Please join us and our friends at Coronado Brewing Company in welcoming the month of May with their recent Cinco de Mayo release of Señor Saison. Part of the Coronado, CA company’s imaginative crown series, Señor Saison stays true to its Baja California spirit. This classic Belgian-style ale is infused with a little south of the border flavor and inspiration.

Brewed with piloncillo and jalapeno peppers alongside white sage, Agave syrup and Belgian candied sugar, this beer combines a touch of spice with fruity esters derived from Belgian yeast. The use of hand cut jalapeños add all the flavor of the green pepper without the overwhelming heat often found in some other pepper infused beers. Overall, Señor Saison is a refreshing, medium to strong fruity/spicy ale with a distinctive yellow-orange color, highly carbonated, well hopped, and dry with a quenching acidity. Like the brews of our cross-border amigos, this cerveza has been said to take craft beer to a fresh and interesting place.

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. CBC brews abundantly hoppy West Coast-style ales staying true to their San Diego roots. They began distributing their beers throughout the local market, and today you can find Coronado beers in 21 states across the US and ten countries. In addition to their long established pub in Coronado, the company opened a tasting room inside their newly built San Diego production facility in early 2013.  The past year has been very rewarding for the brewery; they opened their new tasting room and restaurant in Imperial Beach, CA.  Winning Champion Mid Size Brewery and Brewmaster at World Beer Cup in Denver awarded them with one of the most prestigious distinctions in the industry.
