Coney Island in Hollywood!

Let’s face it. Winter weekends are for vegging out on the couch for as long as possible. Though we’d love to see you at the brewery every night, we can’t blame you if you choose to make it a weekend in with a cold beer and a good movie. So we’re here to help!

This winter, we teamed up with FandangoNOW to give away an HDTV, a retro bean bag chair and some FandangoNOW movie codes. See how you can enter for a chance to win and then check our beer finder to complete the perfect Weekend with Coney.
