3 Ways to Spend Valentine’s Day with Coronado Brewing

This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday, which also happens to be the day after the 2022 Super Bowl. Not sure what to do for Valentine’s Day? Coronado Brewing has you covered. There are many different ways to celebrate love, especially since all three of our locations offer varying experiences. Follow along for three different ways you can celebrate Valentine’s Day in 2022.

1. With your Family and Fluffy-Friends at the

Bay Park Tasting Room

Coronado’s Tasting Room is an ideal spot for the entire family to share a meal together. Our outdoor patio-area is dog-friendly, so even your fluffiest family member can join in on the Valentine’s fun. The Knox menu includes a variety of delicious appetizers, specialty pizzas, organic hard cider and more. We suggest taking home a four-pack or two of our organic hard cider, coming in the flavors: Nice & Dry or Superfruit with Acai Berry. As of right now, our Bay Park Tasting Room is the only CBC location selling our canned cider to-go, so take advantage and stock up while you’re there. Our patio area has outdoor heaters, so you can sit outside anytime during the day. Order a few specialty pizzas for the entire family to split, and say cheers to your loved ones this Valentine’s Day.

We suggest you purchase a mixed-pack of our hard seltzers, which includes three unique flavors such as Strawberry Lemonade, Ginger Lime and Tangerine with Peach. Hosting a CBC-themed picnic for all your closest friends is the way to spend quality time together in honor of Valentine’s Day.

The pub menu is the most sophisticated, offering a variety of dishes from seafood pesto pasta, to wood-fired BBQ ribs, Atlantic salmon, and so much more.

What Even Is A Shandy?

At the beginning of 2021, our brewers at Coronado Brewing decided to spice things up for the new year. After finding the perfect combination of ripe citrus and wheat ale, they were able to brew an incredibly refreshing shandy with a West Coast twist. Orange Avenue Shandy is a refreshing wheat ale brewed with juicy citrus to keep your tastebuds happy. Since the release of this hybrid style ale, we’re often met with the question

What is a Shandy???

History of the Shandy

The term “shandygaff” was first introduced in 19th century New England. Shortened to ‘shandy,” the term was used to describe a blend of beer with any kind of non-alcoholic drink. The English typically crafted their shandy’s using ginger beer; however, any citrus-flavored beverage usually did the trick. Charles Dickens once wrote about shandies, exclaiming they were “the perfect alliance between beer and pop.” As shandies became more popular in English culture, the ale spread rapidly throughout Europe.

Though shandies were originally created as beer mixed with ginger-ale or ginger-beer, other European cultures used various citrus beverages to make them their own. For example, Germany’s shandy is typically made with lemon and is known as a “Radler.” Radlers adapted from the name Radlermass, or “cyclist litre.” Radlers were first made by Franz Kugler when he accidentally ran out of beer and had to mix it with lemon soda to keep the sales going. As lemon was introduced to the world of shandies, other flavors like grapefruit and orange came into play.

Narragansett Beer, Karbach Brewing Company, and Leinenkugel’s are three popular companies that craft shandies and radlers.

Orange Avenue Shandy

Why did we decide to make our own Shandy? For the last 25 years, CBC fans may have seen us crafting beers using citrus flavors before, ie. one of CBC’s most popular beers of all time, Orange Ave Wit. While they share a similar name, customers can think of Orange Ave Shandy as the “younger cousin” of Orange Ave Wit. Sure, OAW may have taught OA Shandy a thing or two, but Shandy brings a totally new set of flavors to the game, bursting with orange juiciness. “Orange Avenue Shandy isn’t like your traditional shandy, it’s brewed with orange and honey to give it a lighter, crisp taste,” says Bart Gumpert, CBC innovation brewer. He continued on by saying “Orange Avenue Shandy was brewed for our customers to enjoy a new style of beer, especially something that’s refreshing and easy to sip on.” Most shandies are best on hot days during the summer season; however; our shandy is crafted for year-round enjoyment. Don’t let another hot summer day ruin your vibe, stay refreshed and try an Orange Avenue Shandy today.

Hot On the Heels of Win at Nations Most Prestigious Beer Competition, Coronado Brewing Company and Salty Crew Partner For Long Term Deal

SAN DIEGO – October 22, 2020Coronado Brewing Company has announced the signing of a multi-year deal with lifestyle brand Salty Crew. The partnership unites two iconic San Diego brands, whose roots both aim to connect with the water; Coronado Brewing’s “Stay Coastal” ethos aligns with Salty Crew’s mission to bring people who love the water back to their core: the ocean. The two companies began with a small collaboration brew back in May of 2019 for the premiere of Salty Crew’s movie, “Sink or Swim.” It was then, the two companies realized the potential for something much larger and thus, Salty Crew Blonde Ale was born. The beer, now in 12 oz can 6-packs, has since gained national attention after winning a silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival in the Golden or Blonde Ale category.

Salty Crew Blonde Ale is an easy-drinking boat beer perfect for days spent on the water. It is brewed with a blend of two-row, wheat and pilsner malt balanced by German Hallertau and Czech 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.

Since its soft launch in 2019, Salty Crew Blond has quickly become one of Coronado’s top-performing brands. “When we first partnered with Salty Crew last year, we thought it would be cool to do something fun together as we were both big fans of each other’s brands. We quickly realized that we had a hit on our hands. We developed a true friendship from working together and I think that will create a dynamic partnership for years to come,” says Clinton Smith, CCO at Coronado Brewing Company. “Salty Crew Blonde had a massive launch in early 2020 before the pandemic, and despite the challenges, the beer has resonated at retail and with our fans. We are very happy with this addition to our portfolio of beers.”

“We are stoked to be partnering up for the long-haul with our friends at Coronado,” says Jared Lane, Co-Founder, Salty Crew. “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.”

The partnership also welcomes local commercial fisherman, surfer, and all-around waterman, Lucas Dirkse, to the team as Coronado’s first brand ambassador. “When you sit down at a restaurant in San Diego, chances are you’ll find something on the menu that Coronado brewed locally and that a fisherman like myself caught locally,” says Dirkse. “We’re both San Diego natives providing our city with the fresh, sustainable products that make SD beer and seafood some of the best in the world.”

Salty Crew Blonde will be available at Coronado’s three locations as well as select markets in their distribution network.

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.

Our second action will be to address diversity and inclusiveness within our company and leadership teams. This work will be led by Eddie Buchannon, our Vice President of Business Development, and will explore ways we can further diversify our company and continue to build stronger relationships with communities of color.

We are committed to being a diverse and inclusive company. We are committed to finding more ways to help humanity, better ways to serve our communities, and be a more pronounced voice in the conversation about the social injustice communities of color face. Together we can make a difference.
