A little brew pub in Lake George Village is in the middle of an expansion in production capabilities that, within a couple of years, could vault it into the ranks of the top 10 brew pubs in the nation, as measured by volume of beer produced.

The atmosphere is what one would expect from a place titled "Adirondack Pub & Brewery:" rustic, birch bark trim, outdoorsy paraphernalia on the walls, etc. To the casual eye, this may be kitschy, but if you look closer, there is a lot of local history on the walls. Old maps, signs that used to mark historic places, it seems as though much was salvaged through the years from the Lake George area and placed on display.
The beer selection, while fairly standard, is really quite exceptional for the size of the place. Their IPA is out of sight, their flagship beer "Bear Naked" is a solid pale ale, and their blond ale and Scottish ales are both well above average. The food is standard-issue for a brew-pub, but it's done well and about the price one would expect it to be.
What makes this place better than average is it's rotating stock. The brewmaster has recently been upping his game bigtime, by offering such things as a Black IPA, and an experiment ale that has the same basic formula, but uses different flavoring hops each month. It's like a science experiment that rewards locals with the ability to try out each month's selection.
Combine the above with an annual Oktoberfest that is still under the radar enough to not be crowded out, has delicious German food, and adds events like keg tosses and "cornhole" to keep innovating, and you have yourself a surprisingly winning brewpub.
