Beer Finder

Rollercoasters, beaches and hot dogs. That’s what most people think when they hear Coney Island… and they’re not wrong. But there’s also so much more to do, see and eat! If you’ve been to our brewery, you’ve probably enjoyed a beer with Theresa and Tommy from our crew (under the giant blue arrows). They’re Coney Island natives and know the neighborhood inside and out. So if you’re looking to experience Coney Island beyond the rides, check out their top 10 spots below!


1. Coney Shack2909 W. 8th Street

Located at 2909 W. 8th, Coney Shack serves up Southeast Asian-inspired tacos and hot dogs. Coney Shack won the 2015 Vendy for Rookie of the Year Food Truck in NYC! Brewery favorites include the Holy Phuc Hot Dog and, well, really any of their amazing tacos.

2. Gargiulo’s Restaurant
2911 West 15th Street

Gargiulo’s presence on Coney Island dates back to 1907 when they first opened their doors. It’s stood the test of time and continues to be a landmark in the neighborhood. It’s a favorite lunch spot for our crew and the place to be if you’re looking for some amazing Neapolitan cuisine. During the summer you can also enjoy brick oven pizza in there pizza garden or one of our specialty beers on tap straight from the brewery!

3. Coney Island (Norton’s Point) Light
4750 Beach 47th Street 2

Coney Island is known for the bright lights of the boardwalk, but to the far west end of Coney Island stands a less glamorous but equally historic light. The Coney Island Light, or Norton’s Point, has been standing tall on the east side of the New York Harbor since 1890. Up until 2003, it was maintained by Frank Schubert, the last civilian lighthouse keeper in the US. 

To get there, take Surf Avenue West to the gated community of Seagate and ask permission at the gate to see the Coney Island Lighthouse. The lighthouse is located between B47 and B48th Streets off Surf Avenue.

4. Coney Island Handball Courts
498 Surf Avenue

Often referred to as the “mecca” of handball, the Coney Island Courts are home to some of the world’s best handball players. Located at 498 Surf Ave, you can catch an intense game on any given summer afternoon.

5. Coney Island USA & Museum
1208 Surf Avenue

Visit America’s last-running Freak Show where you can see fire breathers, sword swallowers, snake charmers and a wide array of freaks.  The museum allows you to step back in time and see Coney Island in all its stages.  Hit up the Freak Bar while you’re there and enjoy a cold beer from yours truly!

6. The Coney Island History Project
3059 West 12th Street

The history of Coney Island is a fascinating tale and definitely something to explore at the Coney Island History Project. The non-profit was founded in 2004 and works to increase appreciation for the boardwalk’s wild past as well as today’s neighborhood. You can check out the Coney Island History Project on West 12th right near the Wonder Wheel!


7. Williams Candy
1318 Surf Avenue

These guys have been making their world famous candy treats for over 75 years. It’s safe to say that they know a thing or two about making caramel apples, cotton candy, fudge and other old-school bites. They’re located right on the main strip next to Nathan’s Hot Dogs, so they can’t (and shouldn’t) be missed!

8. Totonno’s Pizzeria Napolitano
1524 Neptune Avenue

If you’re looking for some of the best pizza in NYC (and therefore the world since NYC has the best pizza!), then look no further than Coney Island’s very own Totonno’s. Yes, we’re a bit biased, but even Zagat, the New York Times and the James Beard Foundation have given their pizza the love it deserves!

9. New York Aquarium
602 Surf Avenue

Break up the beach day with a visit to the New York Aquarium! It’s steps from the boardwalk and has so many great things to do, see and explore. From walrus feedings to a 4-D theater, the aquarium is a Coney Island must-do. Did we mention the always-adorable sea otters?

10.  Coney Island Brewery
1904 Surf Avenue

Because beer.
