SAN DIEGO – Coronado Brewing Company is releasing Tiki Sunset Sour, the third installment of its 2019 Art Series. Coronado is proud to support emerging artists by featuring a fan-submitted Instagram photo on each of its quarterly releases. The third winner of the 2019 contest is Cody Poynor, a California-based landscape and aerial photographer. Poynor’s epic photo of a silhouetted surfer against a pink sunset is the inspiration for Tiki Sunset Sour.
Tiki Sunset is a kettle sour inspired by a classic tiki cocktail called the Chi-Chi. A close cousin to the Piña Colada, the Chi-Chi is made with pineapple, toasted coconut, and macadamia nuts. Tiki Sunset is a refreshing kettle sour brewed with all the flavors of a Chi-Chi cocktail, as well as the addition of lactose, for a smooth and refreshing taste of the islands. “We wanted to brew a kettle sour that is tart but not overly sour, allowing the pineapple, coconut, and macadamia nuts to shine through,” says Mark Theisen, Head Brewer, Coronado Brewing Company. “We are really happy with how it came out, and we’re excited for fans to get this limited-release beer while they can!”
Tiki Sunset Sour is available in 16oz can 4-packs and on draft, beginning Friday, September 20, at each of Coronado’s three locations. The beer will be available throughout Coronado’s distribution network beginning the week of September 23. For more information about the beer, visit www.coronadobrewing.com. Stay Coastal. Cheers.

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 its 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.
