3fourths (1569) Boulder, Colorado | July 24, 2007| Updated January 22, 2013
Newly opened, only a few weeks or months. Modern metal and wood design, with a green light table bar that hurts my eyes. Better beer selection than the Bethlehem location since the brewer is focusing on this newly-opened location. On tap was the Hop Explosion and witbier + others I can’t remember. Overall a nice place, a little too much like a club, but decent enough for a good beer or two.
Stopped here on the way north from VA to NJ...was looking for some decent grub and good beer. Although I’d been here before...it had been awhile...but I remembered this place (hard to find good food/craftbeer spontaneously while driving long distance). I immediately ordered a flight...and then another...and possibly a 3rd (had to taste "all" of their beers...right?). Overall I would say their beers were good to very good with a couple of standouts...but overall as group I wouldn’t say this is a must stop for a craftbeer traveler. What definitely helps though is the quality of their food...very good...so for our needs that night...this place absolutley met & probably exceeded our needs.
Stopped by on Saturday around 2pm. Not busy at all. 10 beers on the beer menu but they were out of 2 of them. Located right in the center of lovely Allentown. Food was good. I loved the garlic on all the vegetables!
I stopped in on a Thursday night (martini night!). It has long interior space with high ceilings and two levels, with a trendy and modern decor. The surface of the bar is internally illuminated, which is pretty cool (except for rating appearance). The bar also had two HD TVs which was nice for watching the NCCA Tournament. The crowd seems to be a good mix of locals and profressionals over 30. They had 8 or so beers on tap, some of which were different from the Bethlehem location. The two I had were solid and enjoyable. They also have a small but nice selection of micros in the bottle, including Two Hearted, Siberian Night, Stone IPA, Chimay, etc. I ordered some Honey Mustard wings which were excellent. Service was good as well. I did not go to the downstairs bar. I liked this place a lot, and will definitely return.
Stopped in here for dinner after taking the kids to the Crayola factory in Easton. We drove through a rather rough neighborhood before getting here, which made us worry a bit, but the place itself is in a nicer part of town. This is a rather large working brew pub with the fermentors and brewing equipment visible from the seating area. It has a nice large bar and comfortable seating. It gets loud inside, but thats to be expected in a place like this. The crowd was mixed with some locals, happy hour crowd, and families. The service was excellent. It was a very busy Saturday night, yet our server gave us a lot of time talking about the beers and menu. His knowledge of both was very extensive. I was impressed. The food was pretty good and there were a lot of choices including some traditional German offerings alongside brewpub fare. The beers were also good. They had about 8 different selections on their sampler tray and all were solid. We finished up our meal with a bottle of the bourbon barrel aged Insidious. Very good beer! Overall, I enjoyed going here. The food and beers are both above average. Stop in if you can.
Ambiance: This place is solid in the middle of a sketchy downtown area. The exterior is nice looking but the interior has the feel of a laid back upscale place. They had a nice long bar that could easily eat 25+ partons and plenty of tables around and upstairs. They had their brewing equipment up by the front and along the one wall, which always adds to the place.
Service: Decent, Efficient and the bartender was knowledgeable about the beers they had on tap.
Selection: They had a pretty nice selection on tap with about 10-11 in hours beers on tap plus another 50+ bottle too. They are the brewers of Fegleys and had 6 flagships on tap plus several more in house exlusives that don’t get bottled.
Value: Decent prices, nothing too expensive but for the quality, could have been argued to been a dollar cheaper in some cases.
Overall, cool place to go to, great setting and decent enough beers.
Was pleasantly surprised with this place not knowing what to expect before going. Nice new building downtown with a clean, modern styling. Service was pretty good, but it was hard to get the bartender’s attention. Good variety of house beers to try. Sampler tray lets you try 6 beers for a good price, but you have to get the 4 main offerings leaving only 2 to choose from the other offerings. Didn’t try the food, but the beers were pretty good and worth the visit.
Nice brewpub, good selection of rotating beers and nice pub food.. loved the pretzel and ribs!

Took a trip here over the weekend. The place has a neo modern look and feel to it, and the crowd seemed to be on the upscale side of things, fairly well dressed with trench coats and whatnot. We sat in the cozy upstairs area and had a great view of the bar below. The beer selection was 8 strong, and all were well above average, with several being outstanding, including the Hop Explosion, porter, and wit. The food was absolutely delicious. The bruschetta and meatloaf were the best I have ever had, bar none. Service was great, and I felt bad that our server had to go up and down the stairs so many times. This is a top notch place that I will make a point of returning to at least bimonthly. Well worth a trip.
