Big Slide Brewery & Public House opened in June of 2016. We have installed a hybrid 3.5/5 barrel brew-house, right in the center of our space, which features a concrete-topped bar, a comfortable dining room, a beautiful (dog-friendly) patio, and a semi-open kitchen. We offer 10 house beers on tap, with a wide variety of styles from lighter colored beers to Pale Ales, IPAs, Porters, Stouts, and Belgian beers. There are always some new and exciting beers available like a Chili Pepper Pale Ale or a Coffee-Infused Pale. In addition, we have a separate fermentation room, which we call The Funk Room, designed specifically for sour and wild-fermented beers such as Berliner Weisse, Gose, and Lambic beers. Big Slide pushes the envelope of beer styles. In the middle of the bar, you will see a wall of wooden barrels which is our extensive barrel-aging program at work, where we use bourbon, red wine, and fresh oak barrels to age our brews.

Executive Chef Greg Sherman sources most of our ingredients locally, and offers the freshest food in the area. This is not your typical pub grub, but it is approachable and delicious. Our menu features:

Snacks like homemade pretzel nuggets from our sister bakery, Cake Placid, and THE BEST poutine you will ever have;

Salads like the THAI COBB, with Julienne Carrots, Cabbage and Jicama, Spicy Microgreens, Tomato, Avocado, 7 Minute Egg, Applewood Smoked Bacon Bits, Peanuts, Lime And Smoked Chili Vinaigrette;

Sandwiches like OUR VERSION OF A CUBANO, a Grilled Sub Roll with Shaved Smoked Ham, Pulled Braised Pork, Bread And Butter Pickles, Meier's Gruyere, Ale Maple Mustard;

Pizzas cooked in our 700 degree brick oven, like The Share Cropper, with a San Marzano Tomato Sauce Base, Sugarhouse Creamery Dutch Knuckle Cheese, Shredded Mozzarella, Mace Chasm Garlic Harvest Sausage, Red Onion, Green Pepper, Assorted Mushrooms;

Entrees like a Tomahawk Pork Chop or Chicken Fried Chicken over southern-style grits.

Many items on our menu are vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free for those with special dietary needs.

Big Slide Brewery & Public House is located at 5686 Cascade Road (Rt 73), the main road into Lake Placid from the south. This building is a just over a mile from downtown Lake Placid, near several popular and busy sites such as the Lake Placid Horse Show Grounds, the Olympic Torch, the Ski Jump Complex, Craig Wood Golf Course, the ADK Loj, and the Bobsled Track.

Great beer, great food, and great service in a dynamite atmosphere – Big Slide Brewery & Public House.
