    South Bethlehem: Craft Beverages

    The Southside Arts District is on a fast track to becoming the craft beverage district of the Lehigh Valley. This holiday season, gift yourself a tour of the unique flavors created by the skill and passion of our local beverage crafters, all within the comfort and familiarity of South Bethlehem’s small-town atmosphere.


    Country Club Brewing 323 Pierce Street

    Country Club Brewing Company offers beers brewed on location which are hearty but balanced and include Stouts, IPAs, Lagers, Sour Beers, and more. Brewer Mike Kromer personally recommends their Coconut Falls Imperial Stout, which has won accolades for “Best Dark Beer” and “Best Overall Beer” for its rich profile of toasted coconut, coffee, vanilla, and bourbon flavor.


    F&A Grog House 117 East 3rd Street

    F&A Grog House boasts a whopping selection of 52 beers on tap. If you are ambitious enough, you can take on the Grog House 52 Challenge to win a t-shirt and beer bragging rights. But you have to try their house-made grog!

    Grog is a fragrant alcoholic beverage made with rum, water, sugar, fruit and/or a variety of spices such as cinnamon. The drink is typically served hot, great for the fall and winter weather! F&A Grog House offers a rotating seasonal grog.


    Social Still Distillery 530 East 3rd Street

    Social Still Distillery sources local corn, wheat, rye, barley, and other grains produced by small family farms to distill into premium small-batch spirits using a traditional pot still on location in Bethlehem. One of their best whiskeys is their Sasquatch Vanilla Maple Bourbon, which is infused with Pennsylvania maple syrup and vanilla beans to produce a sweet, woody, and smooth flavor.


    Five Maidens Cider Company 327 South Polk Street

    Five Maidens Cider Company is co-owned by longtime friends Brian Williams and Andrew David. The cidery opened its doors in August of 2021 and hosts a family-friendly tasting room offering quality house made craft ciders with profiles ranging from sweet to dry, and with a complexity of flavors and varieties. Their Cider- Donut Cider is a crowd favorite for folks who want to enjoy a multidimensional beverage with sweet apple notes, balanced with flavors of brown sugar, spiced caramel, and vanilla aroma.
