About Coronado Brewing
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. The Chapmans brew abundantly hoppy West Coast-style ales, with their early success driving demand outside the brewpub. They began distributing their beers throughout the local market, and today you can find Coronado beers in 13 states across the US. As well as a pub and restaurant, the company opened a tasting room in San Diego in early 2013. For more info, visit the Coronado Brewing website.
