All About Paradise Brewing Company
Paradise didn’t open with the intention of becoming Anderson’s first brewery, when they opened they did so to sell supplies to local homebrewers, and when the opportunity arose to start selling their beer it seemed for a while that they were doing it just to help homebrewers taste what things were supposed to taste like. The brewery still makes a name for itself as a safe space that you can go and ask whatever “stupid questions” you might have about homebrewing without being judged. They’ve got a tight group of regulars that frequent their taproom, which has been growing in physical size and scope for the last couple of years, and it’s exciting to think of where Paradise might be in the next few years down the road.
What’s Paradise Like?
Paradise Brewing still feels like your neighbor’s basement in a lot of ways. They have put a lot of time and effort into growing what they do while keeping the same feeling that made their fans fall in love with them in the first place. You’ll find 13 taps pouring an eclectic selection of different styles. They’ve got couches to keep you comfortable, and a nice sized patio out their back doors for when the weather demands outdoor drinking.
