A long time established beer stop in Easton with a great European/English style pub vibe on the inside. Great vibe, great service, great food ... the tap list is small and fairly solid.

Love this place. I wish they had a better selection of tap beers. They pretty much run the same beers. They do have a good bottle selection. The food and service is excellent.

The food is outstanding. I highly recommend one of their sandwiches or specialty dishes. Whatever you choose you cannot go wrong in this menu. As for the beer selection with over 60 beers to choose from on their mug list and another 12 beers on tap I'm sure you will find an old favorite or something new to love. Irish flair meets craft beer!

As you enter there is a small bar directly in front of you to the left and a small seating/stage area to the right. Kind of small with only 1 bathroom I believe. There was a band playing which was kind of cool but was a little loud and made it hard to hurt.

The tap offerings are small, around a dozen but are priced quite fairly but the bottle list was large, unfortunately priced not too reasonabley.

I have been here several times and it is never super crowded. The service is really always quite spotty to be honest. I don't like it when the bartenders seem like they have something better to do then serve you beer which I'm pretty sure is there job.

Overall I would rather go elsewhere for my craft beer in the area.

Went here on Cinco de Mayo with a group of friends. We sat there as a group and each bought beers off of their 60+ beer list to get a team mug. The place is quaint, a little old fashion looking. The seating is a little tight but overall it's not too bad. The line for the bathroom can get pretty long since it's a 1 person at a time kind of thing. The service was pretty good since we had a large group they needed to keep telling us to keep our voices down over dinner hour. The beers kept coming though no matter how loud we got which was nice. The selection of beers is pretty good, nothing too out of the ordinary in today's market but someone just getting into the craft movement this would be a fine place to start. I didn't order any food while I was there but for the people who did it looked fantastic. I ended up having several rounds and the tap wasn't all that much, I'd say that this place is pretty good. Not sure how often I'll get back there but I would stop in if the mood struck me.

Stopped by this place on my way from Jersey to Pittsburgh. They have a decent tap selection but a better bottle selection. The bottles are a bit pricey, but they're probably the same price as anywhere else.
They have a house brew called Porters ESB iirc, its Scarlet Lady ESB, and its mad good.
The food is by far, top level, when it comes to bar food.
The bartender was very friendly and engaging, he wasn't too knowledgeable in beer, but he knew what the good stuff was and how to guide you in your selection. If I didn't have to drive 5 more hours I would've had more beers, since they had a good selection on tap that day. Oh well next time.
Its a very chill atmosphere and have free wireless, and I'd go there again.

As you enter Porter's there is a small bar directly in front of you and there is a small dining room next to this. All in all a comfortable atmosphere. I started with a Harpoon IPA and finished with a Left Hand Sawtooth Ale. The tap offerings are small, 10 as I remember, but the bottle list was large.
I was there on a Wed. eve,early and there were police everywhere. A police car sat in front of the pub the whole time I was there. Not exactly conducive to having a few pints.
Because of this and also I was hungry I had a cup of the chili, which was great and a crab cake, also great.

Like a neighborhood type bar feel. Customers & staff very friendly. Staff very knowledgeable regarding beer. About 8 micro brews & good commercial beers on tap. 100's of bottles to choose from, with a decent beer menu to guide selection. Joined their mug club (free), need to drink 60 listed beers to get your mug. Scratched Dilerium, Motor Oil, & Raison D'etra off the list.
Wife had Lindemans Peche, Maudite, & something else.

Food was good, decent portions & excellent quality & value. Good selection of menu items at a variety of price points. Basic pub type fair to more gourmet type offerings.

Definately will go back, & would recommend to others.

This is my top beer bar in the Lehigh Valley. Last time I went they had Nugget Nectar and Old Rasputin on tap as well as some other classic greats. They have a mug club which can compete with any pub in the nation in terms of variety. They also have a selection of bombers which even includes Double Bastard. Their mug club beer list includes the best from Rochefort and Westmalle as well as locals including Troegs, Victory, and even the best from Bells and Founders. All around great atmosphere, knowledgeable managers and wait staff, and amazing food (even my girlfriend loves their food). Overall, the best pub in the Lehigh Valley to try local greats on tap and in bottle as well as exports.

One of my favorite stomping grounds in the Lehigh Valley, always a great place to try a new brew and have a nice meal.

A: Lovely Irish/Victorian style pub, immediately encountered the bar on my left and dining on my right. Nice, original brick and stone walls surround you.

Q: Very nice and clean.

S: Wait staff is always very nice and corteous and the place is small enough that you really get an intimate feel.

S: About 10 brews on tap, 4 of which were micros. About 30 bottles to choose from. Nice ones too. They had delirium noel for the holiday.

F: Sandwiches and appetizers are always excellent and very filling.

V: Very reasonable for the quality of food and brews being served.

Stopped into Porter's to have a few with a friend from the Easton area one day, and was very favorably impressed. They had a limited selection on tap, but about 60 different beers in bottles. I was able to have an Old Rasputin on tap, which was a nice opportunity here on the east coast. Was able to sample a few more before we left. This is truly an American Pub. Nothing fancy just a nice homey feel. The bartender was great, and the music was pretty decent. A very nice beer sampling environment. I would suggest you drop by if you happen to be in Easton.

This Place has got to be one of the best places in the area! The selection of beers is one of the best with with about 10 taps(6 of them changing regularly) and 60 to 70 bottles.

The food is one of the best kept secrets in the lehigh valley. The head chef, Jermey, Is really something special. The menu is great and the specials each night are well thought out and always top notch!

If you are in the area I suggest that you stop in and have a drink and something to eat. You'll be glad you did.

This was my old college stomping ground (mid-late 90's) and the bar that got me into good beer. Small bar in the front room with a table or two when you walk in. Great stonework and brick gives this corner taproom a special feel. Bar area can be smoky at times, other than that, pretty solid.

Beer list is very strong, although not quite on par with the best in SE PA. Added bonus is Which Brew is across the street, which makes Porter's a must visit as part of a mini pub crawl (you can even add Pearly's in the circle).

They have a mug club and a house beer brewed by Wyerbacher (you have to guess which one). Great upscale pub grub and friendly service make this an excellent lunch stop and an all around good place to spend some time.

I grew up in the area and Porter’s has been around forever. Basically, it was one the area’s first beer bars way before it was hip to be one.

They’ve got a big selection of beers (60?) given the size of the place. Most is in bottle with 8 or 10 taps. I’ve read reviews from people getting down on Porter’s because of their limited tap selection and that their choices tend to be well established craft brews that aren’t experimental enough. Those people are obviously not locals. The fact that Porter’s has survived for this long with what were until maybe 10 years ago very niche brews is amazing.
I’m grateful it made it long enough for me to really appreciate what they have, which honestly is nothing to sneeze at.

Over the course of my last visit the bartender said that they keep their selection a bit more limited and traditional because the beer bar down the street Which Brew has a huge selection. They'd rather not offer the same stuff as Which Brew to kind of help each other out and keep customers rotating between bars.

This is a great little place as long as you can get a seat. I love the atmosphere and decor -old school English pub- but when this place is crowded forget about it. I suggest early afternoon on weekends or later on weeknights. Food is pub grub, but done well. And yes Pennsylvania is still a smoking state, so it can get a little whiffy in there if you are coming from non-smoking states.

If you find yourself there even just 2 or 3 times a year join their mug club.

Labor Day and I have just completed a 60 mile bike ride through the hills of western NJ. Some food and a few good beers are desparately needed, and the best bet in that area is Easton, PA. Wanted to try Which Brew but they are closed on Mondays, so I head up the street to Porters, which I have visited in the past.

Late afternoon locals crowd, nice friendly atmosphere. I am looking for something good on draft and find their selecton somewhat limited: 10 taps, all but 4 more or less wasted on macros/lame imports (e.g. Boddingtons, Smithwicks). And the odd part was the selection of the 4 decent beers: a house Amber (made by Weyerbacher?), something from Brooklyn, Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA from SF and something from Atwater (which turns out to be a vanilla porter, tap handle was for a maibock). Start off with the IPA, which was ok, but can't see why someone bothered to bring this all the way from the west coast. Refreshing for an IPA and went well with my excellent burger and a nice gazpacho (tomatos are in season). Made the mistake of trying the Atwater, which was flat, reeking of vanilla and generally ponderous.

Bottle list is quite long, but nothing too surprising. What I couldn't understand was the general lack of PA and decent east coast micros either on draft or in bottles. Wanted a hoppy pilsner and Pilsner Urquell was about the only reasonable choice (no Victory Prima, Stoudts, etc. or other Czechs). Also, I've gotten used to the no smoking law for NJ and NY bars and was surprised to find that PA still allows smoking and just about everyone in Porters' was puffing away. Cut my visit short when I got tired of the smoke drifing in my face...

And they said Beer Advocate magazine would never amount to anything...

Thanks to an article by Lew Bryson in a recent issue of BA's mag, I felt compelled to travel to Easton, Pennsylvania. Labeled as one of nine lesser known beer destinations, Easton turned out to be well worth the trip, and Porters' Pub was one of the reasons why...

Porters' is on Northampton Street, in a worn but not dangerous part of town. An unassuming entrance on the corner leads to an old-school pub on the inside. Classic woods and brick, Porters' very much feels like its been serving drinks for decades...

Wood bar to the left as you walk in, seating maybe 10 if you squeeze tight. Dining tables in an adjacent room to the right. 1 small TV, above the far end of the bar, and only visible if you're close to it. No jukebox, though M.O.R. music controlled by the barkeep plays in the background...

Let's grab a seat at the bar and get something to drink. 10 taps, but we're not overly pleased with the selection. They've got a tasty alt from Legacy as the house beer, and a couple of other decent offerings, but mostly it's standard imports and macros. Non-plussed, we ask for the bottle list. Bingo...60 bottles, and a very well-thought out selection indeed. Many different styles and countries are represented. American micros, German hefes, British and Irish stouts, Belgian ales, etc. Something for any mood you're in...

I'm getting hungry. The menu looks good, though standard for a pub...Is the chili good I ask Ryan, my bartender. Not good, really good he claims. Ok, let's rock that...and he's right. Add a couple of drops of hot sauce and go to town. My friend Dan has a grilled chicken sandwich and is similarly in heaven. The point; make sure you eat something if you go here...

Overall, a really nice local pub. If you have the ability to go on a Saturday, you will enjoy excellent service from our new friend Ryan, a top-notch bartender. A quality selection of bottles, great food, old-school atmosphere...what more can you ask for?

**Stony's Biscuit** - When you sit down at the bar, your eyes will inevitably wander toward the array of pewter mugs hanging from the ceiling above. Inquire, and you will learn that you too can have your very own mug. Just drink each of the aforementioned 60 bottles on their beer menu...

Atmosphere: Walked into this Irish/Victorian style pub and immediately encountered the bar on my left and dining on my right. It was nearly 10 o'clock on Christmas Eve so they weren't serving food. Looks like the regular and people who just left work were there. Nice, original brick and stone walls surround you.

Quality: Very nice and clean. I was told the bar was revamped 18 years ago by my friend who owns Which Brew.

Service: Good service, the bartender let me try some samples and then I picked a bottle of Raison D'etre from the bottle list. He appropriately gave me a chalice and let me do the pouring.

Selection: About 8 things on tap, 4 of which were micros. About 30 bottles to choose from. Nice ones too. They had delirium noel for the holiday.

Food: Wasn't able to get any. Heard it was good.

Value: My friend wouldn't let me pay the tab so I have no idea what the prices were like. I guess they were on par.

Porters' Pub is a great little English-style pub/restaurant just down the street from Which Brew.

It's a cute and cozy place with a wood floor, green walls and burgundy tablecloths, and a stone wall in the dining room. There's exposed brick behind the mahogany bar (the building dates from 1833 and it's been restored to reflect that); and over 2000 pewter mugs cover the ceiling (you get into the mug club by drinking all of the 60 different beers they carry). They have English darts, and the bar area is decorated with a kind of University theme that features row-boat and sculling oars hung from the ceiling. There's one small TV for games and what not, but the locals are a fun and friendly lot so you shouldn't have any trouble striking up a conversation.

They have 10 taps that feature the holy trinity of Guinness/Bass/Harp as well as a few beers from Lancaster Brewing, Troeg's, and Weyerbacher (the Porters' ESB). Yuengling is, of course, necessary (not really, but at least it's better than Miller Lite) and Franziskaner (or some other interesting import) rounds out the bill. The bottled beer list is pretty good as well, with about 60 brands.

The service is good, and the bartenders know a little bit about the beer. They have some of the appropriate glassware for specialty beers, but normally you get the standard 14 oz. shaker glass.

The food is always good, and sometimes excellent; and runs from standard pub fare to more elegant dining cuisine. The prices are reasonable.

What a cool little place. Heck North Hampton Street is the place to be. We started at Which Brew 665 N. Hampton and after a few beers walked down to Porters 700 N. Hampton. We wanted to see the Mexico vs Argentina World Cup Soccer game that was on yesterday at 3pm. Which Brew doesn't have a TV so the lady called down here to Porters and the guy said he could change the channel for us. When we got there he already had the game on and said Mexico 1 goal Argentina 1 goal. We missed the first half but he set the TV for just what we wanted. I thought that was excellent service! The selection was good too. The taps were not quite Which Brew but the bottles *certainly* made up for it. Of interest on tap there was Anderson Valley Summer Solstice and Summit Extra Pale Ale.

Very good bar.

Atmosphere: Small and quaint. Plenty of live music. Cute women. A little smoky.

Quality: This place oozes quality.

Service: Good. Attentive. Bartender knew his beers.

Selection: The beer list is extensive and shows a lot of thought. Several local breweries (Weyerbacher, Victory, Troeg's, etc.) are represented. Several other very good beers from other countries (Westmalle, Chimay, Celebrator, Fuller's). I wish the bar would lose the macros.

Food: Upscale bar food plus some other nicer entrees. Everything I had was solid.

Situated in Easton, and literally one block up and across the road from the excellent Which Brew, is Porters’ Pub. Last time I was in Easton I was too busy stealing cars so I didn’t get the chance to pop into here, so it was nice to get the opportunity to return to Which Brew and finally visit Porters’ Pub. However, no sooner had BA erica parked her Car near Porters’ then we noticed about three Police cars parked right outside, so we decided to hit Which Brew first, then returned here when the fuzz had split.

Located on the corner of Northampton and S 7th Street, it has a faded and weather beaten exterior that lends it a distinctive look of a long time neighborhood local. The entrance is one of those old style corner double door jobbies that open into a small interior ante-chamber, obviously this is to protect the locals from large gusts of cold air from blowing in whenever punters come and go. A wooden bar to your left sits against the back wall and stretches back to the Kitchen area. I also noticed that the entrance to the Cellar was behind the bar, one of those lift up hatch-like door in the floor of the bar, not seen those space saving devices since my drinking days back in England.

10 Taps run on an old looking brass stand and included a Guinness Nitro tap at the end. Other brews included a local “Porters” house brew (from that “W” Brewery), plus Harp, Smithwicks, Killians, Bass, and a brew from Lancaster amongst others. But great minds think alike, erica and I both opted for the Sly Fox Oatmeal Stout with its instantly recognizable large plastic Bushy Tail Tap (which looks like it should lit internally). This was also served on Nitro and damn tasty I have to say. A nice range of bottle brews elevates row by row near the taps, whilst the rest of the back of the bar has bottles of liquors.

Nice mix of bric-a-brac litter Porters’ and breweriana including an aged Samuel Smiths Bar Towel hanging below the small TV set in the far back corner behind the bar. Aside from the draft brews, there are around 60 or so bottled beers all rather neatly listed on a small A-sized paper Beer Menu folded into three. It seems that you can join the Mug Club by sampling every one of these bottled brews in a year, thereby gaining yourself one of the rather cool looking Pewter-style ‘Porters’ branded Tankards. I guess the very large Gallon-sized Pewter Mug hanging proudly from the ceiling must belong to the owners!! Service was good and the banter between the locals was friendly enough.

It was a relatively quiet Saturday afternoon when Erica and I we visited, so we nabbed two free stools at the corner of the Bar area, around 7 other people were drinking there, including a couple of said Mug Club Members playing some kind of game with several of the Die that were in small glass jars on the bar. A few tables litter the Bar area but most are in a room to the right of the bar which is smoke free until midnight I noted. Decorated with lots of rural things and dried flora & fauna on the supporting columns lend it a harvest country feel. This room really is for those that wish to eat it seems.

My only complaint was the smoky atmosphere in here, I did note that they had one of those Cigarette Smoke extractor fan box thingies on the roof but it was either, turned off, blocked, or just shagged out. As such, the acrid smoke is a little too much when sat at the bar for some length of time, but I guess we could have sat in the smoke free eating area, yet that seemed a waste as we were not eating and we would have been taking up much needed room destined for a gaggle of hungry guslers that came in soon after we did.

Nevertheless, despite the smoky atmosphere, I enjoyed the visit here and would definitely return again when visiting Which Brew, but I am not sure I would make the drive out especially for Porters’ though.

Thanks again to BA erica for the ride out here…..what the heck is that bloody Castle-looking thingy opposite anyways!?!

Last Visit: Saturday 19th November, 2005.

The "Yen & Vida Intervention Tour '04" seems like a dream now. I remember bits and pieces of the day. The cases of beer in the corner at Weyerbacher marked only with an "I", being served at Bethlehem Brew Works by a man named Squishy Bear, a German Beer Hall in a mall, and I think we stopped for lunch at Porters...
A small 2 room pub on the corner at the foot of a hill from hell (make sure you put your emergency break on), you can sit in the bar area, do formal dining in the side room, or sit at one of the handful of tables out front. The "L" shaped bar seats about a dozen with a handful of bar tables spotted about, mostly along the the large open front windows. A "brick wall here and dark wood lowers and painted green uppers wall there" interior, burgundy tableclothes and green curtains, mirrors behind the bar lined with spruce and Xmas lights, a TV in the corner, and 3 types of pewter mug club mugs overhead. A large cut entranceway pours you into the side room, with 10 tables, ancient stone walls and a painted green ceiling. The rooms are decorated with the likes of old college pennants, a crew oar, musical instruments and artwork for sale and there's a sign that reads, "Street girls bringing in sailors must pay for room in advance".
10 taps, only 8 of them currently occupied (Yuengling, Guinness, Harp, Bass, Smithwick, HB Lager, Riverhorse Summer Blonde, and the Porters Pub house beer, which is the Weyerbacher ESB) and roughly 60 bottles (some decent micros and the usual Belgian, German and English suspects). I had a Heavyweight Lunacy bottle with lunch.
I had a burger on a portuguese roll. Food was good standard pub fare and service was pleasant, no problems there. I'd like to see the tap collection when it's running at full strength...

A really attractive daily double this can turn out to be (combined with Which Brew). Porter's Pub has some mighty enticing offerings at a fair value. The beer list is certainly appealing, with offerings from Easton's own Weyerbacher, and a smattering of varieties of Brooklyn, just to name a few. Of course, the imports are well-represented witht he likes of Delerium and La Trappe. The mug club is certainly a nice touch, and would be a worthwhile consideration for any local who frequents this place. Their menu ranges from the basic pub fare to some items that are twists on old favorites (i.e. the burgers on portuguese rolls). A visit to Porter's is a must if you are in town for any reason...

Nice little place not far from the weyerbacher brewing co, actually they contract a house brew out to weyerbacher too. Cozy atmosphere, and very friendly staff. The beer selection is kinda sparse on tap, but a lot of good bottled beers to make up for that. The food is wondeful, anything from burgers to seafood, very nice menu. I really enjoyed it here and will be back.

Wonderful little place on Northhampton that looks like it’s been around much long than only 1990. Rubble and brick walls in the dining room and the bar are ceiling covered by hundreds of engraved pewter mugs belonging to “mug club” members. Membership is attained by drinking the 60 beers on their list. They have more than 60, but they thankfully don’t include macro-types. The lowliest ones on their list are Red Stripe and Dos Equis. They sport a good number of micros in addition to fun, different imports like Mackeson XXX, Trompe La Morte, and Delirium Tremens in addition to their house brew, Porters ESB, which is contract brewed by the local Weyerbacher. Bar staff was very knowledgeable and friendly, and it is the bar policy to save Grolsch swing tops for homebrewers. I left at the end of the night with 17 free of charge. Live music after 10pm late in the week and over the weekend. The place, bar and restaurant, did get crowded, but there were plenty of beer lovers in this friendly crowd. Porters’ should be a stop for any beer afficionado in the Easton/western NJ area looking for a pretty good selection of beer and some music. I will definitely be back as I was only able to get to 8 of the beers on the list. I only wish it was closer to the center of town. IMO, it’s just out of walking range.

3/16/03 Update:

I’ve had the food there twice and wasn't disappointed. Their burgers are big, messy, and delicious. Also, the bourbon-glazed filet is tasty as was the Valentine's Day special Chilean sea bass with jerk spices and smoked gouda. Two dishes (baked brie and soup) did come from the kitchen cold, and I blame it on the kitchen, not the server.

4/13/05 Update:
Draft beer selection seems to have slid a bit. Regulars now incglude Guinness, Bass, Harp, Yuengling, Smithwicks, blah blah blah. They will still put some goodies on like Biere d'Art, Troegs Seasonals, and Lancaster Milk Stout, but I find myself now finding refuge in the bottle list which has actually picked up some of the slack. Gone is Red Stripe and some of the other "fillers". Beers like Rochefort and Three Floyds have taken it's place. Nice.
