In 2016, Northway Brewing Company bought an old movie theatre and turned it into a brewery. Launched in 2018, Northway was created to celebrate the people and the landscapes that inhabit the Adirondacks. Located right on the edge of Adirondack Park in Queensbury, NY, Northway’s facility features a 50-barrel brew system, 3.5-barrel pilot system, a bottling and canning line, and a 3,000 square-foot taproom.

Northway offers a number of core brands brewed to encapsulate the essence of a relaxing day in the Adirondacks. Of these core brands, Sunrise Session IPA is a favorite! Sunrise is an unfiltered session IPA dry hopped with Mosaic and Mandarina Bavaria hops, creating the perfect combination of hazy and juicy. Perfect Day Pilsner is another tasty brew that has met rave reviews; a classic, German-styled Pilsner, Perfect Day brings Bavarian malts, Saphir, and Tettnang Hops into a beautiful blend. A satisfyingly crisp and refreshingly clean brew that will prove to be the perfect beverage to complement your perfect day.

blog_post_Paradox Our February home.grown. Brewer of the Month: Paradox Brewery! We love all things local, and one of our favorite sectors of local food is local beer. There are so many different brews, flavors, and styles, and so many stories to tell! That’s why we’re embarking on a new home.grown. adventure: to bring you fresh craft beer stories each month from our Northeast region; the best region in the United States if you ask us! Up next: Paradox Brewery! This February, or should we say “Febrewary,” we’re highlighting Paradox Brewery. Located on Route 9 in Schroon Lake, Paradox is the home of Pure Adirondack Craft Beer. The brewery was founded in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains and they pride themselves on creating pure, authentic brews with all the tastes and feelings of the area.  If you ask the team over at Paradox, they’ll tell you their foundation is the water they use; it can only be found 600 feet below the Adirondack Park. Water so pure it needs no filtering or treatment before being brewed! ParadoxBeer The beginnings of Paradox date back 30 years to when President and Founder Paul Mrocka fell in love with brewing while stationed in Germany as an Army Pilot. Mrocka began brewing for family and friends around Paradox Lake, and those lucky enough to know where to go on the lake could go share a beer with him. Mrocka became fairly well-known for his beer and in 2013 eventually received enough encouragement to open the brewery in Schroon Lake. When following the Paradox Brewery Beer Trail you will find a wide variety of unique, and tasty Adirondack Beers. Check out their core beer selection including Paradox Pilsner, a crisp and highly-drinkable cross between a Czech and German style lager. Also, definitely don’t forget their Off Trail Series, where Paradox enjoys trying new ingredients and different ideas. Off Trail brews include American Wheat, a beer full of wheat, with esters from their house yeast blend, white wine, and a hint of lemon character. American Wheat brings lots of hop flavors and aromatics. Paradox also offers a menu full of seasonal brews and bottle releases. Interested in trying some Paradox Brewery brews?

Ommegang began creating these Belgian brews back in 1997, in a building that was built to replicate a Belgian farmhouse.

These days, the brewery distributes its beer to 46 states, including Alaska and Hawaii, plus the District of Columbia. They also export to Canada, Mexico, the US Virgin Islands, and recently France! Ommegang_08_16_18_studio shoot-7-EditOmmegang provides a unique variety of thirst-quenching ales, including their Game of Thrones series of beers, paying homage to the Emmy Award-Winning Show.

Next up to the plate: Stony Creek Brewery! The pride of Branford, CT, Stony Creek Brewery was rebranded by co-founder Ed Stony Joe Event GuestsCrowley in 2015. Prior to the rebranding, Stony Creek was a small-scale contract-produced craft brand, mainly known for their IPAs named after Connecticut’s two area codes, 203 and 860. Stony Creek became much bigger after their rebrand, which launched in February 2015, and they opened up their first brewery right along the Branford River. The brewery’s 30,000 square foot size makes it the second largest brewing facility and taproom in the state of Connecticut. One of its unique features is a 2,500 square foot tasting room with 23-ounce glass mugs hanging on the wall behind the bar as part of the brewery’s Mug Club. The “Mug Club” is a way of giving back to devoted customers by giving them “their own little piece of the creek,” according to Ed Crowley Jr! Stony Tap PicWe’re proud to team up with the great people over at Stony Creek and we look forward to showcasing their crafty creations, today and in the future.
