Lake Placid Pub and Brewery

You can always tell when a brewpub is owned by a brewer - the brewery is centerstage, the beer is listed everywhere, and, most importantly, the beer is top-quality.  The Lake Placid Pub & Brewery has been brewing award-winning beers since 1996.  Utillizing a seven barrel brewery, we brew over 1500 barrels each year, placing our production in the top 7% of brewpubs nationwide - not bad for a town of 2800 residents.  We always have six house beers on tap.

NEW: Brewery tours are offered on Saturdays at 4:30pm. Please gather at the third floor bar to start the tour. Tours also given upon request. 

Our current line-up is found below:

Blacklisted IPA ***


6.2% ABV
Falling under the style category of an American Black Ale, this IPA is brewed with dehusked black malt, to give it a rich black color and mild roast character, without imparting any of the bitter roast flavors, that would be more characteristic of a stout. It is then hopped very aggressively with American flavor/aroma hops to bring about an assertive hop bitterness and a strong, pungent hop flavor. A blend of West Coast American hops (Amarillo, Simcoe, and Citra) create the hop profile of this newer style of beer, more commonly referred to as a Black IPA.


4.8% ABV
This traditional German-style Alt is amber in color, smooth, and soft. 2014 World Beer Cup entry.

Nippletop Milk Stout

4.7% ABV
Named after a distinctively shaped Adirondack High Peak, this unique dry stout is brewed with an addition of oatmeal and lactose sugar, rounding the corners of the roasted malt flavors and leaving a slightly sweet finish.

highlander irish ale

4.2% ABV
A light, irish-style ale, lighter in alcohol, with a slightly smoky, malty flavor.

ubu ale

7.0% ABV   38 IBU   43 SRM
Our famous English-style Strong Ale is deep garnet red in color, and features dark fruit and roasted malt flavors, with a slightly bitter finish.

lake placid I.P.A.

6.8% ABV   67 IBU   21 SRM
A tribute to the original West Coast-style IPA’s, our IPA is aggressively hopped for a citrus and piney flavor and aroma, but maintains a subtle, bready malt backbone.

Golden Rye Ale

4.0% ABV
A light golden ale with a generous contribution of rye malt.  Very light in bitterness, thirst quenching, and brewed to kick off the summer season.

46’er pale ale

6.0% ABV   43 IBU    13 SRM
A great English-style Pale Ale – copper in color, hoppy yet very smooth.


QUALITY.  We are proud to offer growlers (and 6-packs, 12-packs, and cases) of our beers. We have a policy of never directly refilling any growlers, including our own. Instead we have an exchange where we take a dirty/empty Lake Placid Pub & Brewery growler and give you a new one - one which has been washed, sterilized, purged with CO2, and then correctly filled that day by our brewery staff. After years of seeing people come in with growlers which were not ready to be filled, we instituted this policy. We never fill growlers at the bar, even if you feel that yours are clean and ready to be filled.

We are not unique with this policy. From The Brewers Association: Establishments filling growlers should only fill containers that have been properly cleaned. In some cases retailers require an “exchange program” where a consumer exchanges an empty, approved growler container (to be cleaned by the retailer) for a full growler. Source:

We price the new growlers and refills within $3 of each other in an effort to not be greedy, unlike some other breweries where it is double the cost. That issue is secondary, however - the biggest reason is that we take an enormous amount of pride in our beer and have found that the only way to insure its quality when taken away from the Pub is to follow this procedure. (As a side note, it is also illegal from a TTB and NYSLA perspective to have a bottle which contains a product which is not accurately labeled on the outside, although many breweries choose to ignore this rule.) But again, for us it is about insuring the quality of the liquid once you get it home. Thanks.
