(San Diego, CA) – Coronado Brewing Company is celebrating 20 years of defining the West Coast craft beer movement. What began as a dream to open a brewpub on the idyllic island of Coronado, grew into something so much bigger than either of the Chapman brothers ever could have dreamed. “When we opened our doors in 1996, San Diego wasn’t yet known for craft beer. We wanted to create a family business where friends could enjoy quality beer and food in a laid back, beachy atmosphere,” said Rick Chapman, President and Cofounder of Coronado Brewing Co. “The company’s growth has far exceeded our expectations, and 20 years in, we’re just getting started.”
To celebrate the milestone occasion, Coronado Brewing Co. is releasing a limited-edition 20th Anniversary Imperial IPA. “Each year we brew a huge, hopped-up Imperial IPA for our Anniversary,” said Ryan Brooks, Brewmaster. “This year’s version is bursting with tropical notes from a blend of Citra, Mosaic and Hallertau Blanc hops.” The beer will be available beginning July 1 in 18 states including Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey, Nevada, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Wisconsin, Rhode Island, and Florida.
In addition to the commemorative beer, Coronado Brewing Co. is hosting an Anniversary bash at the main
brewery and tasting room in San Diego. The party takes place on Saturday, July 30th from 4pm-9pm. $15 tickets include admission into the event, a keepsake glass, beer ticket, and entry into the raffle for Coronado gear. The event will feature 20 beers for 20 years, local music by CHUGBOAT, and several gourmet food trucks, including Seoul Man and BFD Sandwiches. Tickets and more information available
here. Stay Coastal. Cheers.

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. Today CBC stays true to their San Diego roots, brewing abundantly hoppy West Coast-style ales, which are available today in 18 US states and twelve countries. In addition to the long-established pub in Coronado, the company opened a tasting room inside their newly built San Diego production facility in early 2013, and a tasting room and restaurant in Imperial Beach, California in 2014. Coronado Brewing Company was honored in 2014 with one of the brewing industry’s most prestigious awards-World Beer Cup Champion Brewery and Brewmaster for a Mid-size Brewing Company.
