Introducing Porter Man

New beer alert!

Porter Man is a classic throwback to the days when Coney Island was considered a “poor man’s paradise.” Inspired by the boardwalk potato cakes that only cost a nickel, Porter Man is a flavorful, robust porter brewed with sweet potato and maple syrup.

Porter Man is on tap now at the brewery and we’ll be infusing it with cold brew during our Shamrock Shindig… one day only! You can also find it on tap at select locations throughout NYC this month for a limited time. Keep an eye on the beer finder which will show locations as it starts to hit taps.

We have wort! Post-mash with MASHED sweet potatoes.

Two of these bad boys were added directly to the boil. We missed a serious opportunity for a brewery pancake party.

Hops to balance the rich, malty, sweetness.

Three weeks later… Porter Man.


Come enjoy a pint of Porter Man this St. Patrick’s Day during our Shamrock Shindig! We’re going all out this year and will have green cuisine from the legendary Coney Shack, 8 taps flowing, including our NY Honey Stout infused in the Randall with coffee and whiskey-soaked oak staves, live face and body painting all in our tented beer garden and to support the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative.
