Forest and Main --Ambler Brewpub

Went there for the first time tonight.

Finally, a brewpub IN THIS AREA that does proper English Bitters, served at cellar temp, in the right glass. The beer is very good, and I care. We had the Spring Bitters, Tiny Tim (also a Bitter), and Noir (dark famhouse ale); all served off hand-pump. And again, I care.

Beers are focused on either English or Belgian istyles, and the selection (about 7 to 9) is impressive for the size of the place.

Service was good, and the food was very good as well. The menu is real limited, but everything that we ordered was well prepared and tasty. We got the mussels for an appetizer to share. The burgers (while very pricey) were fantastic; Aged Cheddar, and Bacon Mayonnaise. Damn good. Fish and Chips were also nicely done.

I forgot my Growlers; a tragic mistake. But I will be back. Next time you want to throw back a few, go give these guys some business.
