Nothing entices the senses quite like the perfect beer and food pairing. Envision the ideal melding of flavors, a sensual dance of aromas, flavors and colors from plate and pint alike.

At Fireforge Crafted Beer, we love to drink beer with food. That’s why we’ve built an on-site prep kitchen for making small bites, shareable snacks, meals and even desserts.

Many of our beers are inspired by favorite foods, nostalgic dishes and culinary curiosities sampled on our many travels. We give our relationship with vendors as much importance as our relationship with the food itself, always seeking to bring you the best in locally sourced ingredients when possible.
