Get your lager on tonight at Bottleworks (1710 N 45th Street, 5-7 pm) when Shmaltz Brewing Company debuts its new line of Coney Island Craft Lagers. Covering every shade of gold, and with names like Albino Python white lager and Freaktoberfest, and brought to you by the makers of HE'BREW, this is beer for a good cause. Proceeds from the beer will benefit freaks and other forms of lost art and culture through the Coney Island USA non-profit, focusing on bolstering the creativity in and around the historic park's Brooklyn neighborhood. Ladies and gentlemen, young sword swallowers and tassel twirlers need your help.
The labels were designed by a local tattoo artist, and... Maybe my eyes just live in the gutter, but that being said...I really would like to know how at least one of those labels passed the mustard with the BATF. So to speak.
