A Paradox St. Patrick's Day at The Goose

IMG_0614.jpg

Among all the St. Paddy's day celebrations, we decided to stop by The Wild Goose Meeting House's cask tapping of Paradox Beer Company's The Cherished. As a part of the Low Hanging Fruit series, this beer tastes very reminiscent to a kriek in our opinion, with pronounced cherry and burgundy wine notes and an overall port-like character to the finish. Based on a German style, Paradox used German malts and added cooked-down cherries then aged it in wine barrels. As with all beers that undergo their proprietary Paradox Fermentation, this one will gain a level of tartness that will make this a completely different beer in the months to come.Here's some pictures from the event, but look for this in stores near the end of the month.IMG_0604As people waited for the tapping, they sampled many of the great beers The Wild Goose has on tap.IMG_0612The first twelve lucky fans got to take home a nice Paradox Beer Company belgian glass!IMG_0614Thanks to Russ, Yemi and everyone at Paradox Beer Company for hosting a great event!
