Coronado Golden, 4.9% ABV, 20 IBU
Pouring as vibrant gold as a perfectly sunny day in San Diego, this light-bodied, delicately hopped session beer is brewed using pilsner malts and our house strain of California ale yeast. The result is a crisp, clean and abundantly refreshing brew that's ideal for everyday enjoyment.

Orange Ave Wit, 5.2% ABV, 12 IBU
This So-Cal take on a traditional witbier honors Coronado's main street, which is home to our brewpub and was once lined with orange trees. Bolstered by orange zest, coriander and orange blossom honey, its Belgium by way of Coronado. Expect a refreshing, light-bodied brew rife with citrus zing and a hint of earthy spice.

Islander IPA, 7.0% ABV, 75 IBU
Named after Coronado Island, our original India Pale Ale is a liquid expression of hometown pride. Centennial, Chinook and Columbus hops combine to provide an explosive burst of piney bitterness and luscious notes of apricot, grapefruit and mango that are sure to evoke imagery of swaying palms and sun-kissed shores.

Mermaid's Red. 5.7% ABV, 64 IBU
Mermaid's Red bucks the shallow mid-range red ale stereotype. Loaded with Cascade hops, it delivers a fresh floral aroma and sharp bitter notes, all while delivering a solid kick of roasted malts that fades seamlessly into a rich, chocolaty finish with hints of clove and caramel.

Blue Bridge Coffee Stout. 5.4% ABV, 30 IBU
Just as the iconic Coronado Bay Bridge connects our island home to the mainland, this java-tinged dry stout, brewed using dark roasted coffee beans from a local San Diego artisanal roaster, provides a bridge uniting craft beer drinkers with CBC's rich, flavorful SoCal brewing traditions.

Idiot IPA, 8.5% ABV, 90 IBU
It doesn't take a genius to know quality West Coast IPA's require a stupid amount of hops. A generous blend of Nugget hops and the four C's - Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Columbus - brings forth a myriad of tropical fruit flavors and a brawny, persistent bitterness that makes for a highly intelligent brew.

I'm pretty sure I've seen dogs there. They have a few outside tables (very comfortable)... That's where I've seen pups. I'm a dog lover, so I get it. Call to confirm just to be safe--
