Paradox Brewery President Paul Mrocka with a handful of recent awards for his beer

The media spotlight  — and hopefully the sun — will shine brightly today on  the old Frontier Town site as the President of Paradox Brewery, Paul Mrocka, breaks ground on his new $5 million plus brew house and brew pub.

On hand for the 11 am ceremony will be Paradox cofounder Joan Mrocka, North Hudson town leaders, a scad of local politicians and many New York State officials. They will be joined as well by several investors.

The deal has been in the works for almost two years. It is part of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s vision to make the old western theme park site a gateway to the region’s High Peaks area.

Paradox Brewery will be the main anchor, which will also feature an equestrian center, horse and snow mobile trails, with cabins and tent sites for camping. New York State officials are also hoping to attract a hotel to the location, sources tell Schroon Laker.

This is a developing story which we will continue to update.
