Location and contact

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.

Went for supper and a drink. Both were excellent. Staff was friendly. We got immediate seating on a Saturday evening. Only down side was that we had driven into town and it was hard to find close parking.

I have eaten at the Brew Works many times as my former employer was located about 2 blocks away but I never reviewed it before. It was busy as usual when we were there. I chose a featured entrée instead of a regular menu item....More

Fun atmosphere, great service and wonderful menu selections. The harvest salad with their lentil burger is outstanding. 😋

This is a favorite meeting spot for old friends, with good food, attentive servers, on a busy street corner with lots of opportunities for people-watching. It gets busy during Musikfest and the holidays, but so does everywhere in Bethlehem.

The place was bustling on a Friday night. We were asked to switch our table once seated. We were served raw fish. Overall I would not recommend.

Visited after dinner on a Thursday. The place was very busy. We got a few rounds and enjoyed the scenery. Lots of selection but I chose a canned mead. Fun time

My husband and I stopped for drinks only. The place was crazy busy, but the beer was just okay. Nothing stuck out as being amazing and the bartenders were just okay too. When you put your two pint glasses at the edge of the bar,...More

We had been told to eat here for unique cuisine and drinks. We both tried some special dishes and the blueberry IPA, delicious! The wait staff was very helpful in recommending some local fare, unique to the area. Highly recommend but expect a short wait...More

Despite the previous answer that there is no outside seating, there is. We sat outside and enjoyed a delicious meal on a beautiful spring day. I do agree with the previous reviewer that reservations probably are not... More
