Our Community

 

“May your troubles be less and your blessings be more,
and nothing but happiness come through your door”

~ Irish Proverb

Our belief is that when you support the entire community, the community can grow and thrive. We all share a common goal — to build and achieve limitless possibilities. Our goal of reaching out to the community and supporting other businesses and organizations is achieved through our monthly Charity Event called “The Angels’ Share “.  Through these monthly events, we are able to help each organization be heard while supporting them with a charitable donation.

Join us select Wednesdays to enjoy delicious food and entertainment while supporting these local charities.  We’ve found that a little bit of kindness goes a VERY long way.  

 

the origination of the Angels’ share

When whiskey is distilled, it is clear like vodka. The deeper colour and highlight flavours are imparted by aging the liquor in casks. Originally, every distillery had its own barrels from oak. As the industry has matured, Bourbon, Sherry and Port cask have been used in different order, combinations and time periods — making each final product much more complex and exciting.

As the cask imparts flavour to the whiskey, some of the whiskey gets absorbed into the cask, and some evaporates and escapes into the storage warehouse — creating a rich atmosphere and odour.  The part that escapes is known as “The Angels’ Share”, and often results in 5% of the whiskey disappearing from the barrels each year.

Recently, even beer has been aged in used whiskey casks to impart a new flavour to the beer. Innis and Gunn from Edinburgh has been wildly popular at the Red Stag, especially when Guinness is floated on top to create or “Black Scot”!  Now, whiskey is poured back into those same casks (like the Jameson “Cask Mates”) to add yet another layer to the flavour.

Celtic Cultural Alliance

Since 1988, Celtic Cultural Alliance (CCA) has been hosting the Celtic Classic Highland Games and Festival in Bethlehem each September.  Our Owner, Neville Gardner, is one of the original founders of this festival — its mission based on bringing the Celtic Heritage to the Lehigh Valley.  This internationally known celebration of all things Celtic has been the foundation upon which CCA has been built. Building on this rich history, CCA has continued to expand its presence in Bethlehem and beyond. With educational programming presented throughout the year, both for school age audiences and adult groups, CCA has continued to further its goal of preserving and promoting Celtic culture. 

 

Historic Bethlehem

Bethlehemwas founded on Christmas Eve in 1741 by the Moravians (an old-world Protestant denomination), and is known as “The Christmas City”, hosting an array of holiday events, unique outdoor dining and boutiques, and popular festivals that entice tourists from around the world.  

Bethlehem lies in the core of the Lehigh Valley, with McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub and Donegal Square in the heart of the historic downtown area.  The Christmas City has grown beyond its 18th Century roots to boast two of the trendiest and most energized downtowns in the region, the Historic and Southside Shopping Districts, as well as the Steelstacks peforming arts venue. Each of these sections blossomed at different times in the city’s development and each contains areas recognized under the National Register of Historic Places.  

In July 2006, Money magazine placed Bethlehem as number 88 on its “Top 100 Best Places to Live.”  The walkable downtown certainly offers plenty to see and do year-round. Lively restaurants and cafes, boutique-style shopping, preserved Moravian buildings, and diverse music festivals make Bethlehem a great place to be for an afternoon, or to spend an entire weekend.

The Downtown Bethlehem Association (DBA) is a council of The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce and serves to revitalize, rehabilitate, promote and advance downtown business areas within the city of Bethlehem.

The DBA organizes over 100 events a year, to drive foot traffic into Bethlehem’s Historic and Southside Shopping Districts.  We are proud members, as well as part of the leadership team, for this community based organization.
