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.
