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.
