A popular brewery in Hellertown is making headlines far beyond the Saucon Valley, and for all the right reasons.
BreweriesInPA.com used brewery ratings posted by beer drinkers on the Untappd app to determine which breweries were ranked within its top 10.
With an aggregate score of 3.95 out of a possible five, Lost Tavern tied for the 10th spot on the list with South County Brewing of Fawn Grove, York County.
In addition to its Hellertown brewery and taproom, Lost Tavern Brewing recently opened a second location inside the historic Moravian Book Shop in downtown Bethlehem.
Meanwhile, the Hellertown taproom has become popular as a destination drinking and dining spot thanks to the food trucks it hosts. Live music on weekend evenings and special events are still other draws.
Ultimately, though, it’s all about the beer; a fact that’s reinforced by the business’s name.
The name “Lost Tavern” pays homage to a tavern that existed around the time of Hellertown’s founding in the 1740s. The tavern’s location is unknown, therefore it is considered “lost,” although the beer-drinking heritage of Hellertonians certainly is not.
