I probably liked this place more than I would have otherwise since i just came from Golden Avalanche where things were horrid. Overall this is a really nice brewpub, about standard for what Iíve seen. Large room, long bar, dark lighting late at night when we arrived made it quite relaxed. The bartender was cool, because after we had the Berliner Weisse and one other thing, he let us know that Allentown Brew Works was a better place to go drink as they have a more interesting beer selection. Still, I liked this place well enough, and the bottle list for the Steelgaarden was a nice read but it didnít contain anything incredibly rare.

Lots of brick and steel which is part and parcel with Bethlehemís history. They have 10 beers on tap and about 40 different Belgians in the bottle which is an odd combo. The beers were hit and miss for me. The stuff I didnít like I was indifferent to but the stuff I liked, I really liked. I thought the hefe was fantastic. The cheeseburger was quite tasty as well. Itís 10 bucks for a flight of 6 beers but they were fairly big pours. Plenty of parking behind the building. Iíll definitely come back when Iím in the area.

This is a young, positive, upcoming place. Beau, the Brewmaster is maybe 35. The waitresses/female bartenders are positive though not very knowledgeable about the beer. The scoop is that they are planning to open a second brewpub in Allentown. This pub has already revived much of downtown Bethlehem. This place is huge. Parking is not too bad if you donít mind going around the block. The Brewmaster does not mind some experimentation as observed by the in-house lambic on tap.IVery well lit mid-day and I could see why it is a popular local spot. Better than average beer.

I rather liked this place. Dontown Bethlehem seemed to be an area on the up and this place is pretty much at the heart of that. Steel themed as one might expect. Quiet midweek afternoon visit, so the staff was friendly and attentive. Eight of their own beers on tap. I think the sampler was supposed to be six beers, but I got all eight for the same price. The beers were a mix of mainstream (all rather well done) and more experimental (Cassis lambic). Although we found a nearby street parking spot pretty easily, it was 1hr maximum, so I rather struggled to get all eight beers down in the time available. Probably would have stayed longer but for the parking restriction.

I must admit I was very surprised by this place. I was expecting it to mediocre. There are usually 7 to 8 beers on tap. I found the session beers to be average and the higher ABV beers to be much better. Food is reasonably priced, and they have burgers, wraps, pasta, and even steaks if you have the cash. A semi-contemporary decor inside, with a steel theme. Prices are good, especially during happy hour. A sampler is only 8 dollars. They have a sister bar (Steelgaarden) in the basement, which is dimly lit with a trendy type martini bar lounge ambiance. There are also two nice pool tables. The Steelgaarden offers a nice selection of bottled Belgian beer (nothing rare), house draft beers, mixed drinks, and hard liquor. The beer menu is broken down by style, which I really liked. If you are in Bethlehem, you would be a fool not to stop in to both bars.

Huge inside (multiple levels as well). Stoped by for Sunday lunch. Sandwiches were OK. Beer samplers come in 5.5oz glasses x 6!

Stopped here for dinner on my way back from Lancaster. The interior is your typical brewpub. The food is above average, the service is decent and the selection was great. I had the peach lambic while there and liked it enough to pick up a growler to bring back with me. Interesting town and ambiance.

Neat old bulding in the downtown looks like an old store front. Hung out in the lounge downstairs .... low lighting with candles .... played pool and tried some brews at the bar .... had plenty of young people down there ... upstairs was full of seating and food .... definitely a cool hangout in the downtown and the beer was a little above average ... didnít try the food here, but iíd go back again

Took the family one Saturday. Our waitress was one of the nicest, best servers Iíve ever had, and easy on the eyes too! I got a sampler of everything, and it comes in a cool gear/cog looking glass holder. The beers kick ass, the food selection is good, and the prices are reasonable. One of my favorite brewpubs.

Cool bar in a pleasant part of Bethlehem; dimmed lighting and nice seating options; reasonable crowd. Six beers upstairs (Oatmeal Stout, ESB, Berliner Weisse, Hefe, etc.), with lots (~100) of Belgian beers in the downstairs section (Cantillon, Rodenbach), which helps. Waiter gave us directions to the new Allentown Brew Works (where their brewer was opening a new location). Very pleasant place to stop; decent beers.
