One of the two fine brewpubs in Lake Placid. No surprises here, just solid food and beer. The atmosphere is pleasnat and friendly, with two bars that basically cater to the locals and tourists/weekenders. Bartender was a friendly guy and the beer and food are solid if unspectacular. I had a nice salad for lunch and went back later for the wings. I tried both the 46er IPA and the Frostbite Pale Ale, which I will write up seperately. Defintiely a must-do when you are in Lake Placid. Also, the bartender told me that Tuesday night is two for one so enjoy!

This place is fantastic. I visit lake placid quite often and I always make sure to stop in here for a pint. All their beers are good, but the Ubu and Stout are really good. The selection is good and changes quite often. They have a downstairs bar with pool and dartboards and this is where more of the locals flock to. The upstairs has a nice bar and limited space for dining, except in the summer when they open up the outdoor patio. They have growlers and great logo pint glasses for sale. They also bottle their beer and seem to be selling it far and wide. Lake Plaicd is a great down with some great beer.

Located about three blocks from the hockey arena, on the "other side" of Mirror Lake. Locals know it as "PJ's." Looks sort of like a cross between an Alpine lodge and a church from the outside. Limited parking in front, plenty of on-street parking in the area although finding a spot can be difficult during peak season.

Two levels - the downstairs is very rustic and dark, with an L shaped bar. The TV was tuned to the Weather Channel ("Look! It's 75 below on Mt. Washington!"), which I got a kick out of. The upstairs is very Adirondack Lodge - like, with wooden walls and plenty of tables around a U-shaped bar. Both areas have a warm, welcoming vibe, which was very much appreciated since the high temp that day was -3 degF. Six beers on tap, and the servers are very knowledgable about them. Bar service both upstairs and downstairs was fast and friendly. The centerpiece is the outstanding Ubu ale, a 7% garnet colored session beer of the first order. Scary drinkable. They also make an American IPA that will please hopheads, and the seasonal Frostbite Pale Ale was getting a few nods of approval from those I talked to. They only fill their growlers, and rather than fills do an exchange - hand them the empty, get another out of the ice cold case by the door, and pay your $6. Aside - $6 for a growler of Ubu Ale has got to be one of the best deals on the planet.

I did not have a chance to try the food this time, but my sister in law says that the food is generally very good. The portions looked pretty good from what I could see.
