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”.
