Nor do you get to slide into cushy leather booths or sit under a mod raftered skylight hung with a Sputnik-worthy midcentury chandelier.

A Brew Lover’s Tour of the Lehigh Valley

Guest Contributorby Guest Contributor August 18, 2014

“Lehigh Valley residents are equally appreciative of good food and great beer. We have farmers who populate the country’s oldest continuously operating open-air farmers’ market and chefs who want a less stressy change of pace. And we’ve got brewers and entrepreneurs who, enticed by all the affordable industrial infrastructure just begging to be rehabbed, want to breathe new life into the historic spaces.”
