Coronado Brewing Company is the only brewery located on San Diego’s Coronado Island and is known for it’s hoppy brews and good food. The brewery is a local hangout for those lucky enough to live on Coronado Island, and is a destination for the rest of San Diego County. The menu is a mix of pizzas, steaks, burgers, and appetizers, with a short list of their staple beers that cover the gamut of styles of beer. Their year-round beers include Coronado Golden, Orange Avenue Wit, Idiot IPA, Islander IPA, Mermaid’s Red Ale, and Blue Bridge Coffee Stout. In addition, Coronado Brewing makes a number of seasonal and specialty beers throughout the year.
Recently, with the addition of their nearby production brewery in San Diego, Coronado Brewing Company has started to distribute their signature beers beyond the San Diego area. They currently in the process of expanding their distribution territory into other states.
Coronado Brewing Company – Bottom Line
This is nice brew pub, the staff is friendly, they have good food, and most importantly their beer is pretty good to boot. Overall the atmosphere in the brewpub is lively and busy, especially on weekends and evenings, but the place is still quite relaxing, and offers some good people watching from the bar area. Our favorite spot at Coronado Brewing is their patio, especially in the summertime, as it allows you to take in that great Southern California weather, and see some great sunsets.
The bottom line on Coronado Brewing Company is it is worth the visit if you are in the San Diego area. When you go, get the Idiot IPA (or one of their great seasonal beers), and the Green Chili Hummus. If you really want to make a nice day out of it take the ferry to Coronado, it lets off just down the street from the brewery.
