As fresh and local as it gets! At Iechyd Da, we truly believe that great things happen over great beer! From innovative ideas born on plain white bar napkins to business deals sealed with a promise and a handshake to laughter that creates lasting memories among friends, beer has the power to bring people together and induce good times. You know, because people who drink beer (especially craft beer) are automatically smarter, funnier and better looking after a pint or two!

  • New Paradigm Brewing Company

    New Paradigm Brewing Company Our adventure began at Harrison Landing about 10 years ago. The four of us; Brandon Stanley, Bob Newman, Josh Hibshman, and Scott Gruver; all met and became fast friends as regulars at Harrison Landing. As our love of craft beer started to grow, Bob decided he wanted to start brewing beer himself and the rest of us were all eager to help. It wasn't long until we were talking about the possibility of brewing beer commercially. After 7 years and 150 batches of brew our journey has come full circle. We have purchased Harrison Landing and are opening our brewpub! Starting out as a labor of love in our kitchen, New Paradigm Brewing Co. is our dream come true. We love beers, and if you do, too, you've come to the right place! Soon we will brew, in-house, several varieties of our own hand-crafted seasonal ales, porters, and stouts. All of our beers will be available on tap and in growlers. We also offer many tastes from other local breweries from around town and across the country. Along with our great beers we offer a full complement of liquor and wine if beer is not your taste. Looking for big-name, nationally and internationally marketed commercial beers? You're in the wrong pub. We don't have any, but the grocery store is just down the street. We have live music on most Thursdays and Fridays and a DJ dance party on Saturdays. Come on down to the former Harrison Landing and have a brew with us!
