Lake Placid Pub & Brewery

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

2014 & 2015 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 almost 100 different styles of beer over our 19 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, plush toys, and activities 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. Our menu features pub classics like mouthwatering cheeseburgers, delicious BBQ ribs, crisp flatbread pizzas, and the best wings this side of Buffalo. Other favorites include Fish & Chips, NY Strip Steak, Shepherd’s Pie, Steak Salad, Tuna Melt, and Tortellini Alfredo and more. 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. Après 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."
