Paradox Beer Company
Last Updated June 01, 2016
Why We Love It: This green brewery (a Clean Energy business and EPA Green Power Partner) is dedicated to producing only barrel-aged, bottleconditioned beers, and they do it right. High-altitude (9,000 feet) terroir also allows Paradox to use house-grown Brettanomyces in its fermentation; the results are distinctive, fruit-centric offerings like End of the Beginning Vol. II, a sour blonde ale with a hint of funk offset by notes of oak and honey. Other delights include an evocative Sour Elderberry Ale and Café Verdad, a smooth, complex Mexican coffee and cinnamon brown ale.
