Day 148 Drink: Lake Placid Ubu Ale
Lake Placid Pub & Brewery started making beer in 1996 in the small town famous for hosting the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Winter Games. The little brewpub still makes beer for consumption on site, but the packaged product is now made in Utica by Matt Brewing Co.
Lake Placid Ubu Ale is the brewery's flagship offering. The 7 percent alcohol by volume English Strong Ale is named for a chocolate lab and has a inviting brownish red color. Plenty of great malty flavor from Two Row, Crystal and Chocolate malts. A very fulfilling brew.
