The East's Best Beers: Ubu Ale

This may sound silly, but I plan trips to mountain towns around the brews that flow from their taps. What would you say are the East’s best craft and microbrews that come from mountain towns?

A tradition among the many adventure seekers who find their way to the wild northern reaches of the Adirondacks is to end an adrenaline-filled day over an Ubu Ale on the shore of Mirror Lake in downtown Lake Placid. This smooth English Strong Ale is red like an ember, with a smooth taste as inviting as the cozy mountain village where it’s brewed. Its whopping seven percent alcohol content means a little bit will go a long way.
