Town of Paradise Weekly Update 11-29-2023

Paradise Brew Werks Combines Beer with Rock and Roll

Jamie and Jason have had a special connection to Paradise ever since Jamie’s sister moved here in 2010. “We were just into the vibe, said Jason. We always enjoyed visiting. It was overwhelming to see the growth after the fire, and to see the spirit here. Paradise was becoming something we really cared about.”
They were ready for a new adventure beyond Southern California and decided to move to Paradise permanently. Soon thereafter, they purchased the old Big 5 lot as the site of their future brewery. Learn more about them in the blog below!

“We want to help rebuild the Paradise economy and inspire more people to do the same. Hopefully, it entices people to come up here and realize what it has to offer”, said Jamie.

“What’s happening in Paradise is going to be very, very cool, Jason added. It’s going to bring up younger families. It will get people to visit—and ultimately, it’s only going to help.”
