SAN DIEGO – Coming off the success of North Island IPA, Coronado Brewing is releasing the next beer in its Knoxville Series – Peach Cruiser IPA – in time for summer. Coronado’s Knoxville Series debuted earlier this year and features three special release beers distributed throughout Coronado’s network in six-pack cans, 22oz bottles and on draft. The series offers beer drinkers fun, interesting beers available to buy on store shelves, while supplies last. Peach Cruiser IPA is the second installment in the series and comes off the heels of the very well-received North Island IPA. Early Bird Milk Stout is scheduled as the third release later this year.
Peach Cruiser is a San Diego-style IPA brewed with summer in mind. The beer is brewed using a blend of Mosaic, Citra and Azacca hops, with fresh peach puree added to complement the tropical citrus hoppiness. “When I think of summer, I think of tropical fruit and the beach,” says Mark Thiesen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. “The blend of hops we used brings out all the bright, tropical fruit characteristics you look for in a summer beer, and the fresh peach puree complements and enhances those flavors nicely. The end result is an incredibly easy-drinking and refreshing IPA that’s perfect for outdoor activities.”
Peach Cruiser IPA will debut at all Coronado locations on Friday, April 27 in six-pack cans, 22oz bottles and on draft. The beer will hit broader retail availability in May and will be available to buy on store shelves throughout the company’s distribution network.

We took a San Diego-style IPA and added fresh peach puree to complement the tropical citrus hoppiness. The result is an unfiltered, easy-to-drink IPA with tons of citrus and peach fruitiness and a moderately hoppy/bitter finish.
About Coronado Brewing Company
In 1996, when craft beer was still a foreign term and San Diego County was home to only a handful of breweries, the Chapman brothers Ron and Rick opened a brewpub in their hometown of Coronado. Today CBC stays true to their San Diego roots, brewing abundantly hoppy West Coast-style ales, which are available today in 14 US states and 12 countries. In addition to the long-established pub in Coronado, the company opened a tasting room inside its San Diego production facility in 2013, and a tasting room and restaurant in Imperial Beach, California in 2014. Coronado Brewing Company was honored in 2014 with one of the brewing industry’s most prestigious awards—World Beer Cup Champion Brewery and Brewmaster for a Mid-Size Brewing Company.
