Great selection of local craft beers and very knowledgable. They have a real passion for good food and beer and a creative and tasty menu for both. The atmosphere is very chill and it draws a wide-ranging crowd. Overall, an enjoyable experience every time I've visited,

Stopped in here for a dew quick rounds after seeing Dana Carvey at the State Theater up the road. The bar is nice looking with a ton of tap handles surrounding the wall above the bar. The place was pretty busy and we still managed to find a spot at the bar. They have a good selection of beers from local breweries to others outside the state and country. The service was friendly and prompt. The Breakfast Stout I got on tap was a bit on the flat side so I was a bit disappointed by that. We never got any food although people were ordering it and it looked good. Overall it's a nice place and worth looking into.

Nice variance of seating: table, booth and bar. Wait staff and bartenders was super helpful and overly nice. The insanity that must be the hundred and hundreds of tap handles along the wall and ceiling is just crazy, they musty get one for every beer they get on draft which is awesome.
The quality of their lines have always been top notch as I have gone the day that they change them and they are always fresh. The line-up is usually a mix of super local stuff (from breweries I have never heard of) and quality easier to get local stuff (Yards, Weyerbacher, etc.).
If you are in Easton I would choose this place over anywhere else because it is right on the cirlcle and has super quality beers and ambiance (get some Sogo sushi close by if you are into that kind of thing).

We stopped in here this past Saturday after visiting Weyerbacher. The place is located in downtown Easton and we looked online for a place with a good draft selection and this is what we got.
This is a long restaurant with 20+ seats at the bar with high top booths and tables up front, table seating out back and more seating up stairs. Another cool thing is that they rotate a lot of draft in out and they have over a 100 taps hanging from the ceiling of breweries across the US.
The quality and selection of the beer was good. Over 20 draft selections and a good mixture of local breweries and styles too. It was good to see a nice blend of styles to offer. They do have some specialty bottles from time to time, but we came for the drafts and some food.
The service was good and our bartender was very knowledgeable about the local brews. We were able to try a quick sample of a few different breweries before making our choice on what we wanted to drink.
As for food, pretty simple menu here. We both got some delicious French onion soup and sandwiches that were served with yam chips.
This was in between a bit pricey and leaning a bit towards the reasonable side. Prices seemed to vary with all the different ABV's. Roughly 7/7.50 average for a draft.
Other than that, we were happy r
to have found this place and it was also easy to hop back on the highway to visit our buddy in Long Island.

I stopped in downtown easton's top tap beer bar. 25 beers on tap, most of which were craft brews (yay). The selection was a wide variety of styles from porters to IPAs and american belgins a
to belgins from belgim. The prices ran from 2$ to 9$ all served in pints. I was super happy and nicely buzzed from a 25oz bottle of red and white from dogfish. My buddy was enjoying the founders imperial stout and would not shut up about how nice and fresh it was.
The food matched well with the beer. Great burgers to amazing entrees. If you are in downtown easton Pa check it out and enjoy the beer. Cheers to all the beer geeks

nice place right smack dab in the heart of Easton. decent enough tap selection, around 20 almost all craft brews. good variety of styles, some top notch selections. Had the Bethleham Brew Works Insidious imperial Stout, absolutely delicious and clearly fresh. Spoke with Josh the beer manager. He is bringing in some more obscure belgians and is very knowlegable and enthusiastic.
Food is great...calamari was perfectly crispy and not greasy. burger made with local beef Gruyere cheese and mushrooms was about as great as you'll ever have. service was impeccable with serveral servers making sure we were well taken care of. Food came out very quickly. decor is really nice, great long wood bar in front, antique dining room in back.
prices were very reasonable by NY / NJ standards but probably above the norm for Easton. (burgers starting at $7, beers $5 and up.) fries extra but terrific yam chips included and really good, fries were perfect too.
highly recommended I'll go anytime i'm in area and would probably be a regular if local.

A real nice historic looking building housing a decent selection of on tap offerings. There are about 10-15 taps but the bottle list is about five, maybe six macros. Good chance you will find here on tap Weyerbacher, Victory some Troegs, and perhaps some Flying Fish. I was quite surprised to find Summit here from Minnesota.
Very family and kid friendly (there were lots of kids in the dining room when i went to have lunch) the staff are also quite nice and can help with suggestions. Can only comment on lunch items which were pretty basic but fine nothing really unique or stellar.

As you enter this pub there is a long bar off to the left and a hallway leading to the dining room.Usually I love old buildings like this but the decor and atmosphere to me was depressing, just my opinion. The evening I was there a banquet was in the dining room and people were just beginning to arrive.As with Porters Pub there was a police car sitting out front the whole time I was there. So now I am getting a little uncomfortable.For beer I had an offering from Cicket Hill. Only one beer!!!
I knew the food here was quite good so I asked how long for a salad and as the banquet had not started the bartender said just a few minutes so I had the Smoked Cesar Salad which was a different take on a Cesar and excellent.And as the saying goes I got the hell out of there and safely back to Bethlehem.
A final note, above the bar there is 100 or more old tap handles, it was interesting to sit at the bar and look at each one and for many some memories.

Great beer list - 20 taps with a healthy mix of unusual craft offerings and macro beers (draft PBR? Gotcha covered). The front bar area is quite attractive and fun, but no kids are allowed, so if you have little ones, you must sit in a more formal dining room in the back. The menu is quite good, with lots of interesting choices and a strong emphasis on local ingredients. The execution was less exciting, though not bad - it just didn't live up to the high promise of the menu. The service was quite friendly, but I found a little bit slow - not impossibly, just it dragged slightly at spots. The beer list is the real star, with a couple of good IPAs, including the new Lucky U from Breckenridge and the sometimes hard-to-find Erie Misery Bay IPA. There was a decent selection of locals, including Cricket Hill and River Horse, though I was surprised to see only one offering, the Double Simcoe in bottles, from local standout Weyerbacher. The beer list tends toward the high ABV, it seems. I found the prices slightly steep for the region, but not impossibly so.

Parking is terrible & the meter guy makes continuous rounds.
Check the meter before feeding it... they have different time
limits ranging from 15 minutes to 10 hours and are all mixed, but they all continue to take quarters beyond the max time.... you just don't get anything for your change.
Anyway, the pub was very nice in terms of atmosphere. The food was good, but portions small & pricey. I got the calamarie for $9?, though it was good, there was only about a 1/8 cup, with an equal amount of chopped scallions & a tasty mayonaise based sauce. Wife got the guacamoli & chips... small cup of puree avacado & little else for $8.50. The burgers looked good $10 for what looked like a handmade 1/2lb burger. Opted not to order more & instead went to find another beer pub. Menu was very limited.
Beer selection is limited to 10 rotating taps... no bottles. 2 taps were empty, the eight remaining were decent micro brews & some decent "commercial beers"... yuengling, guiness, & another common irish ale.
