Everyone small town needs a local brewery, and for Lake Placid that is Lake Placid Pub and Brewery. Housed in a former church, this pub has lots of great atmosphere to go along with its fantastic microbrews.
This is a great family friendly restaurant/brewery, with a very friendly atmosphere. The third flood even has a play room for kids!
There is no guile in this menu. Traditional pub grub is what you get, with a few unique creations thrown in. However, everything is fresh, seasonal, and delicious! It also strongly features local ingredients and products from all over New York State. For appetizers you’ll find bar food stables like nachos, buffalo wings, and pretzels, along with some more original bites like fried pickles and buffalo shrimp, and a New York cheese platter.
They have a great selection of flat bread pizzas, which range from traditional to adventurous. Try andouille sausage, pesto chicken, or the pear and maple, which features pear slices, New York Maple Cheddar Cheese, and dried cherries, and is topped with organic mixed greens, walnuts, and a maple vinaigrette. Try one of their great burgers or braised ribs with house made bbq sauce, made with local maple syrup and the Ubu Ale.
While the food is delicious, the main feature is their beer! Their flagship beer is the Ubu Ale,an English Strong Ale, and it’s used in several of their foods. With a minimum of 8 beers on tap, a sampler is highly recommended! The brewery has a score of 89 on Beer Advocate, making it well worth a visit.
If you’re at all interested in trying local beers, and great food created with local produce, Lake Placid Pub and Brewery is the perfect place to go! With a relaxed, charming atmosphere, tasty pub grub, and delicious beer, you can’t go wrong.
