My wife and I arrived here about 10 minutes after it opened on a Friday mid-morning after paying a visit to the historic Del Coronado Hotel. We parked just off of Orange Ave. and walked up Orange to get to the brewpub. What a cute, clean area. We stopped to say hi to a snow white, long haired Tom cat named Sam. He was just chilliní on the sidewalk. Coronado Brewingís storefront is very attractive--brick with a hanging wooden sign, brass lettering above, with an adjacent painted Coronado emblem. The inside is very nice with wood everywhere. Brew kettles and fermenters are visible behind the bar. The service was pleasant, accommodating, and friendly. In fact, Ron Chapman, the CEO and co-founder had observed me taking notes on all the beers I was trying. He came over to introduce himself and tell me a little about the history of the brewery and his excitement about the craft brew explosion in San Diego. Coronado was among a handful of craft brewers in the San Diego area before anyone even really knew what "craft beer" meant. Flights are available. I wonít review the beers here, Iíve done that for each individual one I tried. Suffice it to say that Coronado has positioned itself solidly in one of the most competitive, growing artisan beer markets in the world. I was very impressed. I canít wait to go back. This time for some lunch or dinner in addition to a few pints.

We sat at the bar as everyone at tables was eating, and it was a busy evening. Some beers better than others. The Baby Idiot IPA at just 3.9% abv was very tasty. An interesting boat ride from San Diego (which goes from the quayside by the railroad station)

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.

Iíve been to CBC several times. The ambiance is great, with firepits and cool craftsman style to the place. The beers are limited to CBC offerings, which are ok but not great. The food is above average.

We visit the brewpub just during lunch time. So it was pleasant busy. A nice decorated bar. On one side the brewery behing a glass wall and at the other side the kitchen. In the middle there was the bas. With a friendly staff. There were several beers of there own available.

This is a popular place. On July 3rd we had to wait at least 45 min. for a table while the other joints on the strip were half full. We were lucky to get a parking spot just one block away. While waiting, I bought one of their T-shirts. Also at the Deli next door I got a nice Scottish Imp. Stout to take home. Our waiter was friendly and brought the beer sampler right away. Later he brought the 3 remaining Coronado beers that they had on tap. The Philly cheese steak was good.

Terminus  (333) Las Cruces, New Mexico | July 19, 2011
decent place, but not great. However, they do make a few really tasty beers. The food is so-so (patty melt) and the service is just above average. usually have about 12 beers on at a time with a couple guest taps. The easiest way to get there is to take the water taxi from the SD convention center and just walk a couple blocks. It was fast and inexpensive because parking can be a bitch on the island.

Ambience a bit lacking during a weekday lunch and decor is standard brewpub. Selection of CBC beers represents most styles and the Idiot IPA and Black IPA I had were very good. Had the ahi sandwich seared, but the fish wasnít fresh enough to be served that way and the waitress should have known that. Service was quick and attentive, prices on the high side, which youíd expect for Coronado. Iíd visit again and would like to go back in the evening.

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.

This place was a little more commercial than i was hoping for but they had some decent beers and my buddy got some good food. I will probably go back at some point...but not before checking out other places.
