Brought together by a love of and passion for craft beer, a group of pubs, restaurants and breweries in and around Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton have risen to champion the first ever Lehigh Valley Beer Week. The week will feature a variety of craft beer related events across the Lehigh Valley and will run from February 11th to February 17th. Jesse Albertson, a local beer enthusiast and current general manager of Fegley’s Brew Works, first formed the idea. He said that, “I saw the success and community of Philly Beer Week and thought, “Why can’t we do this in the Lehigh Valley?”” This thought process led to the creation of Lehigh Valley Beer Week, a week-long celebration of community, friends, and beer. Jesse met with fellow beer enthusiasts and advocates who jumped at the idea.
The current list of participating breweries, pubs, and restaurants is over twenty and continues to grow. The hallmark of Lehigh Valley Beer Week will be the communication and collaboration of these venues to host a series of craft beer related events. So far, pub takeovers, brew tours, beer tastings, beer dinners, rare beer releases, and a host of other events are already scheduled with more to come.
