Tag Archives: Coney Island Brewing Company

I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…

First they did it with sodas, like Root Beer and Cream Soda. Now Coney Island Brewing Company has turned to famous cocktails to inspire their beers. The Hot Toddy is an unlikely beer style, but it works wonders. The strong ale (12.5% ABV) is fermented with honey, cinnamon, and lemons. It is then aged on whiskey barrel staves before being served hot or cold. Yes, it’s beer, but you’d be forgiven if you thought you were actually drinking a cocktail. .Price Varies.

My search for the best beer in New York continues….

CONEY ISLAND BREWING COMPANY, 1904 Surf Avenue (at West 17th Street), Coney Island, BrooklynMost people only go out to visit Coney Island in the summer. Very few actually see it when only the residents are around in the dead of winter. It’s a very different place. I kind of like it because it’s quiet and nostalgic as the shops and rides await the tourist season a few months away.

I’ve been out to Coney Island a few times in the freezing cold – most recently to visit the newest iteration of Coney Island Brewing Company. (more…)

My search for the best beer in New York continues….

This brewery is currently closed, but will re-open with a new concept soon.

Call me a freak (you wouldn’t be the first), but I’m attracted to really strange and unusual things. Especially when it comes to food. The odder the combinations, the better. How many times have we had pasta with garlic, white wine, and olive oil? I want you to throw in some really unexpected ingredients to shock, dazzle, and awe. Of course, the bizarre combinations don’t always work (the turkey ice cream I made one Thanksgiving was just plain wrong), but I’m excited to try them and find out.

And you don’t get any more strange, bizarre, and, well freakish than the Coney Island Side Show. I’ve been to Coney Island a handful of times and was more interested in the hot dogs and the overpriced rides than the freak show. So I’ve never actually been inside the museum. But recently I did venture to the corner of Surf Avenue and 12th Street to a strange site to behold indeed. Attached to where the sideshow performers work is the “World’s Smallest Brewery” – Coney Island Brewing Company.
