Andrews Distributing to Sell Coney Island’s Hard Root Beer


Dallas, TX – Andrews Distributing is excited to announce a new partnership with Coney Island Brewing Company. Andrews is scheduled to begin distributing Coney Island’s Hard Root Beer in Dallas-Fort Worth and Corpus Christi in August.

Coney Island Brewing was founded in 2007 by Jeremy Cowen of Shmaltz Brewing Company. Cowen created award-winning brews with bold artwork featuring the spirit and iconic imagery of Coney Island in New York. In 2013, the brewery began a new journey and joined the Alchemy & Science family. Coney Island Brewing continues to create world-class products that capture the fun and happiness of Coney Island.

Coney Island Hard Root Beer is a new twist on an old favorite. The 5.8% alcohol by volume beverage has hints of vanilla, licorice and birch, designed to take your mind and taste buds to the boardwalk.

Chris Adams, brewery operations manager for Coney Island, said the team is looking forward to sharing Coney Island with the Texas audience.

“We would be remiss not to explore any opportunity to invite people to discover our Coney Island family,” Adams said. “We are proud of these world-class beers, and we’re excited to find a new audience with our Hard Root Beer!”

Blythe Lee, Andrews brand manager for Coney Island, said Coney Island is a unique and enjoyable brand.

“The Coney Island team has combined great, entertaining artwork with an even better product that we look forward to sharing in Texas,” Lee said. “We are eager to begin distribution of their Hard Root Beer in DFW and Corpus Christi as it continues to grow in popularity.”

The Hard Root Beer will first be available in 6-pack bottles and a limited availability of draft (1/2 bbls), with plans to also add 12-pack cans.
