Suburban Burgers: Forest & Main

My job has “banished” me to the lovely suburbs of Montgomery County for a few weeks, so in addition to taking in the scenery of fall foliage and soccer mom-mobiles, I figured why not check out what kind of burgers the ‘burbs have to offer? First up in the series, Forest & Main Brewery in Ambler. Friends have had nothing but good things to say about the brewery, and I’ve tried a few beers that have popped up on tap around Philly, so I knew this had to be my first stop. Plus, on Tuesday nights during Happy Hour (5-7 PM), their F&M burger is only $10! Not long after I arrived, the guy sitting next to me had his burger brought out to him and I said, “YES! GIVE ME ONE OF THOSE RIGHT NOW!”

The burger is topped with PA Noble Aged Cheddar, bacon mayonnaise (!!!) and comes with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and a house-made pickle & chips housed under a shiny, brioche bun.

The burger was cooked perfectly medium and was nice & juicy. And the bacon mayo? OMG! How did I ever live life before without this? I know that the whole “bacon fad” is still kind of a lingering thing, but this was solid – tasty & amazing – really enhancing the flavor of the burger without overwhelming it with a bacon-y taste. All the ingredients were fresh and local. I was completely blown away by this burger, as well as all the beers Forest & Main had on tap. The suburban burger bar has been set so high straight out of the gate that I feel ready to embrace any future disappointment. Get yourselves on a train from Center City as soon as possible and come try this burger now!

  1. Not many “A” ratings handed out by our trusty burger critic, so I’ve got this joint on my calendar when next I visit the greater Philly area. Thanks for the heads up!
