Marleys Brewpub

We were finally able to get into Marley's Brewpub in Bloomsburg.  We walked in for lunch, and came away satisfied. The food was right on par.  We had a chicken cheese steak and ranch chicken wrap, and both filled us up.  I was able to have two beers. The first that I had was their Kolsch.  A good Kolsch is clear, crisp ale that is then lagered.  It portrays grassy qualities with slight bitterness. The beer is typically a great refreshing beer for the summertime.

I had high expectations for this Kolsch, as Mr. Lew Bryson is a fan of the brewer's former Kolsch at the Swashbuckler Brewery at the PA Renassaince Fair.  I was not disappointed. It was cool, clean and collected.  It proved to be a great compliment to my wrap, and was great to drink when walking in from the hot, humid weather outside.

My second beer was the Belgian Pale Ale.  I was really surprised with how good this was.  It has a Belgian yeast spice punch with a strong hop flavor and aroma, without an over powering bitterness. I had low expectations for this one, and it came out great.

Overall, I cannot wait to get back an try some more of their beers- definitely will try their other Belgian styles.
