In 2010 the beers from both brewpubs will be called Fegley Brew Works brands, though the names of the brew pubs will remain the same.

Having been to the sister location in nearby Bethlehem I could see some similarities, but generally, contrary to the other reviews, I tend to like this one better. It may be unfair to judge this based upon one visit on a quiet Monday night, but I found the bartender (Dennis) and other employees milling about to be friendlier and more helpful then I recall in Bethlehem, though granted, there wasn't much going on to distract them as I experienced in Bethlehem. I had three beers during this visit, all were good, none great, though the Hop Explosion was better than average. The food (chili & the buffalo chicken salad) was very decent, no problem there at all though it seems you might need to be careful what you choose according to what I heard in conversation. This is a big place with four floors (!) right in the heart of the downtown Allentown area, just a block away from the Holiday Inn on Hamilton Street if you are visiting from out of town as I was. The atmosphere is dark and fairly moderne trendy but not offensive by my take. I was comfortable. There's a constant stream of good music with a few well placed televisions. The variety of brews is pretty solid although I was disappointed to find that they were out of the barleywine this night. Dennis threw me a free round along with a free bottle of water for the walk to my hotel. A few folks sitting at the bar around me were very friendly and chatty (good to have met Griffin, Mr. Mug Club, growler king and member of the unofficial/official Allentown Municipal golf league). All in all, it was a real enjoyable visit and I will be sure to stop here again.
