I've been speaking with Damien Malfara (owner and brewer for OFBC) about Old Forge Brewing Company in Danville, PA. Damien tells me that they are in the very early stages of remodeling their building and preparing for the eventual opening of OFBC. They'll be using a 5 bbl direct-fired brewing system and plan to have 4 year-round beers and as many as 4 rotating seasonal or specialty beers. I've also spoken with Damien about some of the other details of the bar, and it sounds like he has a great plan for the brewpub. I'm sure Damien will release more details as he progresses, so watch here for future updates on OFBC.
In the mean time Damien tells me he is seeking out a chef for the brewpub. If anyone is interested or knows someone who may be interested, I'd be happy to pass that info on to Damien. Please help me in welcoming Damien, and stay tuned for further details.
