Senator Chuck Schumer and Congressman Bill Owens Visit the LPP&B

    

We were honored to host NY Senator Chuck Schumer and Congressman Bill Owens on Friday September 6th, including a tour and a press conference annoucing the Small BREW Act.  There were several articles and stories about the visit and I have included several links here. It was a great day at the LPP&B. Thank you to both men for their visit.

Come visit The Hop Loft (our new third floor)! The wait is over.

After months of anticipation, we are proud to invite you to experience the new, third floor of the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, we are calling it The Hop Loft.  A new bar and dining area await you at the top of the tower. This new space has dramatically reduced our waitlist times and provides a perfect place to enjoy one of our delicious brews and some great food, plus a dynamite view.  Currently The Hop Loft will be open Thursday night through Sunday night, but will be open daily from February 14th through the 24th for President's Day/Week.  Look for us four days a week after that, with daily operations to resume mid-June. And don't forget that this space is perfect for your private party, graduation party, or rehearsal dinner. Please contact events@ubuale.com to plan your event at The Hop Loft.  See you all at The Pub!

Travel Channel Visits the Pub

Yesterday we were one of the three featured businesses on a new Travel Channel Show named ' Park Secrets". Our episode was titled Winter Wonderland and we are so excited and honored to play such a big part of the half hour.  They showed some great pictures of the Pub, interviews with our patrons, and closeups of the beer. They also focused on our Maple Melt sandwich (so I guess we will have to order more chicken). As soon as I can find a link to the show online I will post it here and on Facebook but set your DVR's for the next showing of Park Secrets:Winter Wonderland.

The new tanks are in the building.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to us (and to you too). Our new tanks were placed into the building on 12/31/12. We were happy to see two of our old unitanks back in the Pub as well as welcome three new seven-barrel conditioning tanks and three new seven-barrel fermentation tanks. That means we can brew up to 56 barrels a week at the Pub. More pictures can be found on our facebook page here.

They should be online once the walls and ceiling are completed later this week so we should be able to fill them up mid-January. Make sure to come down to the brewery for a look and a taste.

Cheers.

Chris

Construction Moving Along

We are making huge strides in the renovation project at the Pub.  The foundation for the back area is poured, and the floor gets poured tomorrow. Drains are in place for the new fermentation room as well as the new cold room. We are increasing the capacity of the brewery by 60%. The thrid floor renovations are moving along too with sheetrocking and painting happening this week, then the new bar equipment, tables and chairs, etc. soon follow.  We hope to have the whole project completed in late November, early December. Keep checking here and on our Facebook page for more details and pictures.

Proud Sponsor of Ragnar Adirondacks 2012

We are so excited to be part of this cool event.  Look for our Team Ubu runners in this race from Saratoga to Lake Placid. And then join us for beers and fun under the 40x60' tent at the finish line (Horse Show Grounds) as we are the Official Beer of Ragnar Adirondacks!!

Ragnar is the overnight running relay race that makes testing your limits a team sport. A team is made up of 6-12 individuals; each individual runs 3 legs. The legs of the race vary in difficulty and distance, from 3-8 miles, allowing elite and novice runners to run together. Over 2 days and 1 night, teams run across 200 miles of the country’s most scenic terrain. Pair that with crazy costumes, inside jokes, a great finish line party and unforgettable stories. Some call it a slumber party without sleep, pillows or deodorant. We call it Ragnar.

Renovations at The Pub

First and foremost - The Pub will be OPEN throughout our renovations.  Thanks for your patience during construction.  We are excited to be renovating our building and expanding. Throughout the summer, we will be:

  • expanding the brewery space and installing six new tanks. This will allow us brew more beer. It also allows us to brew more lagers and other fun beers which take longer to condition.
  • installing a new, larger kitchen on the second floor.
  • renovating the third floor (yes, the third floor) into public space with a new bar and about 55 seats for dining and drinking. This space will also be available for rent to groups, teams, rehearsal dinners, and other events.
  • extending the tower to reach the third floor. Although the stained glass will be out of the tower while major construction is happening, they will return to their place once the tower is insulated and secured.
  • adjusting the front entrance so there will be a covered, sloped walkway towards the front door. This will eliminate the step down to get into the Pub.
  • installing an elevator to reach all three floors, making the entire building handicap accessible.
  • installing a new roof, new siding, and a sprinkler system for the whole place.

We are so excited and are looking forward to the project being done later this summer. 

Keep up with updates on our Facebook page.

KB’s Wee Heavy wins the Gold.

A great weekend at Tap NY culminated with KB's Wee Heavy bringing home the Gold Medal as the Best Beer in the Hudson Valley.  "It's always an honor to win an award at Tap NY" said LPP&B owner Chris Ericson. "This year there were over 200 beers from 50 great New York State breweries, so to have our beer singled out is a real feather in our cap. Kevin Litchfield did a great job on the brew but I think KB was up there helping us on this win too." 

KB's Wee heavy is a fairly strong Scottish Ale fermented with a Scotch Ale Yeast. Malt flavors dominate, with a distinct malt sweetness, and a decidedly smoky character. All Scottish ales are low in bitterness, and very low in hop flavors and aromas, and this beer is no exception. In accordance with traditional Scottish brewing procedures, we ran off a small portion of wort and caramelized it by boiling it in the kettle for 45 minutes before running off the rest of the wort. From there, we boiled it for a longer period of time, and added aged hops to the kettle, as to impart very little hop flavor and aroma to the finished product. Overall, a malty dark amber beer, with a unique Scottish ale flavor. This beer is brewed in memory of Kevin Broderick, who appreciated the finer things in life like good friends and great beer.
