Taste of Coney Island in Greenpoint

A sword swallower, a human blockhead and Nathan's hot dogs.

Sounds like Coney Island, right?

Well, this Thursday, Greenpoint will have a taste of the People's Playground when beer store Brouwerij Lane hosts a sideshow-themed event to showcase the Coney Island Craft Lagers.

From 7 to 9 p.m., you can sample and purchase the lagers, which include the Human Block Head, a thick, dark lager, the Sword Swallower, similar to an American pale ale, and the Albino Python White Lager, a white lager.

All of the Coney Island Beers are brewed and bottled in Saratoga Springs, NY, and proceeds go to help Coney Island USA, a non-profit devoted to preserving the lost forms of American popular arts and culture in Coney Island.

Brouweij Lane is located at 78 Greenpoint Ave. For more information, call 718-963-4140.
