In the Kitchen with Termac – Forest & Main Brewery & Pub

By Terence O’Reilly, Jr. and Sean O’Reilly, Sr.

When you run a brewery, you want craft beers to look like the dark or pale, nuanced-flavored drinks that customers enjoy. What showcases the ale better than crystal-clear, sparkling glassware?

We could tell you that without a doubt our products are top of the line, and that our service makes commercial kitchens run smoothly, but let’s hear it from one of our customers who runs a successful brewery.

Forest and Main, tucked at an intersection in a trendy section of Ambler, Pa., specializes in Saisons, British cask beers, and India pale ales. It is important that the beer look great in the glass. Owner Gerard Olson reports that his glassware comes sparkling clean from the two glasswashers he has from TERMAC. The dishwasher does a similarly great job.

Located in a Victorian house from 1880s, Forest and Main serves updated pub food and recently expanded into a larger “New Space” venue, where there are more drafts and live music. Although Forest and Main has only had to use TERMAC’s 24-hour repair service once or twice, reports Olson “it was very convenient to get our situation resolved quickly so we could continue flowing through service.

“Having the regular service on the machines is a huge plus for us,” says Olson. The restaurant had originally owned its equipment but staying on top of maintenance and dealing with repairs at inopportune times “got old quick,” he says. “It’s great to know that TERMAC is on top of keeping our equipment running well. It’s great to have one less thing to worry about.” TERMAC’s Glasswasher can handle delicate thin and special glasses quickly, and is available in under the counter models for small kitchen areas.

Forest and Main also uses TERMAC’s Filter Man, specializing in kitchen filters and soak tanks, and G.T.O. Grease Trap services to stay clean and in compliance with environmental regulations.
With TERMAC’s regular service, maintenance and top-of-the-line equipment, Forest and Main can focus on the great experience it offers its customers.
