Coney Island Brewery

I visited Coney Island Brewery located at 1904 Surf Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11224 on Friday, May 4th. They are closed on Monday – Wednesday but are open are open Thursday – Sunday (12 p.m. – 10 p.m.). It was a beautiful day to be around Coney Island as there are so many things for one to do there, from enjoying a walk at the beach to riding on thriller rollercoasters to the endless amount of food courts, its the perfect place. First and foremost, I am so glad to be stepping out of my comfort zone throughout this entire course that has allowed me to visit places I never imagined I would. Who would have thought that I would be learning so much about wine someday? Not me! Aside from that note, I chose to visit Coney Island Brewery mainly because I live nearby but once I did a little research before visiting, I saw how amazingly funky and retro the the place is. I wanted to visit a place with a story and Coney Island Brewery provides exactly that. They offer free tours as well (everyday – 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.), in case anyone is interested in visiting the place around the summer. Though the place is very small / intimate, that doesn’t stop customers waiting in line to have a fresh taste of the beer they produce. The staffs are very friendly and helps you feel comfortable, especially if you’re a first time “curious” customer, like me. Once you enter, you see that there’s so much going on at every turn you take. From the earthy decor to the stainless steel tanks, your eyes are in for a treat. I learned that they have 8 house-brewed beers on tap which rotates regularly in which depending on the season, they make limited release, specialty styles of beer. What really caught my eye was their humor and how they named each beer in a crazy unique way (ex: Mermaid Pilsner, Fangtooth, SuperFreak and much more). But thats not all, even the way they brand their bottles is very unusual than how regular breweries would do, which sets them apart. I love that their not trying to fit in with their competition but rather trying to be their own competition and rise at each given opportunity. Fun fact: They are the official partner of the Mermaid Parade that takes place annually at the Coney Island Boardwalk. They also host many events at the brewery which is great for business as they are able to attract more customers. Its great that they are active on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat etc., in which they are able to network amongst millions of people worldwide. The brewery has private package deals such as a VIP Tour & Tasting / Beer Garden Table Rental / Brewery Buyout and the Beer Dinner Experience for those interested in hosting a party. Overall, I had a wonderful / fun experience visiting the Coney Island Brewery. I am so glad to have a platform such as this to share my journey with you all and as Mrs. Goodlad once said,”keep reaching out of your comfort zone.”
