Went for lunch with friends while in the Poconos. Oddly located in a small mall of sorts occupying a large portion of the upper floor and their Belgian beer garden holding a good part of the lower floor.
There's a long bar seating a dozen and a half with just as many booths and bar tables running it's length adjacently. It's a brick back bar with diamond plating shelves and there are mug club mugs hanging a good length of the way down. Behind the bar lies a separate dining area riddled amongst copper brewing vessels. They have a fairly large menu with identified "made with beers" items from soups and aps to entrees. the food was very good and the desserts were terrific. Pouring 7 house taps, Hoegaarden, cider and lemonade. The Steelworkers Oatmeal Stout was outstanding and they made an Apricot coriander beer that was tasty and pleasantly drinkable as well. Collectively, we tried everything they had on tap and there wasn't a clunker in the lot. On a more recent visit we drank the Mirabelle, a plum lambic, which I thought was real damn nice. The waitstaff was friendly and knowledgeable and the place was nice and clean with a good decor (early period bar scene paintings and banners from award winning beers they've made). Pretty much just what I'm looking for in a brewpub.

Now, come 4 PM they open the belgian beer garden downstairs. (So we mulled around town 'til then). An outstanding Belgian beer selection, although slightly pricey, in a dimly lit lounge set up with a pool table and comfy couches and chill chairs. A nice comfortable joint overall. Certainly well worth waiting around 'til 4 to visit.

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.
