Very much meh. Old school brewpub vibe. Bartender was very helpful. Draft list was inaccurate, but at least that scored me an extra free tick. Food was not good, not bad. Beers were not great. Drinkable, but, none good, lots of minor flaws (none major). Flight of 6 + pierogies for $23. Not worth a trip out of your way.
A huge and neat space in the middle of downtown. No parking though. Service was decent but not really beer focused. Selection was large but flight was a bit pricey and beer was not pleasant. Not a great stop.
I actually visited this place on July 2nd. The beer selection was good and the food was good. The noise, however, was incredible You could not talk to the person across the table from you without shouting.
For some reason I’ve wanted to visit this place for some time. The photos looked so cool. But the place has a very tired feel (unlike the town, which I expected to feel tired but was instead quite vibrant). The beers were all average or less than that. The appetizer plate we shared was flat out gross -- frozen, and plated lazily. The friendly waitress was a saving grace. Won’t likely return. (Brewery #667)
Ambiance: Cool place in downtown Bethlehem. From the exterior it is another non descript old brick building, but has the Fegleys symbol painted on the exterior. The interior looks huge compared to the exterior with a long bar, tables running the length of the building and a second level with more additional seating. In between the two levels, they had their brewing equipment encapsulated in a room of its own.
Service: For as busy as it was, they had plenty of staffing. The bartenders were prompt and knowledgeable.
Selection: They had about 10 in taps going, 6 of which were flagships beers and a decent array of various styles. Unfortunately of the 4 beers that I had that night, none got rated above a 3.5/5 or worth their prices.
Food: I had a really nice buffalo meat burger that was cooked well and a decent value.
Value: I thought my food was reasonably prices but thought that the beers (for their quality) could have been about a dollar cheaper than they were.
Overall: After going to both locations of Bethlehem and Allentown...I liked the location of Bethlehem better but liked the beers in Allentown better.
I used to be a big fan of this location. It’s been slipping quite a bit. I don’t know if it’s years of turn-over or what, but the staff is far less familiar with the beer than when I had gone in there when it first opened. The food has probably suffered the most. Today’s meal for instance was less than flattering, my wife’s salad had celery in it! As a chef, I would never include that in a salad, it’s cheap, and the price isn’t. The beers although nice are really jumping up in price as well. Probably not going to frequent it as much anymore. You can get a better deal elsewhere.
