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!
