Mother Earth, Coronado collab on IPA

Two stalwart San Diego County breweries team up to create the latest entry in The Four Seasons of Mother Earth beer series

Mother Earth Brew Co. is teaming up with San Diego’s Coronado Brewing to release a West Coast IPA as part of its premier program, The Four Seasons of Mother Earth.

In keeping with the tradition of a collaboration to break up the series of quarterly big stouts, Mother Earth kept its 2024 partnership in SoCal, joining with their craft cohorts at Coronado Brewing. The brew celebrates a long-standing relationship between the San Diego breweries.

“Going all the way back to 2009, we sat with [Coronado Brewing co-founder] Rick Chapman at the original Coronado Island location to pick his brain and gain some insight into the industry, which was, of course, much different then,” says Mother Earth President Dan Love. “Since then, both our breweries have been on a similar trajectory and have a lot in common, so it only made sense to work together on this collab. We don’t work with just anyone – particularly when it comes to the Four Seasons program. Working with Coronado is definitely an honor and a sign of mutual respect on both sides.”

The brewers describe the beer as an “old-school meets new-age” West Coast IPA. The beer features some newer hops like Elani and Talus, which bring a heavy lemon-and-lime note, along with delicious ruby red grapefruit, respectively. Simcoe focuses on driving home citrus qualities as well as some tropical fruit thanks to a new crop that veers away from the piney notes it was known for in the past. The result is a clean, dry, 7.3% alcohol-by-volume fruit-bomb that is sure to impress modern and classic hop-heads alike.

Four Seasons Summer ‘24 will be available at retailers the week of June 24 on draft and in 16-ounce cans
or via early release at Mother Earth’s three taprooms on Saturday, June 22. Visit Mother Earth’s website and social feeds for details.
