But in today's Peter Pan complex of a society, growing up and letting go of the games and traditions of our youth never seems to happen. And so Halloween has grown up, too.
This blood red lager really hams up the Halloween element. The alcohol content has been carefully dialed in to 6.66% ABV.
Shmaltz Brewing Company's main line of beers is He'Brew, The Chosen Beers, which is a full line of irreverently named Kosher beers. The Coney Island brews are a special side project of Shmaltz owner and brewmaster Jeremy Cowan
"In 2008, we decided to kick off a sideshow inspired craft beer line to help raise money for Coney Island USA. Shmaltz now has seven Coney Island Craft Lagers including Coney Island Lager, Albino Python, Sword Swallower, Human Blockhead, Freaktoberfest, and Mermaid Pilsner. For over 125 years Coney Island has been and continues to be America's Playground. Shmaltz Brewing is ecstatic to celebrate that flavor, spirit, and future through this exceptional line of unique craft lagers."
