The weather outside is getting frightful, which makes it the perfect time to head out west and hit the beach! The HOP swings down to San Diego’s Coronado Island this week for a visit to Coronado Brewing Company. Founded by brothers Ron & Rick Chapman in 1996, the company has grown from humble brewpub to widely renowned craft brewing operation with a steadfast commitment to crafting exceptional beers. Building off the success of their hoppy, West Coast-style ales, Coronado Brewing has expanded their reach to 14 U.S. States and 12 countries, garnering accolades and attention along the way, (most notably the title of “Best Mid-Sized Brewery & Brewmaster at the 2014 World Beer Cup.) Stephen & Gabe take a look at how it started vs how it’s going while sampling several popular beers that offer a slight rebranding to the phrase, “find your beach.”
Featured beers: Mango Farm Hazy IPA & Never Better DIPA. Plus: Stand aside flag football, another new sport is joining the 2024 Olympics and Gabe may try out for the team!
