This brewpub, which was referred to me by the folks at Weyerbacher Brewing Co, was located in a mall in downtown Bethlehem. The atmosphere was that of sophistication and class. This was not the kind of place you go to sit at the bar and get rowdy. There is a bar, but noone sat at it. The majority of the business was lunch and dinner customers. The service was good, but I do have to say that the selection of brews stunk in a big way. There were six brews from which to choose from. I asked for their backyard summer brew, that they make using tulip pedals and other natural ingredients native to the summer and outdoors. This was unavailable. Next I ordered their scottish ale. This was also gone. I finally settled on their oatmeal stout. It was a decent brew, but nothing too great. They food was better than most brewpubs. There was a real selection of fine items. Of course, I get the quesedillas and my son got the chicken fingers. They were good so I was happy. I have to say that if I owned a brewpub, this is not what I would want to do with it. Also, when you only have six beers to choose from, make sure you have them. I hate being told "we're out of that". That happened not only once, but twice. It's safe to say I'll never come here again.

Visited Brew Works in Bethlehem on a Saturday night. Waited almost an hour but we had a table of ten(wait was to be expected)...Many of us ordered the flight sampler of 6 beers which was very good. Appetizers were pretty much bar food except the Boom Boom shrimp(very good)...I had the Slag Pot meatloaf which was excellent, Fish Tacos were also very good....Service was excellent and we really had a great night

Quite a change of pace from a large patio Colorado brewery, but it works. The food was good. I enjoyed the vibe of the metal and open brewery equipment everywhere. I wish it had more patio space, but ehh. They had more beers in bottles than on tap, which kinda stunk as I would have liked to enjoy it on tap, but still a decent list. Nothing mind blowing, but still a fun place to get to.
