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:

Cascade Pale Ale


A favorite seasonal beer that we have been brewing for over 17 years.  This copper ale is brewed exclusively with Cascade hops from Washington, added at six different times during the brew.

Imperial I.P.A.

9.6% ABV
Imperial IPAs are bigger and bolder versions of a traditional IPA.  Ours is significantly stronger. It’s more bitter than our IPA with 100 IBUs, and significantly hoppier. It is hopped with a blend of Falconer's Flight, Warrior, Simcoe, and Cascade hops.  It is served in a 12 oz. snifter.


8.0%ABV   41 IBU   9 SRM
In celebration of spring, this strong lager beer is brewed primarily with German malted barley and German Hallertauer (pronounced hal-ler-tower) hops.  It is golden yellow in color and is a full bodied beer with a decisive hop presence. It is on tap every year for the month of May and is served in a snifter.

lake placid I.P.A.

6.4% ABV

Our new version of our classic English IPA. Large additions of rye malt lend a dry, spicy character to this malt forward beer. A medium bodied ale featuring the popular citrus and piney flavors of the Amarillo hop.

adk gold ale

4.5% ABV
A hoppy golden ale that is low in bitterness wth a distinctive hop flavor.  Celeia and Perle hops are showcased in this light, refreshing ale.

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.

Around The Bend Extra Pale Ale (bottle only)


ABV 5.4% IBU 40

Featuring 4 different malts and 4 different hops, this Extra Pale Ale is a well-rounded drinkable ale with an enjoyable lasting hop character. 

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!


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.
