Glowing Report from Fork & Barrel

Brian Freedman is impressed with Fork & Barrel in East Falls. Calling the candle-lit bar a destination as much for food as it is for beer.

The highlight pairing of a recent visit was one of the best food-and-beverage matches I’ve had all year—the result of our waiter’s suggestion that the Birrificio Montegioco Quarta Runa, an Italian ale with a subtle but unmistakable perfume from the inclusion of peaches in the brew, might work well with the grilled cheese. He was spot on. The funky-fruity combination of Brie, thin-sliced Granny Smiths and homemade apple butter was the perfect foil for the ale.
