Not easy to find for this out-of-towner.
Nice space, with the serving tanks greeting you upon entering. Stopped in around 2pm on a Sat. and it was mostly empty. Some folks were outside in the garden. After being seated by the hostess, we waited 10 minutes before our server said Hi. After placing our order, the turn-around was great. The beer was good with 6 fulltimers and 3 seasonals; I had both the Hop Explosion and the Porter. I also picked-up a growler of the Pale Ale for later. The food was good, but you did not get alot for the price. I had the pulled pork sandwich that came on a hotdog bun-sized steak roll(about 5 inches long). The way they cut the roll, you don't get much meat and I finished the meal in about 5 minutes. Put it on a kaiser roll and take care of the customer (8.50?!? - come on). That is the reason for the pricey rating. The beer was good and the bartender I talked to was real cool, but I don't see myself eating here again - more of a beer stop if in the area

Up and coming Allentown has this hidden gem on Hamilton Street. Excellent selection of brewery only beers on tap with excellent seasonal beers. The food was decent and service was good. All in all a nice place to swing by and have a brew. If in season give the barrel aged Devious pumpkin a try it's amazing!

A little on the Stuffy and Snobby side. I get the opinion when I am here that theirs is the only opinion that matters. Their beer is good but not great. The food is often overpriced for what you get. I am very happy to pay for a quality meal but that is not what you always get here. Located in the up and coming center of Allentown, virtually no parking.

Went here with my wife and daughter who was checking out a college in the area. We all thought the food was very good, the service was excellent and my IPA and my wife's Wit beer were great. I would definitely recommend this place. It seemed like a very vibrant part of the community.
Editorial: I have been seeking out brew pubs when I'm out of town for the last 10-12 years. We have never been to one that did not have good food (I hope I don't jinx it).

My wife, son and I came here after picking up a case of hopslam in Emmaus. This is a nice place to pick up lunch. Right in the middle of town on hamilton street. After walking through the two sets of double glass doors. We were greeted by cases of hop explosion. Damn shame I didn't have enough money for a case. Anyway a stairwell is kind of hidden to the left of the hosstess desk with a nice dining area to the left and awesome looking bar to the right. Our seats back were we came in in front of the window to the city of Allentown.
Our server was a bit unpleasant but besides being grumpy he was very quick to ask if we needed anything.
Beers were a bit pricey as well as the samples at $10 for six. Brew works is some of the cheapest cases I have seen and for good quality but at the brewpub the seem to charge a bit more.
I will say the is the cleanest brewpub and restaraunt I have ever been in. Very pleased to go to the bathroom and smell potpouri and not stand in a puddle of urine.
The family and I were very happy to come here.
