“The brewery and taproom located at 1043 Route 9, between exits 19 and 20, has recently announced a new name: Lake George Brew House. Since the brewery was purchased in late 2016, it had been dubbed the Lake George Beer Hub. After some possible market confusion, brewery management decided to use the more appropriate moniker “Brew House” in place of “Beer Hub”. The 22,000 square-foot brewery features a spacious taproom to sample the beers (and soda and cold-brewed coffee) crafted on premises. All the beers served in the taproom are brewed in-house, hence the new name. Currently, Lake George Brew House brews beers for Cooperstown Brewing Company, Harlem Brewing Company, Davidson Brothers, and more.
The Lake George Brew House team is also installing a three-barrel pilot system to develop new craft beers for its own house brand. The house beers are scheduled to be on tap at the brewery in October. Bottle and can release dates will be scheduled at a later date. The beers from the smaller pilot system will be experimental, and beer geeks are encouraged to keep an eye on social media and the website for releases. The taproom staff is eager to hear what local craft beverage connoisseurs think, and the best brews will be added to Lake George Brew House’s regular production.
2017 has already seen the addition of new equipment, including a canning line and lager tanks. The much-acclaimed I-87 IPA and I-87 Northway Nectar have both been released in cans, and are a stylistic departure from previous styles produced at the location. The taproom will be renovated in steps, so patrons can look forward to seeing improvements with every visit. Music, trivia, and other events are planned to draw in more craft beer lovers, as if great beer weren’t enough. Visitors to the Brew House can also visit the mezzanine for a bird’s-eye view of the brewing process. The tours are self-guided, but guided tours are available by appointment.”
