Crawfish In Schroon Lake?

If there's crawfish in Schroon Lake -- not literally, but figuratively -- it means it's that time of the year: the annual Witherbee's Carriage House Bayou Bob Crawfish Boil, starting Friday, March 3 through Sunday, March 5.

Bill and Patty Christian have hundreds of pounds of crawfish flown in from Louisiana for this special event, which memorializes Louisiana native and longtime Schroon Laker Bobby Matchutas.

Bob taught Bill and Patty all of the secrets to a traditional Louisiana Crawfish Boil, including a dizzying array of secret spices and the precise timing required to achieve that authentic Cajun taste.

Paradox Brewery's Big Beer Line Up

Paradox Brewery has announced  its beer lineup for 2017. The release calendar includes the entire Off Trail Series of one-off beers for the year excluding a few yet to be announced collaboration beers.

Also featured is the complete Forever Wild Series lineup for 2017. These beers are not given specific release dates due to the unpredictable nature of brettanomyces fermentation in oak barrels.

New to the lineup are 16 oz. cans. Limited amounts of Beaver Overbite Imperial IPA and Southern Hemisphere Double IPA will be available at the brewery and at select retail locations. Cans of Beaverbite IPA and Paradox Pilsner will be available at the brewery and throughout the Paradox distribution area.
