— A new event has been added to the Flaming Leaves Festival weekend.

While the annual ski jumping event, part of the Art Devlin Cup series, will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6 and 7 at the Olympic Ski Jumping Complex, the first-ever Lake Placid Brew Fest will take place Oct. 6 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the 1932 rink.

“We thought that this was another way to bring on another festival and add an event to what can be a slow season,” Jon Lundin of the Olympic Regional Development Authority said. “Breweries and micro-breweries have been on the rise throughout the country and through the region.”

The event will feature 20 micro-breweries from around the country, including Crossroads Brewing Company, Davidson Brothers, Kona Brewing Company, Magic Hat, Shock Top and Switchback Brewing Company.

“This is a chance to tap into, excuse the pun, a new event with a new market that continues to grow,” Lundin said. “Each of the breweries will be on hand to offer samples and talk brewing. There will also be live music and food provided by Centerplate.”

Lundin said that the event was put together with the help of co-hosts Great Adirondack Brewing Company and Lake Placid Pub & Brewery. The event is sponsored by Centerplate and the Saratoga Eagle.
