Tribes/Coronado Collab Launch Party

March 16, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Tribes Beer Company, one of Chicagoland’s premiere craft beer bars with a recently-opened brewery, teamed up with Coronado Brewing Company to create two collaboration brews! On January 10th, head brewer David Kerns flew out to the San Diego brewery to create a killer IPA with Coronado’s head brewer Ryan Brooks. On the same day, Coronado brewer Johnny “O” arrived in Chicago to make the same beer with Tribes assistant brewer Ben Michaels.

To celebrate, Tribes Beer Company in Mokena will host a release party on Wednesday, March 16, at 6 p.m. Both versions, the Cali brew, Tribal Wave IPA, and the Illi brew, Tribal Council IPA, will be released at this special Beach and Release Party—this is a limited release for both beers. Reps from both breweries will be present and $4 pints of Coronado and Tribes beers will be available. There will be glass, button and swag giveaways, as well as live music from West Coast surf rock band, “The Real Gone.” West Coast beachwear is strongly suggested!
