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.
