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.

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.
