Inspired by The Playground of the World, Coney Island Lager will please any palate and pair perfectly with whatever you’re taste buds desire. A boardwalk hot dog, perhaps?

Coney Island Freaktoberfest, Completely Changed

Shmaltz Brewing Co. sold off the Coney Island line to Alchemy, a subsidiary of Samuel Adams last year. Distribution has been pulled back to basically New York, and the beer recipes, overhauled.

Coney Island Freaktoberfest used to be a “blood” red lager with a 6.66% ABV. This fall, it’s going pumpkin. Freaktoberfest 2014 will be a pumpkin ale brewed with spices and espresso beans from Cafe Grumpy in Brooklyn.

Freaktoberfest is a hauntingly complex, deep amber, pumpkin and espresso ale. Caramel aromas intermingle with hints of allspice and cinnamon. A roasted, rich body is highlighted by Brooklyn’s own Cafe Grumpy’s specially selected espresso beans, and is finished with sweet pumpkin. 

Coney Island Freaktoberfest will be available in 12oz bottles, and presumably draft. Coney Island just released a new seasonal, Tunnel of Love Watermelon Wheat.

Style: Pumpkin Ale (w/ Espresso)
Availability: 12oz Bottles
Arrival: Fall, 2014

Coney Island Boasts New Watermelon Wheat Offering

Shmaltz Brewing Company separated and sold off the Coney Island brand in 2013. The brand was reformulated into a brewing company, by Alchemy and Science, a Boston Beer division. Distribution scaled back to the state of New York and the nearby area. In addition, the artwork has been overhauled, and new beers promised.

One of the first new offerings under the new Coney Island Brewing Co brand name will be Tunnel of Love Watermelon Wheat. The distribution will not be as wide as 21st Amendment’s Watermelon Wheat. That summer offering is still king.

Like a gentle summer breeze, the scent of watermelon cools your senses before a sweet first sip opens to a rich, full-bodied beer. A crisp, slightly fruity finish rounds out this lovely ride.

Look for this summer seasonal in 12oz bottles.

Style: Wheat Beer (w/ Watermelon)
Availability: 12oz Bottles
Arrival: TBA
