Established on April 15, 1998 by the Fegley Family, the Bethlehem Brew Works successfully captured the essence of Bethlehem’s steel industry in a 250 seat brewpub. Accompanying the handcrafted beers brewed right in the restaurant is a full bar specializing in single malt scotches, small batch bourbons, and specialty martinis.

I go to the Bethlehem Brew Works at least once a week, most weeks. The chicken cheesesteak is my favorite comfort food menu item. 1/2 off apps after 9pm - chicken fingers are amazing! Great comfort food and delicious, specialty beers.

Preparing for a trip to Bethlehem my wife & I found Brew Works on line & were very excited to go for lunch. But it was kind of a let down. We were seated quickly since we were 1 of 3 customers. It took a considerable amount of time to be waited on. Especially considering how much staff were standing... More

We stopped into Bethlehem Brew Works for a couple of brews. They offer a nice selection of brews. Nothing stood out, but they were enjoyable. Give BBW a try, it is worth a shot.

Foremost, I like their beers, high ABV and high IBU. The menu was quite interesting. What I ordered was too salty for me, not while eating it but afterwards I was very thirsty. I was disappointed that their warm German potato salad was not like the authentic German Potato Salad. Bavarian red cabbage was good, so was Bessemer's Bratwurst. My... More

We recently ate here during a weekend stay in Bethlehem. The place draws a great crowd. The service was great and the portions were large. They pride themselves on using fresh, local ingredients. They offer a large food and drink menu and the server provides an overview of the beer choices when he/she arrives at your table. Prices were average... More

You get what you see at this place. Standard bar food at a reasonable price. There is nothing particular great, but it has the common bar food you see and want. The service is a little slower.

Waited for service. Waited for waiter. Waited for drinks. So on and so on. Don't waste your time at this place when a ton of better places exist nearby. I should have known the ace would be a headache when I saw that Obama stopped there for a beer!!!
