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.

Not easy to find for this out-of-towner.

Nice space, with the serving tanks greeting you upon entering. Stopped in around 2pm on a Sat. and it was mostly empty. Some folks were outside in the garden. After being seated by the hostess, we waited 10 minutes before our server said Hi. After placing our order, the turn-around was great. The beer was good with 6 fulltimers and 3 seasonals; I had both the Hop Explosion and the Porter. I also picked-up a growler of the Pale Ale for later. The food was good, but you did not get alot for the price. I had the pulled pork sandwich that came on a hotdog bun-sized steak roll(about 5 inches long). The way they cut the roll, you don't get much meat and I finished the meal in about 5 minutes. Put it on a kaiser roll and take care of the customer (8.50?!? - come on). That is the reason for the pricey rating. The beer was good and the bartender I talked to was real cool, but I don't see myself eating here again - more of a beer stop if in the area (995 characters)

Stopped by on May 24, 2015 for dinner with the family. Nice and inviting atmosphere with a nice look to it. Our waitress came over quickly to take our drink orders and I had the Time Bomb IPA, while everyone else had water or soda. The beer was just tapped at the Allentown and Bethlehem locations on May 21st, so this was fresh and I added it to the website as well! Our waitress was more than helpful; made a couple of suggestions and was patient while we decided on what we wanted to eat. There are plenty of food and drink selections to choose from, to fit all appetites and preferences. I had the newly added fish and chips, which the beer batter was made with the brewpubs own amber lager, the 2 pieces of cod were HUGE, looked a little over-fried but were excellent and the fresh cut fries were delicious too! The wife got the grilled chicken sandwich with cheese (she enjoyed it), oldest son chose the Iron Pigs pulled pork (named after the local AAA minor league baseball team of the Phillies: Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs; which is also served at Coca-Cola Stadium) we has to stop him from eating it too quickly! Our daughter got the mac and cheese; it was fantastic and our youngest son got a cheeseburger (his usual), he ate the whole thing quickly too! The desserts were great too! Chocolate cheesecakes made with the house porter! Creme brulee for the wife and I and an ice cream sundae to round it out for the youngest.
The check came and we thought the menu said that kids eat free on Sunday's from 4-6, The waitress told us it was for "mug club members" and asked us if we wanted to sign up; which of course we did! Which was really helpful!
Definitely gonna head back again some day! (1,708 characters)

Went to Allentown BrewWorks on May 24th, 2015. Our bartender was Kyle and dude was pretty awesome. I had the bean soup and the nachos w/ guacamole and enjoyed both. Sat at the bar, which had 4 or 5 large tv's with various sporting events on. Thankfully, I don't live in Allentown, but if I did this would easily be my go-to place. Excellent vibe inside, liked the place so much I bought a t-shirt. (397 characters)
