Stopped here early in the afternoon on a Saturday beer road trip with a friend. We were able to get a seat at the bar on the lower level and spent the next couple of hours drinking beers, having some food and talking to the locals. Everyone was really friendly and gave us some tips on other beer places to check out in the area since we weren't familiar with the area.
The bar itself is small but has a nice feel. If you aren't specifically looking for it, I think you could walk right past the place as you walk down the street in Danville. Once inside it was cool to see all the Mug club mugs hanging on the wall. Service from the bartender was good and she was more than willing to recommend beers and food.
I'm a pale ale and IPA guy so the T-Rail Pale ale and Underbite IPA were right in my wheelhouse. They can their beers at Old Forge and we were able to get a very reasonably priced case of 16 ounce cans for $36 at the distributor behind the brewery. Great value there.
The food we had was good. Seemed like typical pub food but I really liked the chili. I pride myself on my chili recipe and I swear their chef must have stolen my recipe because they were so similar.
We plan to make the trip back here and I'm going to need to buy more cases of beer the next time because I have a number of friends that want their own after trying the T-Rail. Well done Old Forge

Old Forge Brewery is currently my favorite brewery i visit. The staff are great, friendly and attentive. The food is great and they always have a special and/or different selection. They do seasonal events such as "Bacon week" and "American craft brew week". The beer that they have on tap is always rotating so their is always a different option. I am part of the Pub club which essentially means whenever they tap a new beer (which is quite often) you get one on the house. I have only had a few issues with service as in my order being forgotten about or something of the like but it was correct quickly and i was compensated.

Visited on a friday night, quite busy.
I just spent the weekend in central PA with a focus on Knobels. I visited a number of brew pubs. This is the best one in the area, including Selin's Grove Brewing. The restaurant is food focused but I could see how the bar is all about the beer.
Vibe - Kid friendly, but also appealing to a bar fly or a couple without children. I like this place very much.
Quality - Fresh, proper temp, proper glasses. The beers on tap that I had were good. Any BA would be happy with the beer.
Service - Good, with the crowd it was a little slow but generally good. Server was knowledgble about the beer and the menu.
Selection - Somewhat disappointed in the selection available on the day of my visit - it was summer but still only one dark or heavy or strong beer on tap. IMO the beer is good, I rated low because of the limited selection. It would also be nice if they had a guest tap or two.
Food - Excellent - Had the bleu cheese burger. Others in the group had the beef sandwich and salad with chicken. The beer cheese is very good. The pretzel bread for sandwiches is unique and great.
Value - Probably the most expensive place in Danville, but a great value for those of us from the big city.

The bar area for this spot is very "cozy", shall we say. And when I say cozy, I mean, it's frickin' tiny. Maybe 8 seats at the bar, with the brewing equipment to the side of the bar and takin up a lot of space. The upstairs has a ton of room though with an outside seating area also available. I tried one beer, the saison, and it was okay. I probably should have gone with something else, but it was the bartenders suggestion. A nice little spot that has a great theme and is quite clean and seems attended to.
P.S. Propers to the guy on the motorized chair/scooter who asked me if I wanted to race him.

As far as word of mouth goes, I've gotten mixed reviews of this place, but despite my sleep-deprived state when I first visited, I had an enjoyable experience. There are two floors, but I only saw the bottom floor. There's a small bar, and quite a few tables for the smaller floor space of the place, so it's pretty intimate...I'd imagine it'd be a little tight during busy hours. Vibe is plain and simple, no real "theme" going on, but it was nice and homey.
The quality of the beer here is good--nothing spectacular, but all generally good and easily drinkable. They have a good selection and variety of styles, with enough to keep the casual beer drinker happy, and enough to maintain a basic but good quality session for the geeks.
The service was a little bit shaky, but really nothing to complain about; my bartender was a bit young and green, but she held her own.
Food was very good, with basic pub grub and sandwiches, with a few unique options. I believe I had the Bleu Jerk burger, which was mighty tasty. Prices were friendly.
Overall a nice spot, and I'm glad I was able to visit. Would I go back again? Sure.

Old Forge started out as a small little place in this small but bustling town (home to one of the largest medical centers in the state) and its grown and expanded to accomodate its popularity. The brews are solid. A great selection with ongoing tap variety; there's something here for everyone. You'll want to go home with a growler or two or three...or you can pick up their canned selection at a local distributor.
The food is spot on. A nice mix of healthy/local with traditional bar grub. I recommend the blue jerk burger - jamaician jerk seasoning mixed in with local beef then dressed in blue cheese. The only thing as interesting as the menu is the decor! The forge theme is played out in some fun ways with custom scultupe that fits into the flow of the restuarant.

Nice place in a quite little town. I sample several stouts: double chocolate, rye, chili all were good with the rye standing out. I enjoyed the IPL lager and the wheat IPA. Would have licked to try the regular IPA but that had just run out.
The food was good and I would stop again if I was in that area.
