Starting this week, Austin beer lovers will start noticing new brews on draft — those of San Diego’s coastal-themed Coronado Brewing.
The beers debut at a happy hour at Waller Creek Pub House on Monday evening, followed by two other happy hours at the Brass Tap Domain Tuesday and Little Woodrow’s Southpark Meadows location on Wednesday. These bars will have Coronado’s core offerings available, including the Orange Avenue Wit, Mermaid’s Red, Islander IPA and newcomer Stingray IPA.
Plus, Tuesday’s happy hour at the Brass Tap Domain will also have the only keg of Idiot IPA in Austin.
Although the initial launch features draft-only versions of Coronado beers, the brewery will eventually start selling six-pack cans and 22 oz. specialty bottles. Texas marks the 19th state for Coronado Brewing to expand into, after first opening as a brewpub 20 years ago on the island of Coronado, a resort city in San Diego County. The brewery has grown at a double-digit pace since.
“San Diego and Austin share a lot of similarities when it comes to appreciating the best life has to offer — and doing it your own way — and we think our brand will resonate with Texans,” Brandon Richards, the COO of Coronado Brewing, said in a news release.
Get a first taste of Coronado Brewing in Austin at 6 p.m. today at Waller Creek Pub. The Brass Tap Domain’s event runs from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
