I originally found this place on a road trip with my wife to Bennington, VT. We just happened to stop in for something to eat, and then we saw the beer list. We just made another stop there yesterday. They have about 15 on-tap and a couple houndred bottled beers. It's a nice atmosphere whether going in for a drink or drinks with a meal. We had very good service as our waitress was pretty knowledgeable about most of their beers on-tap and kept coming back to check if we needed another beer or just to ask how they were. All the drinks we've had there have come in the right glass (but I did get a lemon wedge in my Weihenstephaner heffe, which I quickly removed). It has a nice, almost rustic, feel to it and a pleasant atmosphere, but that probably depends on when you go. We happened to be heading home just as people were coming in to eat and it was getting busier, so our timing was pretty good. It's a place I'd gladly make the trip back every couple months to get some great beers. And it was the best Balsamic Vinagarette she ever had!

this place is great, the only problem is getting in there. luckily i live right down the street, you begin to gauge the peek times and the down times, its mostly all peek. but when you finally get a spot the wait staff is usually pretty good, they are always busy so they wont be at your beck and call, but they keep the beers coming and the food usually comes in pretty reasonable time... but whats the rush any ways. i usually spend a good two hours plus taking in the atmosphere. everyeone seems to know each other but its not pretentious. beer selection is top notch and the food is great. their wings are raved about for good reason. prices are very faid and portions are great. awesome spot with the essence of the berkshires.

One of my favorite public places to have a brew! Get's a bit crowded at times but that's because they have so many great brews and after all, there are reasons why places are busy!
Nice porch out back and drinking a great beer outside with friends in the Berkshires with the birds chirpin' and the sun shining is one of the greater pleasures in life.
Great food, terrific wings and one of the best selections in the area so if you're in the Berkshires, Olde Forge is one place you have to "hit hefe's" at!

Ye Olde Forge Restaurant is just a must-visit! They have their normal selection of draught beers and they rotate through those. They work in the seasonal beers and for the most part have a decent selection. The bottled menu is insane - they do have pages and pages of beers - you can get just about anything you're looking for. The service staff are friendly and will go out of their way to help you choose a beer if you're not quite sure what you want.
The wings are the second reason we frequent this place!! The wings are awesome!!! Perfectly done and that's about all I can say on that. The whole menu is good - I've never been disappointed by any food items.
