Seemingly hundreds of people sinking vast amounts of Forst beer from across the road to accompany the good plain Tirolean food. It's dusty, it's noisy and no place to wear your best clothes but great fun especially when there is live music

Visiting Braugarten FORST is a splendid summer evening idea, with live music, authentic and filling food, and of course, cool freshly-tapped beer right from the brewery across the wooden bridge!

The building is impressive and the brewery is a crown jewel of the South Tirol. Forst is a name that is not known in the USA but is sure is well known in Italy! The beer is superb. The beer garden is fine but not fancy. It's a great place to get off the road, enjoy some history, scenery and... More

For a true beer garden experience try this. Across the street from the Brewery the beer garden has music, beer, and good hearty food. More intimate, one can eat inside the main building which also looked very nice. Our portions were large and filling. The beer is good and very reasonable. Service was on the spot. A very neat experience.

This place is situated on both sides of a main road. On one side is biergarten and on the other side is the restaurant. The biergarten is average in both surroundings and food. Our food was not so hot when it arrived and the standard was average compared to other biergartens in the Merano area. The service was patchy and... More

As regular visitors to Forst over the past 20 years, we are never failed to be amazed at how much we always enjoy the Beer Garden at the Forst Brewery. OK so the food is not Michelin star rated, but what do you expect ? It is good tasty food, quickly served by very cheerful staff and the Forst Beer... More

Typical atmosphere and hearty food with consistent service and a cold brew under the chestnut trees. Too bad we were too early in the season for the music.

We travel often to South Tirol and the food at this place was poor. We had "Schweinebraten" (old meat, Sauce tasted like finished Sauce from the box), also had grilled chicken, too fat and could have stayed longer on the grill. Overall the beer is ok. They have no South Tirol (alto adige) Special dishes..... don't go there. There are... More

The beer that you can drink there (FORST) is not a good one. It seems to be to sweet an you will have an headache the next day. They do a lot of marketing, but sorry, the product did not convinced me at all. The food is ok, typical food, mostly the same that you get in Bavaria. Service often... More

Our beer garden - THE insider tip for a light-hearted evening with like-minded people. Whether on a hot afternoon or warm summer night, Forst Beer Garden is always just right. Old shady chestnut trees create an elegant atmosphere, live music sets the right mood for an entertaining evening, and frosty cold Forst beer and specialties sizzling on the grill provide nourishment for the body. Sports fans love the beer garden: important sporting events, including Formula 1 and MotoGP, are broadcast live on a big screen. The beer garden is also popular with motorcycle enthusiasts and is ideal for large gatherings.
