OUR STORY

FOLLOW THE TRAIL TO
PARADOX BREWERY

Founded in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains where the air is crisp, the water is pure and people take the time to do things the right way. Whether that’s building the perfect campfire, taking in high-peaks views, or crafting beer that captures what it means to be in the ADKs. There are no shortcuts when brewing Pure Adirondack Beer.

The foundation of our beer is the water we use which can only be found in the granite 600 ft. below the Adirondack Park. Water that is so pure, it needs no filtering or treatment before we brew it with the best malts and hops we can find. We combine these ingredients with our passion for great beer and the result is Pure Adirondack Beer.

We hope you enjoy drinking it (responsibly) as much as we enjoy crafting it.

PAIRS WELL WITH ALL MOUNTAIN ACTIVITIES.

our story

Paradox Brewery traces its roots 30 years back to when our President and Founder Paul Mrocka fell in love with beer and brewing in Germany while stationed there as an Army Pilot.

After a few decades of brewing for friends and family Paul’s beer became fairly well known in and around Paradox Lake.  Those lucky enough to know where on the lake to go, could boat over and grab a beer with Paul, who was brewing 200 gallons a year to keep up with the demand for his tasty (and free) lake beer.

In 2013 with some encouragement and investment from friends and family, Paradox Brewery was founded in Schroon Lake, NY. Shortly after getting production up and running, Paul recruited Head Brewer Devon Hamilton.

Devon and QA/QC Manager James DeWaard (JD) have embraced the Pure Adirondack Beer mission and continues to enhance the core beers and bring new ideas to the table with our Wild Beers, Barrel Aged and Bottle Conditioned Series.
