Did you hear? We’ve expanded! In honor of this big project coming to a close, we’ve pulled together five of our favorite features of the newly expanded space.
1. New Art Alert!
Created by local artist Danielle Mastrion, our new mural is the perfect depiction of Coney Island in all its glory, with the brewery at the heart of it all (awww!!!). You can see Danielle’s murals throughout Brooklyn, with themes spanning from environmentalism to music.
Iconic Coney artist Toni Lee Sangastiano has also graced the walls, depicting sideshow characters of all different varieties, including Bathing Barb, pictured below! Sangastiano painted her first sideshow banner in 1996, and has worked with Coney Island USA on a multitude of capacities. It only made sense for her to be a part of this project as well.
2. The fact that there are now TWO HUGE bars.
We now have two large spaces to pour a pint: including one adorning fresh Mermaid-esque tiles and sweet neon alongside the tanks. In addition, we have a secondary bar space that looks onto Surf Avenue, so you can sip and people-watch.
3. SO. MUCH. SPACE.
Remember that bb taproom you visited this summer? It’s QUADRUPLED IN SIZE. Not only that, our beer garden is gigantic now, tripled in its original size, which means, ALL THE MUSIC offerings inside and out. Like our recent hosting of Life of Agony. It also means we’re fully capable of hosting a killer party. Bachelorette? Christmas Party? We got you!
4. Finally… A KITCHEN! For FOOD!
Step right up, as we’ll be thrilling tastebuds with favorite Coney classics out of our brand new kitchen starting this winter. YUM.
5. More than one bathroom… 🙂
Picture this: it’s a balmy June day for Mermaid Parade. Tens of thousands of mer-people adorn Surf Avenue, in the heat, drinking lots of liquids to stay hydrated. Stay with me here. There is ONE bathroom at our brewery. ONE. So, yeah, we are thrilled to have six stalls available for our patrons. It’s the little things, you guys.
… but this was a big thing, and we’re so happy to share it with our community. Hope to see you in for a pint soon!
