Coronado brews has an assortment of seasonal, limited release, collaborations as well as a year round selection of beers. They will be pouring Punk’In Drublic, Stingray IPA and Seacoast Pilsner at this year’s Taste of Brews. Punk’in Drublic is an imperial pumpkin ale that tastes like warm pumpkin bread with hints of brown sugar and vanilla. Their Stingray IPA will transport you to an island get-a-way with its flavors and aromas of tropical fruits and citrus with accents of nectarine and peach. Lastly, the Seacoast Pilsner is a Czech-style pilsner that pairs perfectly with the coastal beauty that only California can provide. Be sure to check them out at TOBLB on August 20th.
