My wife and I arrived here about 10 minutes after it opened on a Friday mid-morning after paying a visit to the historic Del Coronado Hotel. We parked just off of Orange Ave. and walked up Orange to get to the brewpub. What a cute, clean area. We stopped to say hi to a snow white, long haired Tom cat named Sam. He was just chillin' on the sidewalk. Coronado Brewing's storefront is very attractive--brick with a hanging wooden sign, brass lettering above, with an adjacent painted Coronado emblem. The inside is very nice with wood everywhere. Brew kettles and fermenters are visible behind the bar. The service was pleasant, accommodating, and friendly. In fact, Ron Chapman, the CEO and co-founder had observed me taking notes on all the beers I was trying. He came over to introduce himself and tell me a little about the history of the brewery and his excitement about the craft brew explosion in San Diego. Coronado was among a handful of craft brewers in the San Diego area before anyone even really knew what "craft beer" meant.

Flights are available. I won't review the beers here, I've done that for each individual one I tried. Suffice it to say that Coronado has positioned itself solidly in one of the most competitive, growing artisan beer markets in the world. I was very impressed. I can't wait to go back. This time for some lunch or dinner in addition to a few pints.

Beer was fresh and the variety was abundant. Good selection of different beers as well as some rarer finds. The service was okay, I did not have food and the vibe was okay too. I was there during lunch time.

A very nice establishment, situated on beautiful Coronado Island. Hard to find if you don't pay attention to where you're going sometimes, but the building is very nice. Food is decent quality, but it's known mostly for it's beer. Had to go to the bar to get my beer, the waiter forgot to bring mine to me. Otherwise good experience.

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.
