Schroon Lake’s Paradox Brewery, which has called our hamlet home since 2012, will be uprooting and moving to North Hudson to become one of the jewels in the crown of a multi-million repurposing of the Old Frontier Property.
Paradox Brewery will invest $2.8 million to expand its operations at the site, in part thanks to a $200,000 incentive grant from the Empire State Development Corporation, according to a press release.
It’s an initiative to re-invent the former Frontier Town theme park, part of a New York state proposal to Create a Master Plan for a “Gateway to the Adirondacks at Northway Exit 29 in North Hudson”.
Brewery Founder Paul Mrocka was not immediately available for comment.
Built in the Adirondacks in 1952 and finally shuttered in 1998, the Frontier Town site has previously been the subject of lawsuits and litigation.
Cuomo – long a fan of the North Country, helping to promote our area as a tourism destination, has wanted to promote and increase the economic vitality of the towns connected to this underutilized and dilapidated North Hudson location.
We will have more on this story later.
