In 1996 brothers Ron and Rick Chapman realized a long-time dream and got ahead of the craft brew curve in a big way, opening a brewpub in the heart of their hometown of Coronado on Aug. 30th. Pioneers of craft brewing, they found themselves in an industry of 1 of 5 in San Diego at that time. They worked with an original brewing system of 10-bbl brewhouse, (3) 10-bbl fermenters and (3) 10-bbl serving tanks.
Now, years later, the brewery’s a lot bigger and they’ve gotten a number of awards. But they’re still following that same dream: brewing exceptionally balanced beer to an ever-growing family that seeks an undeniable coastal vibe, and shares our passion for great beer.
