This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at Lake Placid Big Slide IPA.
The Lake Placid brewery is an interesting story as they have a brew pub in the Olympic area where they offer draft beer and live events. None of the food sold in the brewpub is kosher and the beer they sell there is not under kosher supervision. But about seven years ago they decided to shift production of all of their bottled beer to the FX Matt Brewery in Utica, NY.
But enough about the brewery, lets talk about the beer. The Big Slide IPA was introduced in 2014, but I did not come across this until I saw it in a Price Chopper in Norwich, NY in the mix your own six section. After sufficient chilling, I opened this and enjoyed it with Mrs KB at the close of a rainy weekend in Camp M. The beer poured a rich orange/copper with about an inch of fragrant foam. The hops were present but not overpowering and there was some decent bite in every sip from the beginning through my last gulp. There is some pine as well.
Lake Placid Big Slide IPA is under the Kosher Supervision of the Va'ad of Detroit as is every other beer produced at the Matt Brewery plant in Utica, NY. Keep in mind, not all Lake Placid is brewed in Utica, so check the bottle for the Va'ad of Detroit kosher symbol or the kosher beer list on my page.
