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 the spirit of our iconic neighborhood to share with our friends and neighbors, near and far.
Coney Island Brewery was originally founded in 2007. Its 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.
Coney Island is an iconic boardwalk neighborhood on the Atlantic Ocean, located on the southwestern edge of Brooklyn, NY. Aside from our Brewery, the area is home to the original Nathan’s Famous hot dog stand, the Coney Island Freakatorium, Coney Island USA, the wild rides of Luna Park including the well-known Cyclone roller coaster, Deno’s world-famous
Wonder Wheel and so much more. It’s a destination for local New Yorkers and tourists alike, particularly in warm summer months.
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.
