This was our first stop on the Mid-Atlantic leg of our east coast tour. Judging by how hard it was to find a parking space on a Friday night, I was hoping the beer would be outstanding. We were not disappointed.

Upon entering the building from the back parking lot, you are inside a mall of many small shops, including a home-brew store which was serving samples. There is downstairs portion of the Brewery which specializes in Begian beer. Unfortunately, with limited time, we did not get get a chance to visit it. After turning a few corners and climbing a few stairs inside the mall, we located Bethlehem Beer Works.

The place was packed and we were lucky to find a table for the four of us. The brewpub has a nice long bar that seems to fill about 1/2 the room, which is long and narrow. Through the glass windows there is a nice view of the street traffic from the restaurant and bar.

The waiter was very freindly and knowledgable about their beers. We ordered the beer sampler and found we enjoyed the pale ale more than anything. But each beer we sampled was quite good. We enjoyed an appetizer and a pint of the pale before heading on to Easton for the night and a trip to Which Brew.

Bethlehem Beer Works has good beer and is a nice and friendly place to visit.

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!
