Lake Placid Pub & Brewery

Voted ‘The Best Brewery’ and ‘The Best Bar’ in the Adirondack Park. 

2014 Adirondack Life Readers’ Choice awards

The Lake Placid Pub & Brewery serves great beers and delicious food in a comfortable atmosphere. Since 1996, the LPP&B has been Lake Placid's pub of choice, with the freshest microbrewed ales and lagers, including the famous Ubu Ale, and traditional pub fare sure to please everyone. We proudly pour six taps of our house beers at all times, and usually have at least two of our own bottled beers as well.  In addition to year-round beers like our famous Ubu Ale and Big Slide IPA, we also feature rotating seasonal beers such as Black Tie Porter, Bean-To Coffee Stout, Brewer’s Reserve IPA, Twice Bitten Barleywine, Ectoberfest Lager, Maibock, High Peaks Hefeweizen, and Dr. Fogg's Oatmeal Stout to name just a few. We have brewed more than 80 different styles of beer over our 18 years in business. We are very proud to have been twice selected as The Best Brewery in New York State and four times as The Best Brewery in the Hudson Valley.

At the LPP&B, experience what Skiing magazine calls "a top-quality brewpub." Have a great meal, enjoy an award-winning beer, and just sit in front of the stone fireplace and relax. In the summer, kick back on our deck overlooking beautiful Mirror Lake. Downstairs at the LPP&B, experience the legendary P.J. O'Neill's, a true Irish pub with the warm character of aged wood and brick. In business for over 30 years, the downstairs bar is a favorite for locals and visitors alike. Recently, the third floor of the building was completely renovated into a new bar and dining area which is being called The Hop Loft. This space has a great view and also houses our kid’s room, with games, a train table, and a puppet stage sure to keep the little ones happy and occupied. The space is also available for private parties, events, and group functions.

Ask a local where to find the best food in Lake Placid and they will steer you to the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery.

We feature a selection of gluten-free items and many vegetarian choices.  And don't worry about the little ones -- they can choose from our "Brewmaster-in-Training" selections such as grilled cheese or chicken fingers.

"But after spending six hours outside in 5-degree weather, the very best part of visiting Lake Placid was warming up at the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, washing down nachos and wings with great beer, followed by hot chocolate and -- heaven! -- s'mores made right at the table. Apres ski, American-style, it doesn't get much better than that...." USA Today, 1/10/05. 

"A short walk south of the village will bring you to this home of the award-winning microbrew Ubu Ale. (Bill Clinton liked it so much that he had three cases sent to the White House.) This double-decker bar and restaurant, overlooking the southern tip of Mirror Lake, serves pub food from $4 to $20. The atmosphere is fun and friendly and the hand-crafted beers are first rate."
