Stupid Stout returns to shelves and taps, also with an updated barrel-aged recipe
Coronado, CA, November 4, 2013 —Stupid Stout, a seasonal American Imperial Stout, is again making its way to craft beer drinkers across the country beginning mid October through January 2014 as part of the Southern California brewer’s Crown Series. This American Imperial Stout was originally brewed by Coronado Brewing Co. in 2008 as an English Stout, then returned with a new West Coast recipe in 2011 to eager fans loving what president and co-‐founder Ron Chapman affectionately calls “a stupid amount of hops”.
This year’s Imperial Stout is a great winter companion and appeals to craft beer lovers who appreciate deep, dark, robust and chocolaty flavors with a bright hint of hop freshness. Stupid Stout will be available in 14 states where Coronado Brewing is sold as well as its pub restaurant in Coronado and tasting room in San Diego. Also on tap will be barrel aged small batch of Stupid Stout, as well.

He doesn’t sing, he doesn’t dance, but CBC’s new restaurant manager certainly tells a good story. And if you’re lucky, you’ll catch his act at the 170 Orange Avenue location.
Johnny “O” Oliphant brings more than 20 years of restaurant and brewing experience to the job. Formerly hailing from La Jolla, by way of Fresno, Texas and Colorado, Johnny O has developed a tradition of spontaneously jumping up on the bar and regaling his customers with stories.

CORONADO – Brandi Williams, the new weekend anchor at KUSI TV-51, will ride in this year’s 37th Annual Coronado Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade. She will be a guest of the Coronado Brewing Company, and ride in their iconic Model T beer truck.
A newcomer to San Diego news but a veteran of national TV, Brandi Williams hosted several coast-to-coast programs before coming to San Diego. Among them were Mark Burnett’s realty TV show, “Toughest Cowboy;” “World’s Biggest Birthday Party,” with Donny Osmond; and Fox TV’s popular New Year’s Eve Party, with Ryan Seacrest.
CORONADO – The Coronado Brewing Company is offering a new food item, and it’s not on the menu. It’s a doggie treat made from brewers’ leftover grain that has been one of CBC’s fastest moving products this month. “Brew Bites” are a healthy snack for the dogs and are the direct result of a unique recycling concept. The all-natural doggie treats contain no corn, no wheat flour, and no soy. Appropriately, the snack comes in a doggie bag, and is quite literally being gobbled up.

Welcome to Behind the Scenes @ CBC! This is the first of many blog posts providing our fans a sneak peek at what’s brewing at the pub, the tasting room, the brewhouse and more.
Don’t come here expecting corporate jargon, mission statements and marketing-geared prose—I’m a terrible writer with no grammar skills to speak of (I even misspelled grammar before this got edited). These will be brief, raw, up-to-the-minute posts that, starting next time, will be heavier on images than words. A picture says a thousand words, so this approach should save me tons of work!
Here goes nothing…
We recently brewed a new beer called Thai-One-On Pale Ale. Motivated by his time on our rooftop garden, CBC chef Kasey Chapman asked our pub brewers, Pete Falletta (Playboy Pete) and Dan Drayne (Boardshorts Dan), if they’d like to brew a specialty beer using fresh basil from the garden.
