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:

‘Ecto’berfest Lager

5.8% ABV 12 IBU

A traditional German-style Oktoberfest Lager – deep amber in color, smooth, soft, and malty. 

Golden Rye Ale

4.0% ABV 

A golden ale with a generous contribution of rye malt, lightly hopped with Saaz & Hallertau hops.  Light in bitterness and very thirst quenching.

Guideboat IPA

6.3% ABV

This batch features American malt and yeast balanced with the distinctive flavors and aromas of Amarillo hops. A new addition to our core lineup of IPAs!!

Leaping Cow E.S.B.

4.7% ABV   38 IBU    22 SRM
The return of one of the Pub's early favorites! Leaping Cow graces our taps after a decade long hiatus.  This traditional English-style ESB balances classic East Kent Goldings hops with sweet, crystal malt.  Named after a backwoods fence in Essex New York which could only be jumped by some sort of 'leaping cow' - we were hungover, don't ask!

ubu ale

7.0% ABV   33 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.

46’er pale ale

6.3% ABV   43 IBU    9 SRM
A great English-style Pale Ale – copper in color, hoppy yet very smooth.

Big Slide IPA (bottle only)

    7.0% ABV

Walking through the forests around the Olympic village you experience the enormity of the Adirondack Mountains. We offer this big, slightly piney brew in tribute to both the 27th High Peak and our ski jumps, which rise high above the trees. Here's to the heights!

Black Tie Chocolate Vanilla Porter (bottle only)

  7.0% ABV

Madagascar bourbon vanilla and hand-selected, pure cocoa nibs are used to elevate this traditional porter to a new level of sophistication. These two celebrated flavors pair perfectly with the party, and the after-party. Here's to the occasion!


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. And don't forget, GROWLERS SHOULD BE KEPT REFRIGERATED AND CONSUMED AS SOON AFTER PURCHASE AS POSSIBLE.Thanks.
