Cheers: You can make 2 nights out of 1 trip; get wasted up, fall down the stairs, continue at the lower bar. The outdoor patio is the place to get some crisp ADK air while sucking down some cold ADK suds. Beautiful lake and mountain backrop. Chalet feel made me feel like I was in the Alps. All you can eat popcorn. The lower bar is for locals, the top for tourists. Go to the lower (but be careful), unless your life revolves @ your manicured lawn that you pay someone to do and you own 2 4-wheel drive SUV's and live on Merryweather lane. UBU ale is dangerous, along with the seasonal IPA, Frostbite. 46'er is kindof weak in comparison, but a true to style west coast APA. Far enough away from the strip. Way better than their overpriced competition.

Jeers: Again, another place that won't fill other breweries growlers. Perhaps the name Lake Placid Grolwer Emporium is more fitting? When I'm looking at the taps, don't keep telling me to look at the list, otherwise "you won't have any idea as to what is what." I heard you the first time, no need to repeat yourself. Perhaps I like to look at taps. Beware of the popcorn at the downstairs bar: stale and most likely crawling with pathogenic microbes that would love to ruin your day. The downstairs bar primarily serves as a meeting place for the locals to make fun of the out of towners. They need to find a new hobby. The UBU dog was staring at me when I was trying to take a dump. Lodge atmosphere could be bumped up a notch by having Frauleins serve the beer. 2 locals were spotted drinking Bud. One local swilling down a macro made fun of a patron who ordered the sampler. Drink a real beer, freak.

This place is about what you would expect if you've been to a few breweries in the Adirondacks. The location is just a few minutes walk from the Main Street of Lake Placid, and the building is an old house/church/ whatever that looks neater on the outside than it is on the inside. The second floor dining room that we ate in was decorated with pennants from every college sports team you could imagine, which really doesn't do much for me but whatever. The beer selection was limited to about six house brews that ranged from mediocre to actively bad. The food was ok but not much more than that. Worth a visit if you are looking to tick some local beers, but I wouldn't eat here again, and if you just want to drink a good beer you may want to look elsewhere.

It gets packed but for obvious reasons. Good eats and brews. Try going early otherwise you're going to have to wait.
