About Our Food
“To me Forbidden Root has always been a blend of approachable, but elevated, comfort food and really great botanical beer. As chef I would like to continue this path with a focus on local, Midwestern, seasonal food with a sense of humor that compliments the work that is being done in the brewery. ”
- Executive Chef Peter Beatty
Whether you're celebrating a birthday, hosting a rehearsal dinner, or enjoying a happy hour with colleagues, we have the perfect space for you!
Please visit the Private Events page to learn more or to inquire about future events.
Take our beers home with you in the 32oz or 64oz vessel of your choice: a double-walled, steel growler or traditional glass growler. Thanks to our state-of-the-art, counter pressure filler, your beer will last up to 60 days if refrigerated and unopened. (We doubt you’ll be able to wait that long, though.) As with all growlers, once opened, beer should be consumed that day.
As a benefit corporation we take giving back seriously. 100% of the profits from our non-consumable merchandise currently go to Green City Market.
