SAN DIEGO – Coronado Brewing Company and Karl Strauss Brewing Co. have come together to brew a unique, innovative new IPA. Core Values, a name that nods to the two companies’ missions, is a West Coast IPA brewed with Pacific Northwest Apples. It’s hop-forward like your favorite San Diego-Style IPAs and finishes dry with a hint of crisp apple. Imagine the breweries’ two flagship IPA’s, Weekend Vibes and Aurora Hoppyalis, crossed with a splash of fresh-pressed apple cider. It’s loaded with hops including Mosaic, Citra, and Simcoe giving the beer super juicy, fruit-forward flavors and aromas of citrus and pine. “You get a pleasant tang from the apple juice, but it’s definitely a hop-forward IPA,” says Mark Theisen, Head Brewer Coronado Brewing Company. “It’s an exciting rollercoaster of flavor from the first sip to the last drop.”
To say these two have been brewing for a long time would be an understatement. Coronado Brewing and Karl Strauss have shaped and developed the San Diego craft beer scene for the past 25 and 32 years respectively. Through it all, they’ve not only shared beers, but they’ve also shared a lot of the same company values. “We’ve been close with the team at Coronado for a long time now,” says Paul Segura, Head Brewer Karl Strauss. “We both share passions for a lot of the same things like surfing, the SoCal brewing spirit, giving back to the communities that support us, and of course making great, award-winning beer. It’s only natural that we collaborate every now and then to brew something rad, together.”
Core Values IPA debuts at Coronado’s three locations on Friday, March 5th. The beer will be available in 16oz can 4-packs and on draft, throughout Coronado’s distribution network. For more information about Core Values IPA, visit www.coronadobrewing.com.
