Entrepreneurs Gerard Olson and Daniel Endicott are previewing Forest & Main, Ambler's first brewpub, with an eye toward opening Friday, April 13.
Over the course of more than a year, they've transformed a circa-1880s Victorian house at Forest and Main Streets (!) into a bar-restaurant, squeezing their brewing equipment into a later-vintage expansion of the house.
The century-old spot, replete with knickknacks and plank flooring, looks its age. The first-floor bar in the parlor is snug, and there's a small dining room on the first floor. There's additional dining upstairs.
Chef Kaylin Miska is putting out bacon and lemon-herb popcorn right now, and her repertoire will include such beer-friendly dishes as fries, a cheese plate, pierogis, lamb pie with mash, veggie pie, a burger, roast chicken, and mussels.
