I've been up in Pittsfield many times for Beer Visits, but only recently heard of this place. My next return trip warranted a visit to Ye Old Forge.

I was told the wings were really good so I diverged from my typical burger order. I had the "original" and my friend had another variety of which the name escapes me. Well, they were both very tasty and quite worthwhile.

The beer selection was quite spectacular. On tap there was a nice mix of styles and country-of-origin beers available. I immediately gravitated to the Sebago IPA. This brewery is not yet available in NY State, and I remember from some New England beer fests that they do a fantastic job with their beers-to-style. There was an English IPA that I was anxious to try; unfortunately, my request kicked the keg and so I am left with the mystery.

The bar nicely displays their extensive bottled selection in two tall glass-door coolers located on opposite ends of the bar. It's a great way to showcase what's available and surpasses the need for a beer bottle menu.

I hope to come back soon.

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.
