Nathan’s Famous has partnered with Coney Island Brewing Company to create Nathan’s Famous Lager. It’s the first beer for Nathan’s Famous since its inception in 1916, according to a press release.
The lager features a bright golden color and a light to medium body with a clean snappy finish. The nose is full of bright citrus and floral aromas and the palate has a nice cracker malt profile, with a floral hop flavor. The lager is available at select New York Nathan’s Famous locations and at Coney Island Brewery in 4pk/16oz cans and on draft for a limited-time starting on Sept. 16.
“We are constantly looking to expand our menu for our customers,” Phil McCann, vice president of marketing for Nathan’s Famous, said in the press release. “We are thrilled to collaborate with another Coney Island staple, Coney Island Brewing Company, and know our customers will enjoy this beer alongside our Nathan’s Famous fan favorites. There’s no better combination than a hot dog and beer, and now you can get them both at Nathan’s Famous.”
One dollar from every pint, can or 4 pack sold will go to the Alliance for Coney Island, an organization advocating the growth of local business in the community.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Nathan’s Famous on our new ‘Heart of Coney Island’ beer series highlighting our unique community through a series of collaborations with local partners who share in our love for Coney Island and embody the spirit of our iconic neighborhood,” Chris Murray, Coney Island Brewery brand manage, said in the press release. “Hot dogs and beer are synonymous with Coney Island, so, naturally, we teamed up to brew the perfect beer to enjoy with a hot dog! At 5% ABV, it is a nod to the original 5 cent hot dogs served from Nathan’s in Coney Island. Nathan’s Famous Lager has a beautiful golden color balanced with a nice floral hop flavor with a clean finish, allowing you to refresh your palate with every sip making every bite as delicious as the first!”
