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.

We came here on a beer visit trip we also visited there sister brewpub the Bethlehem Brew Works.

The difference in beers though come... More

I came here last week and had a salad and a beer sampler. The beer sampler is pretty cool because you get 4 beers, and then you get to choose two more off the list to complete the set. The beers were all excellent, and I wish I hadn't been flying home so that I could bring some back with... More

Our family dropped the ball this year and did not make reservations for Mother's Day. Our original plan was to try a neighboring restaurant to the Brew Works, but after being quoted 30 minutes and waiting over 90 (and still no table), we looked for other options. The Allentown Brew Works took our party of 12 as a walk-in. Originally,... More

Recently had the pleasure of dining at the Brew Works. I would describe the interior setting as old warehouse/ modern, very nice, very comfortable. My wife enjoyed a Pork BBQ sandwich while I had a Philly Cheesesteak, both were excellent. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive. Did not have dessert, the sandwiches with fries were more than enough. They... More

One of downtown Allentown's resurgent eateries. What community wouldn't like a "micro-brewery" restaurant? The Allentown Brew Works provides great in-house brewed beers and ales to accompany an eclectic menu of unique pub food, "local" flavor offerings and complete entres. Food quality is consistent. The atmosphere is hip, upscale and modern. The service is efficient and helpful. For a pleasant lunch... More

Good assortment of local and craft brews, often seasonal. Food is starchy menu typical of beer hall. Service was acceptable, but slightly slow, if on time constraints. Location is in area becoming gentrified, so it is an anchoring spot to meet friends. Parking is a block or two away. Ownership is community involved and responsible. A definite place to try... More
