A few friends and I visited to Cornonado brewery early in the afternoon during a San Diego Chargers playoff game. The place was nearly full and most people were watching the game, of course, so the atmosphere was a lot of fun. It wasn't over the top crazy like the sports bar down the street appeared to be (with people spilling out onto the sidewalk). The food was pretty standard, good brewpub food; the prices were a bit high, though, with most sandwiches ringing up $10+. They were out of Red Devil (which was the beer I most wanted to try, unfortunately), and were also out of their own PA and IPA (maybe that's because they'd had high traffic due to the game, but it was still disappointing since I don't get down to Coronado very often). I was also a bit disappointed that they do not offer taster sets. I had their other red ale, their porter, and an IPA from Green Flash. Their red and their porter were both good beers. The red was very well-balanced with malty sweetness and hops. Some porters seem overly smokey to me, but theirs wasn't smokey at all--rather it was more sweet, slightly chocolatey. Coronado has a fun skateboard park nearby, and since I liked the brewery pretty well, I am likely to go back in the not too distant future. (1,250 characters)

Standard brew pub. Prices are a bit on the high side, but it is Coronado Island, so it's to be expected. Beers were middle of the road at best. (145 characters)

After living in SD for 36 years, I finally stopped in for a bite to eat and a couple of beers.

What do you expect for a lunch time vibe. This place reminds me of being on an island bungalow. This place is a quality establishment that offers quality craft beer and food. Well, it is in Coronado. The beer selection was very good. I had an Idiot IPA and 19th Anniversary IIPA. Good stuff. The vegetarian burger was also good to go.

I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Coronado. (496 characters)

Note: this is for the Imperial Beach location, which is not an option on BA yet. Little L-shaped place right across the street from the beach and a block from the pier... a tiny IB block. Seating is self-select, ordering done at the front counter. If crowded (went on a summer Friday and it was fine - farmers market on the pier also going on), get seats first then order. Small - in a good way - set of burgers, sandwiches, salads, pastas, apps. Full compliment of CBC brews on tap.... and 12s and 22s and growlers and 6-ers and...

Had the ceasar. That seems boring, but it is a benchmark test - ther dressing must be properly salty and lemony for me. It was. A bit thick, which I like. Also had the ceviche, which was very fresh and properly tart. Paired with the For Days Session IPA, because driving. Kid had a burger. That thing was pretty big, but it runs juicy so I'd flip it and eat it Hodad style (burger on top, garnish on bottom) to avoid soggy bun. (962 characters)

Food was good. So was beer. Several options other than the standards you can pick up at the store. Still, left a little underwhelmed. Especially with all the other players in the San Diego craft beer scene. (206 characters)
