The burger was good and I liked the atmosphere. Our waitress was AWOL during the meal and the fries were underdone. I had the sampler and the house beers were just okay. I wish we would have been able to try more of their beers on the sampler as they had some interesting looking ones.

Try their beer sampler - 6 glasses (5.5oz each). 4 of the 5 glasses are their house specials with 2 optionals to be chosen from a list of around 10. 2 out of those 4 are good (first is the best and last is the worst) Make sure you choose 'Hopster' from the optionals. This is the best one. Avoid... More

The restaurant has a good atmosphere and great beer! All sorts of food to try. The wings are small but everything else seemed delicious. The pretzal appetizers were amazing!

As with most brewerys we have been to, this one had great atmosphere, craft beer choices, and interesting menu. We have gone here many times and plan to attend the beer festival this December.

Visited for a sampler of 6 beers - awesome! Had a couple of appetizers that were fresh and tasty. Good atmosphere for a brew pub, service was fast and friendly, would recommend for beer lovers and good pub food alike

As the name implies, it has a good selection of beers. The appetizers are good, but only one steak choice. The service was good.

We had the opportunity to stop by the Allentown Brew Works on a Sunday afternoon. We were pleased by the ambience just walking through the door. The hostess seated almost immediately. Our waiter dropped by our table and was wonderful. He was knowledgeable about the beers they brew and their subtle differences. The food was delicious and well presented. My... More

The Allentown Brew Works has a variety of their own craft beers which are expensive. I think 6 dollars for a draught beer is too much. You also can't buy standard popular beers there if you wanted to.
