the debut screening of Salty Crew’s trailer for its upcoming movie, Thrill Seekers and Risk Takers, which releases in March 2020. Details for the launch party will be posted to Coronado’s Instagram page once finalized.  

Salty Crew Blonde Ale will launch on draft and in 12oz can six-packs. The beer will be available exclusively in San Diego through 2019. Salty Crew Blonde will be available throughout Coronado’s distribution network for broader retail availably in late January 2020. For more information about the beer and the launch party, visit Stay Salty. Cheers.

Coronado Brewing Debuts Third Beer in 2019 Art Series: Tiki Sunset Sour

SAN DIEGO – September 17, 2019Coronado Brewing Company is releasing Tiki Sunset Sour, the third installment of its 2019 Art Series. Coronado is proud to support emerging artists by featuring a fan-submitted Instagram photo on each of its quarterly releases. The third winner of the 2019 contest is Cody Poynor, a California-based landscape and aerial photographer. Poynor’s epic photo of a silhouetted surfer against a pink sunset is the inspiration for Tiki Sunset Sour.

Tiki Sunset is a kettle sour inspired by a classic tiki cocktail called the Chi-Chi. A close cousin to the Piña Colada, the Chi-Chi is made with pineapple, toasted coconut, and macadamia nuts. Tiki Sunset is a refreshing kettle sour brewed with all the flavors of a Chi-Chi cocktail, as well as the addition of lactose, for a smooth and refreshing taste of the islands. “We wanted to brew a kettle sour that is tart but not overly sour, allowing the pineapple, coconut, and macadamia nuts to shine through,” says Mark Theisen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. “We are really happy with how it came out, and we’re excited for fans to get this limited-release beer while they can!”

Tiki Sunset Sour is available in 16oz can 4-packs and on draft, beginning Friday, September 20, at each of Coronado’s three locations.

SAN DIEGO – July 16, 2019Coronado Brewing Company is proud to announce a refreshed look for its Coastal Classics core beer lineup. As one of San Diego’s most established craft breweries, Coronado Brewing has gone through several branding iterations throughout its 23 years in business, with the latest version taking the brand in a bold, vibrant direction. “Coronado has evolved over the years, but we’ve never lost sight of our coastal roots,” says Brandon Richards, CEO, Coronado Brewing Company. “This brand refresh is the next step in our evolution to ‘stay coastal’ in a relaxed and not-so-literal way,” says Richards.

As a craft brewery with roots on Coronado Island, the company’s branding has always drawn inspiration from the coast. Over the years, the branding has evolved from muted, darker colors to the current light blue packaging that the company rebranded to in late 2014. The new direction takes the packaging to a clean white background with bold, banded color waves differentiating each of the Coastal Classics core brands, including Orange Ave. Wit, Mermaid’s Hoppy Red, and Islander IPA. “We wanted the refresh to pop off the shelf,” says Richards. “The new look is very clean and really gives prominence to both the brand and beer style, allowing for consumers to quickly identify our beers on a crowded shelf.”

The brand refresh was done in-house, led by Kyle Chapman, son of co-founder Ron Chapman. The Coastal Classics refresh complements the fresh direction the company took with its New Wave series of 16oz canned beers, including Weekend Vibes IPA, Never Better Double IPA, and Leisure Lagoon Hazy Pale Ale. “We are anchoring our portfolio with clean white backgrounds and bold use of color,” says Richards. “Our 16 oz cans are resonating with the primary beer drinking consumers and we wanted to capitalize on that momentum by breathing new life into our classic beers.”

The new packaging will have a staggered market entry with refreshed Orange Ave. Wit and Islander IPA 12oz bottles entering the market late July. Mermaid’s Red 12oz glass will follow in the fall. Refreshed Orange Ave Wit. And Islander IPA 12oz cans, along with 22oz glass of all three brands, will enter the market as current package inventory depletes over the summer.

Coronado Brewing Launches Art Series #2: Salt Spray Sour Margarita Gose

SAN DIEGO – May 16, 2019Coronado Brewing Company is releasing the second of its 2019 Art Series cans, with Salt Spray Sour. The company is proud to support emerging artists by featuring a fan-submitted Instagram photo on each of its quarterly releases. The company’s first release, Cosmic Ocean Brut IPA, was incredibly well-received, and was even named one of the “30 Best Looking Beer Cans in America—2019.”  The winning photo for this second release was shot by ocean & surf photographer, Ryan Szot, of Cardiff By the Sea, CA. The photo features an aerial shot of a surfer in turquoise blue waters and perfectly captures the refreshing nature of the liquid inside the can.

Salt Spray Sour was inspired by warm summers in San Diego, and the desire for an easy-drinking beer for the season. “We thought the gose-style would be perfect for summer because its tart but not too sour, and the touch of sea salt makes you want to take another sip,” says Shawn Steele, Director of Brewing Operations, Coronado Brewing Company. “The lime, paired with the salt, makes this our fun interpretation of a margarita. We can’t wait for people to try it!” says Steele. Salt Spray Sour Margarita Gose pushes the boundaries on the style, coming in at 6.0% ABV, while maintaining its drinkability.

Salt Spray Sour will debut at Coronado Brewing’s three locations on Friday, May 24, in 16oz 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. As part of the launch, Coronado is partnering with Mix it Up San Diego to recreate Szot’s photo for an interactive sip & paint party at the Tasting Room. For more information about Salt Spray Sour and the Sip & Paint event, visit Stay Coastal. Cheers.
