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.
