LAKE PLACID - Back for its fifth year, the Lake Placid Brewfest, Saturday, Oct. 15, has become a beer lover's paradise for the one of the largest craft beer festivals in the region.

Plato is credited with saying, "He was a wise man who invented beer." There will be a lot of wise men, with as many as 70 microbrewers on hand, serving up more than 100 different selections of suds from around the country.

While patrons are enjoying the brews, state Olympic Regional Development Authority officials are encouraging them to tag their favorite Brewfest photos with #WFLPFallFests. Favorite tagged photos will be selected and featured as our "Fall Festival Photo of the Day" on
