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

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.

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.

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.

Hit it during happy hour. The BA stout was out. :( Got 3 new beers - one not on the site! Staff was very accommodating. Made change so I could feed the meter (25 cents/hr). The happy hour menu was a good value, and the food was indescribably delicious. Service was way over the usual I see in brewpubs. Cannot recommend this place too strongly. Building has a metal roof and louvers instead of glass for windows. Great venue. 15 beers on tap.

Easy to find location in Coronado. Clean inside with bar and brewing in the middle and tables in the front and back. Freindly service with good knowledge of selection of 12 brews. I tryed the sampler three at a time by their rules. Good food menu and the calamari was a good portion and very good flavor. I enjoyed the visit.

Arrived before opening time, but were invited in inspite. And had a really good chat, about the beers and the history. Early in the day, parking was plenty. Situated in a nice area. We had 6 new beers - that we hadnít earlier had bottled. Interior is your brewpub in the better end with stone floor and dark wooden bar, with some of the brewery visible.

When I came first some years ago they had a rule in place to serve only 3 pints by person. Seems they have lifted this now. Great food, like the Weisswurst Burger, beers are above average. If you combine a round of Golf at Coronado municipal GC with some pints at this brewery thereafter you will have a great day.
