t0rin0  (1516) Do Not Resuscitate, California | November 1, 2013
Visited October 2013.

Iíve been wanting to check out Coronado for a number of years now and finally got the chance. Thereís always some reason why I couldnít. They do a really cool vintage car race out here every year that I was hoping to couple with a trip to the brewery the last few years. Maybe next year... Anyway, the pub is only two blocks from the water and if youíre on the patio you can see San Diego a little bit. Inside is a bit disappointing compared to outside but itís still a nice place. The tables arenít too smashed together, the servers were nice, the food was good, and they have a lot of beers on tap, many of which I had never had before.

The burger was the Islander Burger and was pretty good. Iíll mention that it was cooked about medium when I ordered it medium rare, so thatís not bad. The burger had some pineapple and teriyaki on it. Iím a sucker for peppers on burgers (in this case the Baja Burger) but the server talked me into the Islander instead. The beer list is kind of ridiculous. Iíve been ticking Coronado beers for five years and they managed to have at least half a dozen new ones for me, some of which were pretty good.

Parking can be a pain, the prices are high, and the place can be crowded, but all in all I enjoyed this quite a bit and would gladly return. Maybe next year in October for the vintage car race.

Visited during SD Beer Week, a 5 or so minute stroll from the ferry terminal a modern looking brewpub, tasting flights are available, just fill in a postcard with you choice of 5. Offer a few souvenirs and some unusual items, nice feel to the place, sat at the bar and got served efficiently, scooping in the range quickly. Nice place. Worth the journey and some nice views of San Diego into the bargain.

Visited on Sunday 20/04/14 around 5pm, located just over 5 minutes walk from the ferry stop to SD. The place was starting to fill out with Sunday evening diners but they were happy for me to take a table of 4 despite the fact I wasnt eating. Modern looking brewpub with brew kit visible, function kind of place, patio out front which was full and a decent vibe about the place. 23 taps dispensing 6 regulars and fairly impressive 17 seasonals/one offs. Tasting flight was $11 for 5, the service was prompt and most beers decent. Well worth a trip out to!

Lovely brewpub with outdoor patio and lots of flowers in lovely part of SD. On the upscale side but unpretentious. We sat in the restaurant bc we needed food but later realized the bartender is quite knowledgeable and friendly and so would sit at the bar next time. Best part is theirs are above-average beers.

(Visited 07/2008): Coronado Brewing is located not too far over the bridge from San Diego on Orange ave, near the water. There is street parking on both sides of the establishment.

The exterior is brick and hanging baskets. The inside is nice, with lots of wood and brick and greenery. The bar area is on the left side, with restaurant seating on the right.

The beer selection at CBC is fair. They range from Golden to ESB to a couple IPAs. The beers were all average to above average. Our server told us there were no samples available but a quick trip to the bar proved her wrong.

Service was decent on a weekday evening. Despite our server not bothering to even try to get us a couple beer samples, the bartender made up for it.

The food is pretty good, I had a fish sandwich that was very tasty.

Overall the beer alone is not reason enough to visit here, but the location and food tip the scales enough to make it a worthwhile stop.

Visited here in August 1997 in my fledgling beer nerd days and loved it. Let me go back before I seal my rating!

The beers are solid here, as is the service. 3 drink limit and they only sell pints, no tasters nor 10oz. Very peculiar. Otherwise, this is really one brewpub that should be visited in SD.

Getting to Coronado means buying a ticket at the ferry booth. They pass every hour and take about 20 minutes to get to destination from which you have less than a 10-minute walk to reach the brewpub. While the place looks like a modern restaurant, it still feels vacation-like being there. Since SD does not really have so many world-class brewpubs in its inner city, I found the detour well worth it, enjoyed two fine pints of IPA and a tasty hummus plate. The service was straightforward, but prompt and the prices were actually lower than I expceted. All in all, a worthwhile destination that Iíd call a must if you spend anything over two days in the city. + itís pretty much on the way to Hotel del Coronado if you intended to visit that spot.

A bit soulless brewpub in Coronado. Service was friendly and prompt, beers decent and prices reasonable but something was missing. But it wasnít the wi-fi. This might sound negative but it isnít.

Excellent spot. Really nice relaxed yet classy vibe. 24 beers on, flights available. Great service. Some really excellent beers as well - not all of them, but several.
