Two years after opening a satellite eatery and tasting room in Imperial Beach, Coronado Brewing Company (CBC) has announced that it will be bringing a much larger project to the South Bay, where the award-winning brewery will be the anchor tenant of a new development that’s in the works for Imperial Beach. Dubbed Bikeway Village, the project spans two 15,000-square-foot sites designed by Studio E Architects; Coronado Brewing will occupy one building while the other will house local Trident Coffee, a bike store and other retail shops.
Over the next 12 to 18 months, CBC will be building out its space to include a 10-barrel brewery and a 7,000-square-foot full-service restaurant with a spacious outdoor area that boasts panoramic views of downtown San Diego while leaving room for eventual expansion into the spirits word with a new distillery; a rep says the distillery is at least and year and a half away. However, you’ll be able to drink beer there as soon as this summer thanks to a temporary tasting room on the site. In a release, Coronado Brewing Company COO Kasey Chapman shared, "We plan on having a mobile beer trailer with 18-20 taps, food trucks, and plenty of outdoor seating. It's going to be an awesome part of the community and we hope it's a place where people of all ages can come and enjoy great beer in a comfortable setting.”
