A little more than 18 months after opening their doors and serving up some of the finest craft beer to be tasted – Paradox Brewery hit a home run in the first beer contest it entered. Paradox took 2nd Place in the Spice Fruit Lager at the 18th Annual Great International Beer & Cider Competition in Rhode Island last weekend!
Brewery Founder Paul Mrocka was over the moon and justifiably proud with the brewery’s win. The winning beer was a result of the collaboration of Paul and PDX’s new, young Brew MNaster Devon Hamilton.
The win was for their Paradox Seasonal, which fans of Paradox came to know and love this fall as their Pumpkin Lager.
"Our first competition and we get a silver. I'm happy but Devon is really happy," Paul told us.
New at the brewery right now there is their Porter and coming out soon will be their famous Winter Lager.
"By the time January comes around, we'll probably bring out our dark based stout and maybe our Paradox Triple or something similar to that and whatever the one-off thing that Devon decides to brew".
From all of us here at Schroon Laker, We say: “Go For It, Devon” For a complete list of winners, click here.
