New venue serves up craft beer and food

November 12, 2018 by  

Sage Allen Brewery and Grille opened recently in Coopersburg, located in a 1894 Victorian home. The owners, Russell Armstrong and Heather Lloyd, converted the house into a brewery and bar.

The food at the restaurant comes from a permanent truck placed behind the restaurant. The inside has hardwood floors, tables and chairs in the middle, as well as a patio with metal and picnic tables to eat on in the warmer months.

The menu offers appetizers, sandwiches, salads, wings, burgers, and pizza. A popular appetizer is Bavarian Pretzel Sticks with mustard cheddar ale sauce. Appetizers include a hummus board, loaded nachos, chips and salsa, and crab and artichoke dip.

Sage Allen Brewery and Grille is one of the area’s first brew pubs. The bar seats about 14 people and the restaurant 40. Parking is located in the rear of the building.

Lloyd said they wanted to have an atmosphere similar to that of the bar in the TV series ‘Cheers’, where friends meet and do not have to travel to another town. They plan to brew and serve over 10 kinds of beer. The bar will serve cider, wine, sangria, mixed drinks, sweet tea, and soft drinks.

The grille serves crab pizza, bacon scallop pizza, pulled pork sandwiches, fish and chips, and breaded shrimp. Coopersburg has printing services that design menus for restaurants like this.

The Sage Allen Brewery is located on 213 N. Main St, and is open from Thursday through Sunday.
