It’s one of those crazy beer news days….Late last night we broke news of Marley’s, but I wanted to follow up with some more info. Here’s a quick photo of the bar area from Marley’s FB page.
Looks like the bar will be opening on Thursday (2/10) . This will be for dinner-only with the lunch menu beginning on Monday. Very few other details to be found on this downtown Bloomsburg Brewery so stay tuned. Word is they’ve brewed several batches already and they’re well on their way.
UPDATE: I spoke with Nick Beaver (one of the owners @ Marley’s Brewery & Grille) and he tells me they will be opening tomorrow (2/10) at 4PM with 5 beers on tap and a full dinner menu. They plan to run four (Kolsch, Irish Red, IPA, Porter) or these original 5 beers full time @ Marley’s and they have the capacity to tap up to 10 currently. The fifth beer (Belgian Wit) is one of their first specialty beers. Here are the beer names & descriptions:
This Kolsch-Style Ale, is light in both body and color. Wheat and Carapils
lend themselves to a light gold almost straw color, will both Perle and
Tettnang hops provide a light hop bitterness and floral aroma. A good light
session beer, great all year round.
OG - 11.2 FG - 2.0 IBUs - 17 ABV - 5.0%
Dog Runner Red-
A medium bodied Irish Red Ale, this beer has a a well balanced sweetness from
crystal malts, with a slight hint of roast at the end of the beer. Fuggle hops
lend themselves to a nice smooth bitterness and almost tea like aroma. An
excellent choice for people wanting more flavor, but not too much.
OG - 13.5 FG - 3.0 IBUs - 35 ABV - 5.6%
Guard Dog Porter-
This full bodied dark Ale, is filled with flavor from Chocolate Malt and Roasted
Barley. Nugget hops provide nice bitterness and flavor, with Fuggle hops

Tire Chaser IPA-
A variation of a West Coast IPA, this India Pale Ale has a nice Copper color,
and a slight caramel flavor from Caravienne Malt. Summit and Amarillo Hops,

Wagging Tail Wit-
A Belgian Style Wheat Beer, this White Ale or Wit, is spiced with Whole
Coriander Seed, Bitter Orange Peel, and pounds of Mandarin Oranges. Light in

yeast still left in the beer. A perfect summer beer, but great year round as

Rope Tug Rye-
The Red Ale is brewed with 100 pounds of Briess Rye Malt, which give it a
