'Test Kitchen' series resuming at Lake Placid brewpub

Here's a food-and-drink tip for the new year. The Big Slide Brewery & Public House plans to continue its "Test Kitchen" food-and-drink series.

Beginning next Thursday and repeating on the first Thursday of each month, the brewpub, located at 5686 Cascade Road in Lake Placid, will offer a three-course prix fixe meal with beer pairings for $30 per person.

Big Slide opened last June on the main road into the village, with Stu Ruttan as general manager. Founder Christopher Ericson also is owner of the 20-year-old Lake Placid Pub & Brewery.

The facility has a hybrid 3.5/5 barrel brewhouse right in the center of its concrete-topped bar, and offers a dining room and a semi-open kitchen, as well as a separate fermentation space called The Funk Room, designed specifically for sour and wild-fermented beers such as Berliner Weisse, Gose, and lambic beers. And, in the middle of the bar is a wall of used whiskey and wine barrels in which beer is being aged.
