Coronado Brewing Company Celebrates Winter with Two Limited Edition Seasonals
San Diego, CA – October 26, 2016 – Winter is coming, and the crew at Coronado Brewing Company is preparing for the frosty San Diego winter with the release of two limited-edition seasonals. The company is debuting a new winter seasonal 6-pack, Snowy Plover Winter IPA, and bringing back an old favorite, Stupid Stout Imperial Stout. “While we don’t get extreme winters here in San Diego, we do appreciate a good winter warmer,” says Ryan Brooks, Brewmaster, Coronado Brewing Company. “We’re excited to introduce our take on a winter IPA, and we know fans are eagerly awaiting the return of Stupid Stout.”
Named for the endangered local shorebirds, Snowy Plover is a classic West Coast IPA brewed with additional caramel malts for a red hue and richer malt profile. The beer is medium-bodied, 6% ABV, and bursting with bright pine and citrus notes from copious amounts of Simcoe, Centennial, and Chinook hops. Snowy Plover’s rich malt profile stands up to the assertive hoppiness and makes it an excellent pairing with a wide variety of holiday foods, including roasted turkey, stuffing, and grilled meats. “Snowy Plover is the perfect holiday celebration beer,” says Brooks. “It has a ton of hop flavor and the caramel malts make it extremely balanced. It’s a great go-to option for holiday gatherings.” Snowy Plover is available in six-packs, 22oz bottles, and on draft.
The company is also releasing its much anticipated Stupid Stout Imperial Stout. “This is one of my favorite beers because it’s so complex and I love to see how it evolves over time,” says Brooks. “When the beer is fresh, it has ton of coffee notes with a moderate amount of hoppiness. Over time, the hops give way to smooth espresso and cocoa notes,” says Brooks. Stupid Stout is a true winter warmer at 9.0% ABV, with a smooth, roasty finish. The beer is an excellent pairing with grilled steaks and a wide variety of desserts, including chocolate cakes, crème brulee, and tiramisu. Stupid Stout Imperial Stout is available in 22oz bottles and on draft.
