The Forge Brewhouse is using the old traditions of “Rheinheitsgebot,” the German Beer Purity Law of 1516 that only allows beer to contain barley, water and hops, to brew signature beers in house. The Forge is also pushing beyond those traditions to make a corn beer to honor one of DeKalb County’s specialties, IPAs with jalepenos, and many other varieties. The Forge Brewhouse is also creating Brick Oven wood-fired farm to table pizzas.
