Took a detour off the Northway to Lake Placid to check out this place.

First .... it's a great little town, with a lot to see and do.

It's right in the village on the lake and walking distance to all the shopping.

All the beers were excellent. I was a little disappointed with the Hefeweizen though .... it was overly cloudly; almost muddy in appearance. Their other seasonal, an Amber, was quite good. I'm surprised it's a summer seasonal and not a regular offering.

The menu was nice .. I went with a burger (typical of me, and a great way to judge a kitchen). I wasn't disappointed at all.

Above I mention the Amber .... I'm mentioning it again relative to the service. The bar menu did not indicate if it was an Ale or a Lager, so I asked the cute girl bartending. I wasn't surprised when she didn't know .... and she didn't go ask someone else to find out for me.

I guess this is a gripe with me, not just here, but most places. The management finds it more important to put a pretty face behind the bar rather than a representative of the establishment. Don't get me wrong, I like a pretty face .... but train them in the products they are selling. Afterall, they are not there to just fill pint glasses and serve plates.

I wish Lake Placid wasn't so far out of the way. It makes this a bit time-consuming to get to, and I would ultimately like to return here again sometime. It may require an overnight stay as opposed to a quick detour off the northway though.

Final Note. With regards to their website, it has not been updated in quite some time. Their Plattsburgh brewery is not open to the public, and has not been for quite some time. I found this out the hard way after driving there enroute to Lake Placid.
