Coronado Leisure Lagoon Hazy Pale Ale hits the brewery’s distribution network this week.
This hazy new pale ale is a blend of the best aspects of East Coast and West Coast pale ales and brewed with West coast hops. Using London III yeast, Coronado touts Leisure Lagoon pale ale as a brighter and juicier than a typical west coast pale ale.
“We spent a lot of time experimenting with different hop profiles and alcohol percentages,” says Steele. “At the end of the day, this is the beer that we all want to drink. It’s got the classic piney, dank, citrus hop character, with more fruitiness and softer mouthfeel from the yeast. We’re stoked with how it turned out and we think our fans will love it, too. It’s perfectly crushable.”
16-ounce cans of Coronado Leisure Lagoon debuted February 15th all brewery locations, hitting full distribution this week.
Style: Hazy Pale Ale
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.

Coronado Brewing Company (Coronado, CA) has released Stupid Stout this week. The beer is a part of the Southern California brewer’s Crown Series.
Coronado Stupid Stout got started as an English stout in 2008, only to return as a “west coast recipe” in 2011.
The deep, dark, vicious brew stands up to other imperial stouts as well as the test of time, delivering, defined, robust, chocolaty, notes with hint of hop freshness. As this beer ages, those big flavors mellow, leaving behind a smooth, balanced sipper. It’s the perfect beer to warm up with as winter cold sets in, or as part of a vertical tasting session many years from now.
Coronado Stupid Stout will be available in 22oz bottles and draft in 13 states.
Style: Imperial Stout
Malts: 2-row, ESB, Chocolate, Roasted Barley, C-120, Black Malt Hops: Nugget
