This place is on the corner of Main Street in downtown Bethlehem. From the street you can see the giant copper beer vats inside the front window. The inside is inviting with a relaxed vibe. This brewpub has incorporated a lot of steel inside to pay homage to this town that was once a a small epicenter of the steel industry. Much like many local brewpubs, Brew Works has an industrial look, is dimly lit, and has a good selection of house made beers. Their oatmeal stout is one of the best I've had. They offer a small group of steady beers as well as new brews and seasonal selections that rotate. Beer flights are available year round as well as bottle selections for enjoying there or taking home. There is also a good several handfuls of other craft and international beer. The food menu is just as full, with a number of solid pub choices, Pennsylvania German dishes, and fare made with their beer. A must have is the Bavarian soft pretzel rods rolled in cheese and butter served with a cup of beer cheese. There is plenty of room and also a lounge downstairs called the Steelgarden Lounge. This establishment is a definite if you are in the Lehigh Valley.

I swung by here for lunch on 05JUN14, enroute to the Reading WWII Weekend. BBW was easily found on the first floor of a corner building in downtown Bethlehem. The place runs long from front to back, with brewing equipment visible right up front at the windows. There were plenty of tables and booths, and about halfway in I found the bar, running back along the left side. The whole area was bright and airy, and a mix of rock and pop was playing in the background.

They had about 10 brews on tap, with a few bottles also available. I settled for the well-made Maibock, which hit the spot. It paired well with my tasty chicken cheese-steak sammich. The bartender was very friendly, helpful and attentive throughout my visit. I would not hesitate to stop by again if in the area. Prosit!
