About Coney Island Brewery
With spinning thrills, games of skill, treats on the boardwalk, the Atlantic Ocean and horizon beyond, Coney Island is the end of the Earth. This is America’s playground, the place where dreamers come to be a part of a community built on amusement. At Coney Island, we brew beer that embodies this spirit to share with friends near and far.
Coney Island Brewery was originally founded in 2007. Our first location – inside Coney Island USA’s Freakatorium – was known at the time as the “smallest brewery in the world.” When Hurricane Sandy hit in 2012, the brewery was destroyed, and a new brewery was built at 1904 Surf Avenue in 2015, just steps away from its original location. While the taproom closed in November 2023, we continue to offer Coney Island beers for your enjoyment at bars, restaurants and stores throughout New York.
The Parachute Jump
Standing 250 feet tall and weighing 170 tons, the “Eiffel Tower of Brooklyn” has been a Coney Island landmark for the better part of a century. This system of steel arms, lift ropes, guide cables and parachutes was originally designed for the 1939 New York World’s Fair, then relocated to the Coney Island boardwalk in 1941. Although it ceased operation in the mid 1960s, the Parachute Jump has remained an iconic symbol of Coney Island to this day, and is a primary feature of the Coney Island Brewery logo.
