When you can't get enough of the pumpkin flavor - here's where to go in the fall in the Lake George area.
Cheers to Fall With a Pumpkin-Flavored Craft Beverage
Argyle Brewing Company
Brewed using the area’s finest pumpkins, Argyle Brewing Company in Greenwich sells a delicious, mellow-spiced Pumpkin Ale each year. However, this fall favorite is only available for a limited time, so be sure to fill up a glass or growler as soon as you can.
Lake Placid Pub & Brewery
Since 1996, Lake Placid Pub & Brewery in the Village of Lake Placid has been brewing award-winning beers. They have a massive catalogue of seasonal selections that rotate in and out of their lineup. In the past they've brewed up Pumpkin Ubu and Harvest Pumpkin Ale.
O'Toole's Restaurant & Pub
O'Toole's in Queensbury typically has Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale on tap in the fall. This is a refreshing wheat ale with a subtle spice flavor.
The Trap in Fort Ann carries Southern Tier Brewing Company's Pumpking Imperial Pumpkin Ale. They call it "Pumpkin Pie in a Glass," and yet it's not overpoweringly sweet.
Try Mouthwatering Baked Goods & Pumpkin Spice Drinks
When you're ready to sip a warm and creamy pumpkin spice latte, then visit Caffe Vero in Lake George Village. The excellent mix of spices makes their drink taste like pumpkin pie, and you can have it hot or iced. And they use real pumpkin!
Libby’s Bakery Cafe
