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.
