Every time we go up to Lake Placid for vacation this is stop number one.
It's a retaraunt/brewpub.
It's usually pretty crowded here and the tables are close together but thats the price you pay for some good beer.
John Brown pale ale and the Ausable Wulff red are usually my primary beers there and I'll usually have my growler filled with a seasonal.
The food is good. I get fish most times since I gave up red meat. It's not good for you.
The best time to visit there is between lunch and dinner this way you can relax on the patio and maybe which the sites walk by. Then follow your wife to the shops. Remember, you can always take a break from shopping and go back and get another this way you don't bother her to much and stay out of her way.

This is a great place.

This brewpub, located in Lake Placid, Regularly has 6 different in-house brews on tap across a wide range of styles. The John Brown Pale Ale is good, but is actually much more like an IPA. They also make seasonal Double IPAs that are very good, and very potent.

The inside bar are is very nicely appointed with lots of Adirondack-y exposed wood and good ambiance. Good knowledgeable bar tenders.

Perhaps the best feature to compliment the great microbrew, is the outside dining area/patio, which has amazing adirondack mountain and lake views.

Overall, it's a great place to have a good, limited production beer while enjoying good food, and soaking in the views. Highly recommend making the trip.

glad I finally got to check this place out, they have been happening since 1996 right on the main drag in lake placid. ski lodge looking interior, rustic wood, fireplace, low ceilings and dim lighting. a small wood featured bar is there in back, with maybe 8 beers on. all of there beers were solid, but this is your relatively generic lineup, a pale ale, a stout, a red beer, and a handful of seasonals along with the obligatory light beer for the weenies. john brown pale, the oatmeal stout, and the esb were all exceptional. the best part was the bartender, whose name eludes me now. he was overly generous with the samples, left the bar to show us the brewhouse, fielded questions, and was a genuinely nice human being. he also gave me a free growler as I left after I told him about my beer blogging and writing. this was a place I would have been happy to sit all night and relax. prices were a little steep, 6 bucks a pint, but it is a finer food establishment, and its priced accordingly. we didn't eat, but the food going out looked well crafted. this is one of the two breweries in town, and well worth a visit on your next trip to placid.

In the quaint village of Lake Placid, New York, nestled in the Adirondack Mountains, are two fine purveyors of hand crafted beer: one is Lake Placid Craft Brewing (See Review) and the other is this one.

Housed on Main Street in a cranberry clapboard building (the brewery is in the back), the Great Adirondack Steak and Seafood Company (aka Adirondack Brewing) is a small seven-barrel family-run brewpub/restaurant that doles out award-winning brews to tourists, locals and beer aficionados alike. Sneak around to the small and atmospheric bar area and stay a while.

Or … you can sit and enjoy your meal in the cozy interior that evokes mountains and skiing – Lake Placid was the home of the 1980 Winter Olympic Games, the one where the US hockey team defeated USSR on ice. (Do you believe in miracles?) The main dining room is bright and airy with a view of Main Street outside the large picture windows. Most of the walls, nooks and crannys are liberally festooned with a myriad of mountain sports bric-a-bric. Should Dudley Do-Wright need some snow shoes (to rescue Nell, perhaps?), he could do no wrong by swinging by here – after he’s downed a few beers.

The beer selection is decent and runs the gamet of most popular styles: Blonde Ale, John Brown Pale Ale, a hyper-hopped IPA named after Sean Somebody, a smoked porter, stout, red ale and a sweet Belgian dubbel round out the list. Not bad.

So, should you go to Lake Placid to ski, hike, or whatever, and crave great beer in a homey environment, then you could Do-No-Wrong.

Stopped by here on a Thursday afternoon (4PMish) for a couple beers. Beautiful day so we sat in the nice outside seating area. There are about 15 tables outside with two being occupied when we arrived. Waitress came by and started going over specials. I said we were only having some beer (it was only 4). She then proceeded to tell us that they have a policy that you have to sit at the bar unless you are ordering food. I told here we would be out of their way in less then an hour (theoretically before the crowds arrive) and she said there was nothing she could do. We had my 4 yo daughter along so we left. I asked to see the manager and after 10 minutes he came out and confirmed the policy.

I will never return to this establishment. Based on reviews of food and beer I won't be missing much. I would understand that policy maybe on a Friday night at 6 pm but a weekday at 4 with 12 open tables? Coincidently we walked by at 5:30pm and they still had only 3 out of 15 tables full.
