Suggestion: Bethlehem Brew Works

Postby Spirko » Mon Aug 01, 2011 7:19 pm

The Bethlehem Brew Works at Main St & Broad St in Bethlehem, PA is a great choice for Views & Brews. There are several nice walks/hikes within a few minutes drive. I've picked 3. Maybe one of them can be used for the Allentown Brew Works.

Here's a Google Map of the area with the hikes marked: http://tinyurl.com/43g9kqn

Hike 1: Walking Purchase Park - Wooded nature preserve with multi-use trails (mountain bike and walking). Bikers here tend to be careful and wait for me to step aside before they go past. Park at the top or bottom of the hill (see map). Get the trail map and choose your poison. http://www.bikevmb.com/trail/walking-purchase-park-salisbury

Hike 2: Lehigh Canal Path - Rails2Trails style dual-use path along the Lehigh River. Park anywhere on Sand Island (River St) and walk around the island or out-and-back as far as you want.

Hike 3: The ambitious can leave a car near the Brew Works and go to Monocacy Park. A trail goes out the south end of the parking lot and follows the Monocacy Creek all the way to the Lehigh River. Walk uphill at Union Blvd for easy access to the Brew Works or walk through the Colonial Industrial Area and uphill at Main St (near Church St).

Happy Trails,
-Jeff

Great stuff but don't kill yourself on the hikes. 1 per pub is fine for now!

For some of my local area, I know more hikes than brew pubs. That'll change as I get farther from home. It would be nice to have one town-park-like experience and one nature-preserve-like experience for each brew pub.

I agree, but I'll take 1 per pub for starters.
