Boston Beer Company Takes Over the Coney Island Beer Brand

We just learned via Brewbound.com that Alchemy & Science, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Boston Beer Company, has acquired all rights to the Coney Island craft beer brand.

Alchemy & Science, the craft brew incubation project and wholly-owned subsidiary of Boston Beer Company, today announced that it acquired all rights to the Coney Island craft beer brand for an undisclosed amount.

Alan Newman, the president of Alchemy & Science told Brewbound.com that conversations over Coney Island, a sub-line of Shmaltz Brewing, began last year with Shmaltz founder Jeremy Cowan.
