Just returned from a long weekend in Lake Placid...stayed at the Hampton Inn next door (btw...best Hampton Inn Iíve ever seen). The really cool thing is the two places are adjacent...drink at the LPPB and walk a very short walk home. This place really has great atmosphere...across from Mirror Lake...especially the downstairs pub. The food is decent...the beer is very good...I wouldnít say great...but very good.The IPA was nice along with Rauch the Cas-Bock...but the real star is the Ubu..a great English strong ale. The vibe is pretty cool downstairs...especially when itís snowing hard outside which it was the night I visited. The staff was great too. Although I was never a huge fan of their bottled beer...a visit here is definitely a must when in the area.

Wife and I each ordered burgers. And I got a sampler of beers. Mine was good. Hers was supposed to be medium well and came out half rare. Waiter was very attentive and handled it professionally. UBU ale is very good and worthy of honors received. IPA is also solid. Ambiance is great. Three levels of pub and even a kids room for family diners.

1st place we had a meal when stopping in Lake Placid. Off the main st. 3 floors in the building to choose from. The Irish bar, the sports bar or the fancy resturant the is kid friendly. We ate in the sports bar. A decent steak sandwich and a turkey club. The sampler tray of 6 beers was $8. Iíll stop back in next time in town.

The brewery has been in operation since the mid 90ís and is now a very mature pub......in slow times it is a great place, but in heavy traffic weekends (we were there Ironman weekend) it is hectic, noisy and often has long waits......now itís completely understandable for the waits however we waited almost 20 minutes to have our plates cleared and to receive the check....if youíre trying to turn over tables and folks are helping you why not help them move on? Not putting this on the waitress as she was given tables on both sides where she couldnít see us......just a bit more organization and a few more beers in the lineup and it would be awesome even on a busy weekend.

2013-04-30. Had lunch at Lake Placid Brewery where neither the food nor the beer particularly impressed, but were okay. The food was decent, we had a pizza and a chicken sandwich. A bit of an upscale spin on pub grub but wasnít anything special. Nice-ish view from the patio of the lake. Lots of sports memorabilia and banners on the wall. Super quiet when we were there. The Ubu Ale is my favorite of their beers. Definitely worth a stop while you are in town but not necessarily a destination unto itself.

We had their Ubu ale and IPA on tap at the downstairs bar. Compared to their bottled stuff the Tap beers where so much better (fresher with more flavour and aromas).

Visited for the first time September 19, 2012. Twice, before and after supper. Nice looking place with a view of Mirror Lake, off the Main Street, so there should be less tourist, well at less in the lower bar. I drank my two beers downstairs in what they call P.J. OíNeillís, the name of the pub before LPPB moved in. A simple, nonchalant pub that made me feel comfortable. The barmaid was quite knowledgeable, to the point of telling us that the ESB was too malty, she was right. Like I said, I had two of their beer, the IPA and UBU Ale, quite nice. A must come back!

A little hard to find, but worth a stop. Good sampler offering, and the food looked great but we had just eaten. Nice wood cabin ambiance, which was very fitting for our winter visit. Manager was off putting, insisted that the tap handle we own for one of their products must have been "stolen" because we bought it on Ebay... I guess their Ubu taps are all handcarved by a local guy? Anyway, made us feel like jerks when all we had inquired about was a sticker for the tap handle. Whatever. Still a good place to grab a sampler.

The wife cruised thru on a business trip to grab me some brews. Her review:
Nice clean bar, friendly staff helped me grab a mixed 6 pack and get back on the road quickly. The place smelled great I wish I would have had time for lunch. Would definitely make a point to try if in the area again.

Lunch on a Friday.
Quiet at the time. Waiter did not seem to know how to recommend beers...
More selection would be nice.
Other than that, the beers are well made and the food was excellent.
would definitely return.
try the IPA!
