Description: Old Forge Brewing Company is a fun, casual, comfortable brewpub specializing in healthy pub fare and fresh brewed beer.Our country was built on the skills and labor of old-world artisanal craftsmen. Woodworkers, carpenters, stonemasons, ironworkers, blacksmiths, tileworkers, and many others came here and employed the knowledge and skills of their craft in building their farms, homes, and towns.Nowadays, it is so easy and convenient to purchase generic products from big-box stores, that we sometimes neglect to appreciate the uniqueness and quality of a hand-crafted product.At Old Forge Brewing Company, we strive to honor personal craftsmanship. Our hand-crafted beer is made in small batches to ensure quality and peak freshness, while the healthy and delicious menu has ingredients sourced from local farms and markets wherever possible. Take the time to notice our bar, furniture, and fixtures which were all handcrafted by local wood and metal worker Keith Kocher (Lightstreet Custom Woodworking). Check out our unique tap handles carved and forged by local artist/sculptor J. Mark Irwin (Irwin Sculpture Studio), and our plates, bowls, and beer mugs, all hand-made by local potter Mike Hart (M. Hart Pottery).We welcome you to stop by and visit us on Mill Street in downtown Danville. Have a bite to eat, sip a fresh pint of beer, and enjoy the friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Leave your troubles on the doorstep and let us take care of the rest.

“Always a pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

This is one of the first places I went to when I first moved here from Philadelphia, and one of the only places that makes me feel back in the city. The place is upbeat with a nice interior. The menu is wonderful and I have not been disappointed in anything that I have tried. The beer is good too! I recommend the portabella mushroom burger (and I love meat!!).

“A disappointing cold meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

The place looks great and the menu looks nice. After reading all the positive reviews we were looking forward to a pretty good meal and some beers. The beer was fine (nothing special but tasted good). The food however, was where the place went wrong. We ordered a pretzel appetizer but it did not arrive until after our meal and was luke warm (even though they told us it was late because it was in the oven). One of us ordered the squash and sausage kebab but it was cold. We didn't return it because it had already taken too long to arrive and we were hungry without our appetizer. The other entree we ordered was a baltimore style steak sandwich which was good but also luke warm instead of hot. It seemed like our waitress forgot to serve us our food and it got cold while waiting in the kitchen. Hopefully this was just an off night but we can't honestly recommend this restaurant.

Hang out have a couple great beers and a sandwich. The atmosphere is organic. You'll always have a friend at the bar.

“A Pub for All Occasions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Always crisp, comfortable and welcoming, great place to relax with friends or to bring the family. Great staff - so friendly. Booths and tables on two levels, one small bar on each level, neat outdoor seating on 2nd level. Huge windows overlook historic Mill St. The Mug Club benes are frequent and fun.The Purist Burger with goat cheese on a pretzel roll is without peer. Lots of interesting pub fare on the menu changes with seasons. And of course, great, fresh, cold brews!
