Back in June we wrote about the first female 46er, Grace Hudowalski, who recently had one of the 4,000+ foot peaks renamed in her honor. A local brewery is honoring Grace a little differently. With her own beer!
Paradox Brewery in Schroon Lake has released a German Kolsch named Grace Peak Witch Water.
The name comes from Grace’s habit of drinking from mountain streams. She would call it “witch water” as it felt like a you had been put under a spell and would be hooked on the Adirondacks forever. (Who knows whether the “spell” was actually beaver fever or not).
I’m going to head up to Paradox and try out Grace’s Witch Water this weekend if there’s any left – the seasonal beer is only released in small batches!
