Bethlehem Brew Works goes smoke-free
Now this is certainly good news to report. Bethlehem Brew Works' Steelgaarden Lounge has always been a pleasant place to have a beer...when no smokers were present. With such a nice selection of beer to choose from in their lower-level nook, the low ceilings virtually ruined any chance of enjoying your brew. The noise...fine. The dim lighting and close quarters...great. But, the smoke could just kill it. (You probably know my stance on smoking in bars, but smoking in close quarters...fuggeddaboudit!) It's been about 4-6 months since I've been there. There's been some chatter about BBW lately over at Lew Bryson's site and at Beer Advocate. So, it's come up my radar lately and I thought I'd check out BBW's website and see what's going on and plan a good time to pay a visit. I found this news article at the top of their home page! ==================================================================== THE BREW WORKS IS SMOKE FREE!!! On December 15th the Steelgaarden Lounge joined the Brew Works to create a smoke free environment. Wishing everyone a healthy and happy New Year!
