San Diego, CA - September 26, 2017 - Fall is in the air, and cold brew is on our minds. Coronado Brewing Company is celebrating the changing of the seasons-as much as one can, in San Diego-with the release of Early Bird Cold Brew Milk Stout. The beer was originally brewed last year as an R&D small-batch for San Diego Beer Week, and it was so well-received that the company brought it back on a larger scale this year, in both 22oz bottles and 12oz can six-packs.
"Early Bird starts as a classic milk stout," says Mark Theisen, Lead Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. "We originally brewed this for a beer and donut event, so we wanted to have fun by adding coffee as an ode to it being a breakfast beer." Coronado approached its neighbors down the street, award-winning Bird Rock Coffee & Roasters. After several cuppings, the team decided on a robust French Roast, and the final beer uses more than one pound of coffee per barrel of beer. "You can really taste the coffee in Early Bird. It adds a lot of complexity and pairs really well with the chocolate and complex maltiness," says Theisen. "
Early Bird Cold Brew Milk Stout hits shelves late September and will be available throughout the company's distribution footprint. For more information about Early Bird, visitwww.coronadobrewing.com. Stay Coastal. Cheers.
Enjoy a cold brew experience beyond your morning expectations.
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 16 US states and twelve 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.
