So So Lousy Lousy Lousy Lousy

Establishment: O'Callagh was Original Saratoga Springs Brewery, Saratoga Springs, NY

This is a sad story. This place had a # of things going for it. A cozy bar in a Victorian building in historic downtown Saratoga Springs. They managed to brew a so-so Pale Ale. So much for the positives. Their other brews were lame at best. The food was mediocre to horrible and the service worse. My wife and I gave this place many chances (too many I'd say now) but I was left with the impression that no one really cared. It's now an Irish restaurant called O"Callaghan's. No home-brews, but Brooklyn Brown, Anchor Steam and Smithwick's on tap to name a few.

Establishment: Gilded Otter, New Paltz, NY

Quality brews; broad selection; excellant food with a varied menu; very attentive service. What's not to like? It's hard to drive past the New Paltz exit of I87 without stopping in.

Awesome! Awesome! So So So So Good

Establishment: Davidson Brothers Restaurant and Brewery, Glens Falls, NY

In my 50 years I've never come across any brewer that produces a better product, day in and day out, than the Davidsons'. In my many trips to the establishment I've never had a bad beer experience. The selection is broad-based and can satisfy any and all beer tastes. The brewpub's "Achilles Heal" however, is second-rate food quality and price. The food is expensive (by Glens Falls standards) and so-so at best. If you're just stopping for a brew or two after a hard day of skiing, I'd highly recommend it.

Establishment: Lake Placid Pub and Brewery, Lake Placid, NY

Based on the 5 criteria used here, this is arguably the best brew pub in the northeast. Not only are the beers and food top notch, they are also reasonably priced. My wife and I visit often, and we have never had even a mediocre experience, much less a bad one.
