    Weekend Vibes IPA and Never Better IIPA will be available in new 16oz six-pack cans throughout the company’s distribution network


    SAN DIEGO – September 27, 2018 – In a company first, Coronado Brewing is debuting a new year-round series of beers in freshly designed 16oz six-pack cans. Weekend Vibes IPA and Never Better Double IPA are set to debut in October in 16oz cans, 22oz bottles and draft, and feature fresh branding and can imagery. A third beer – Leisure Lagoon Hazy Pale Ale – is forthcoming in spring 2019. “The demand for 16oz cans has skyrocketed over the past few years,” noted Coronado Brewing CEO Brandon Richards. “We’re excited to fulfill this demand in the market and believe we offer beer drinkers a great value with the 16oz six-packs.”

    Weekend Vibes is a San Diego-style IPA brewed with a blend of Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe hops for vibrant notes of tropical fruit and citrus. California Ale Yeast accentuates the fruity hop flavors and provides a clean and refreshingly dry finish. Never Better, on the other hand, is an unfiltered double IPA featuring Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe and Vic Secret hops for rich notes of mango, passionfruit and resinous pine. “As a pioneer in the San Diego craft brewing scene, we’re stoked to put our spin on the San Diego-style IPA,” says Mark Thiesen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. “Weekend Vibes and Never Better are some of the tastiest IPAs we’ve put out to date and we couldn’t be prouder of these beers. Both these IPAs can hold their own amongst the other great IPAs in San Diego.”

    Weekend Vibes and Never Better hit store shelves beginning October and will be available throughout the company’s distribution network. Eager fans can get a sneak peek at all Coronado locations on Friday, September 28 with six-packs available for purchase before the beer hits broader retail availability in October.

    About Coronado Brewing Company

    In 1996, when craft beer was still a foreign term and San Diego County was home to only a handful of breweries, the Chapman brothers Ron and Rick opened a brewpub in their hometown of Coronado. Today CBC stays true to their San Diego roots, brewing abundantly hoppy West Coast-style ales, which are available today in 14 US states and 12 countries. In addition to the long-established pub in Coronado, the company opened a tasting room inside its San Diego production facility in 2013, and a tasting room and restaurant in Imperial Beach, California in 2014. Coronado Brewing Company was honored in 2014 with one of the brewing industry's most prestigious awards—World Beer Cup Champion Brewery and Brewmaster for a Mid-Size Brewing Company.

    Coronado bottles were in the Hampton Roads area a few years ago, but were yanked out I believe... wondering if we'll see these.

    The beer sounds good. The cans look like alcoholic seltzer cans at first glance, probably a smart marketing move.

    How to stand out amongst the 16oz haze crowd:

    rule 1) don't make your labels look like a Fruity Pebbles cereal box. Because by trying to stand out in that method you'll actually just blend in.

    I'll definitely try these if I see them. I've enjoyed all of their beers that I've tried, especially Islander IPA. Their prices are reasonable too. I'm really getting sick of new breweries charging $15 bucks/ 4 pk for their new hazy IPA/NE IPA/ milkshake IPA.

    I like Coronado, always have. I will try these, particularly what looks to be a new WCIPA/San Diego style at 6.8% which is right in my fav zone.

    Not a huge fan of 16oz cans but I definitely prefer 16oz six pack versus the traditional four pack

    I like their beers. I pick them up when in Jersey, which is not frequently these days. Hope they come to NY soon.

    I've always dug Coronado beers, if I see them I'll try them.

    I'd love to try them, unfortunately though their brews never make it up here.
