This was the 6th stop during a recent trip to San Diego. Located a 20-minute ferry ride from downtown in Coronado – which is not an island – Coronado Brewing is housed in a generic looking building a few blocks from the ferry disembarkation. Upon entry, there is a dark, crowded dining area with a crowded L-shaped bar, where the locals congregate. The glass enclosed brewing tanks peek out from behind the bar.

During my lunchtime visit, there were some 14 house crafts, including five core beers available – I quaffed the Island IPA, Mermaid Red Ale, Four Brothers and something called Black Sails. The food was decent and filling (I had an Albacore Tuna Melt, if you must know.) The service was attentive

The reasonable Happy Hour prices made up for the $4.25 boat ride across the harbor. Of course, many CBC beers are available downtown, but why give up a chance to take a ferry boat?

Large brewpub on Coronado Island. Sat in large dining room with a dozen tables and booths. Other rooms, but I didn't move about much so not sure how big the bar was. 16 nicely assorted beers on tap, the one I had was very tasty. Friendly server. Did not try the food.

Super upscale vibe, nice restaurant kind of deal. Bar is packed generally but still doable. Selection is pretty good, they have some limited stuff on draught. Good for a night out, not really a quick hit kind of place.

Visited here with Da Boss today for lunch. It has been at least 10 years since our last visit.

Vibe was okay but it was the lunch crowd. It was pretty light when we first got there but the pub was fairly full when we left.

Quality of the beers are solid but not spectacular. You can tell the consistency is very good.

Service was okay, she did not want to chat at all and was not overly friendly.

Selection was pretty ample with at least 20-25 house brews available.

Food was a mix bag. My pulled pork sandwich was solid whereas Da Boss' fish tacos were a little under spiced and a little overcooked (they were serviceable but nothing to make you say wow).

Overall it was a pleasant time sitting on the patio looking at Orange Avenue. Worth a stop if visiting the island and you are an IPA fan.

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.
