newly redone, in the last few years at least, the whole area here is really booming. basement level is a pub style, few booths, big wooden bar, pool table, juke box, dim lighting, mix of people from everywhere but lake placid, its a cool vibe. upstairs is the restaurant and brew house, nice atmosphere there too, and the food is always good, especially the wings. five or six beers going at all times, with a seasonal, a brewhouse only beer, and the regular lineup. service at the bar is always slow because its always so busy, but ive never had any issues while eating with poor service at all. I really like their ipa, one of the beers that turned me on to craft, so its nice to get it fresh. they are also doing some experimental hop stuff, which is always welcomed. it gets a little loud and a little hot in the basement there, but its a place worth visiting, especially on Tuesday when you get two for one pints!

In the quaint village of Lake Placid, nestled high in New York’s mighty Adirondack Mountains, are two fine purveyors of craft brew; one is the Adirondack Brewing Company (see my review for the Great Adirondack Steak and Seafood Company), the other is this one.

Situated apart from the Main Street bustle of summer tourists and winter ski bums, Lake Placid Brewing is housed in an appropriately rustic two-story structure, with the brewpub being upstairs. The room is pleasant enough – though, it does evoke a fratboy-cum-sportsbar atmosphere (what with the numerous college pennants decorating the walls.) In the middle is the bar, square-shaped with limited space to plant one’s ass. There is a smattering of high tops and tables scattered arbitrarily about the place – with plenty of room for the ever rushing servers. LPCB offers conviviality to local and tourist alike.

Of course, we were here for the beer and there was a decent selection of the house brew here including several IPAs; however the primary beer was the UBU Ale, a smooth and delicate English Strong Ale that comes off more like a Scotch Ale than anything else – perhaps, it is a British Strong Ale? After several pleasant pints, my friend and I, the former having brought me here in conjunction with a business trip to nearby Saranac Lake, grabbed a growler of UBU and made our way down the mountain to home.

While not much of a skier, or a tourist addicted to quaint, but crowded, mountain villages, I can see myself returning here. After all, Lake Placid is the home of two Winter Olympic Games, the most recent being in 1980 when our hockey team defeated the USSR. Now, Lake Placid is home to UBU Ale. Do you believe in miracles?
