Very strange but awesome place. It is inside a colonial era two story house turned into a full bar and restaurant. They have about 8 of their beers on tap, no guest taps, with styles separated by English, Belgian, and French. British styles on cask. French cider on tap was possibly their strongest offering besides their wicked low abv dry stout. Ambiance was awesome, low lighting, old colonial feel. We had a long wait for dinner but wasted time in the bar room with the TV on. Food was good, expensive, with highlights being the Belgian onion soup. Burger was good, lamb shank was good though no sides and odd white beans served with it. A tad bland for me. Prices were up to $20 for entrees. Had fun, food and beer above average. Ambiance high.

Cozy little place. Known for their world class saisons. Food looked a bit pricey, but I didnít partake. Bottle release was painless - a marvel these days. Wish they had flights available although I was told that was just because it was a beer release day. Normally they do 4 oz flights.

Beautiful location in an old two story house. The front room to the left is where you will find the bar. The other cosy rooms are for dining. I arrived bang on opening time so no problems with grabbing a seat at the bar. Forest & Main mostly focus on English and Belgian style ales, and the quality is generally very good. Itís also worth asking if they have any bottled releases in stock. Delicious snacks available and I do recommend doing yourself a favour and trying the food - itís excellent. Everyone here was extremely friendly and easy to strike up conversation with. Great value and a must visit.

An old house that is small and comfortable. Family like atmosphere, very pleasant. Service is friendly and pleasant. Beer ranges from boring to brilliant, flights available and food is a bit pricy but nice. A very good experience and ask for bottles, they donít advertise. They have a quiz night that is fun

I heard of this place yesterday, and I went to it yesterday. I am certainly glad that I did. The place is located in an old house. The bar is a small space with a few stools and a dining room has maybe seven tables in a small rustic room. Standard hipsteresque, rustic implements adorn the walls. It was a Sunday, so they were serving the Sunday dinner paired with a one-off barley wine (Telemachus). My girlfriend and I, anticipating a long drive, decided not to get a massive Sunday dinner and instead opted for lighter beers and a lighter dinner. The food was pretty expensive, but it was certainly tasty. However, the relatively inexpensive beer made up for the price. A glass of beer was between $4.50 and $7.00. Fortunately, the beer was excellent. I had all the English-style beers, and each was excellent. The waitress was attentive and very friendly. She also was able to talk freely about the beer and the brewery. The place was relatively quiet when I was there, but it wasnít dead. The music that was playing was to my liking. Everything was in place. With eight beers on tap, I think that the selection is pretty good, since most people have never had a single one. This is especially true because they come in a number of diverse styles.

Finally made it up here. A nice small spot with a tiny bar and a good number of seats. Very traditional looking design with the old victorian design. The service was great here. Everyone wanted to talk to us and get us drinks and food. There are 8 taps - 5 draft and 3 cask. They had one bottle available but it was sold out. The food was very good. The cheeseplate ws nice, plenty of bread, good fries, and fun popcorn. Priced fairly and affordably. I was only slightly let down by the beer. I think this brewery is good but not the hype that you hear.

Cool stop. Awesome that the brew pub is in an old victorian type house. There was 6-7 beers on tap, which were all very good. Had the bacon popcorn which was also a nice snack. Also had a bottled dark saison available to purchase in bottles. Iíd definitely make another stop there in the future.

Enjoyed a few pints here with Dallas awhile back. very interesting vibe - feels like youíve entered someoneís home and are drinking pints in their piano room. Handful of taps featuring english style ales and interesting saisons. Really looking forward to the next visit - and eventually actually sitting down and having a meal at this place.

Ambiance - great area, really nice place inside. Feels like your at someoneís home. Service - bartender is super versed, perhaps one of the brewers ?? Selection - I guess you can get bottles, but when I went it was only growler fills. There are 8 taps, and the beer is very good. Food - adequately reflects the craftsmanship of the beer, very good. Value - you get what you pay for. Itís pricy, but not overpriced.
