Time Out says

Forbidden Root uses herbs, flowers, leaves and spices to brew different flavors, creating a line of botanic beers with ingredients brewers used in early America and Britain. “We have created this brewpub to serve as a showcase for our beers,” said Robert Finkel, founder of Forbidden Root. “We will innovate, get feedback from our customers and continue to create unique, delicious and all-natural beer. We hope to provide our guests with a comfortable and unique experience and bring the community together for a meal, snack and to drink some great beer.”

They’ll be pouring their flagships (Forbidden Root, WPA, Sublime Ginger and Shady Character), along with seasonal brews like Heavy Petal, the first in the Divine Mud series. A honey-centric series of beer, “Hive Minded” is also on its way. The brewpub will serve what they’re calling “American rustic” fare to pair with their botanic beers. They’re also creating a series of elixirs to let people experiment with different flavorings to be added to beers or sodas. (Opening February 18)
