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. CBC brews abundantly hoppy West Coast-style ales staying true to their San Diego roots. They began distributing their beers throughout the local market, and today you can find Coronado beers in 21 states across the US. In addition to their long established pub in Coronado, the company opened a tasting room inside their newly built San Diego production facility in early 2013. The past year has been very rewarding for the brewery; they opened their new tasting room and restaurant in Imperial Beach, CA. Winning Champion Mid Size Brewery and Brewmaster at World Beer Cup in Denver awarded them with one of the most prestigious distinctions in the industry.
