Coronado Brewing Company Closing Imperial Beach Bar & Restaurant After Nearly 10 Years In San Diego's South County

September 7, 2023

After nearly 10 years in San Diego's South County city of Imperial Beach, Coronado Brewing Company is closing the doors to its most southerly bar & restaurant. 

Brothers Ron and Rick Chapman opened Coronado Brewing as a brewpub in the heart of their home town of San Diego's picturesque Coronado in 1996. Coronado Brewing eventually moved the majority of their brewing operations from Coronado to their Bay Park facility, which was first opened in 2013. 

In 2014, Coronado Brewing took over a restaurant space at 875 Seacoast Drive in Imperial Beach to open their second San Diego area brewpub. At one point, they also planned to launch a second IB location within one-half of the 30,000 square foot Bikeway Village project at 535 Florence Street that is now occupied by Novo Brazil Brewing

Coronado Brewing announced this week that they intend to close their Imperial Beach location by year's end. Although they did not give a specific reason, it was mentioned that "leasing dynamics" were a factor.
