WILK Friday BeerBuzz - 18 Jan 2013 Marley’s Pack Dog Peanut Butter Ale w/Mark Braunwarth

WILKFridayBerbuzz15The Friday BeerBuzz team took a few weeks to recover from the holidays, and we’ve enjoyed some really good beers; but with the new year upon us, it was time to bring back a local guest and sample some local beer.

We’ve followed along as rumors turned to reality and Marley’s Brewpub opened it’s doors in Bloomsburg, PA, and in Feb 2012 we welcomed their brewmaster Mark Braunwarth into the studio to sample some great beers.  Mark featured his Tire Chaser IPA and we all had a great time talking and sampling with Mark.

Jump forward to 2013 and a lot is going on at Marley’s.  The brewpub has bumped up to 10 taps and the food menu has grown.  Marley’s has seen an increase in traffic and they have grown to be one of the premier pubs in Bloomsburg.  Of course it helps that their variety, quantity and quality of beer has grown too, so today was a perfect day to check back in with Mark & sample some of his new brews.
Mark was nice enough to being in his new Pack Dog Peanut Butter Ale today, and before you start thinking that peanut butter and beer don’t belong in the same sentence together, try this beer.  Don’t let the ingredients fool you.  This is a beer loaded with flavor and complexity and yes the peanut butter is there.  I’ve always liked how Thai food mixes peanuts and spiced food, and while this beer isn’t spicy, the blend and balance of bitter to peanut butter is spot on.

Mark also brought in what is perhaps one of my all-time favorite Marley’s beers…Dirty Dog Dubbel w/Sour Cherries.  If you love beers that use Belgian yeast then this beer is a classic Dubbel.  If you love a tart or sour beers, then this beer is for you.  Dirty Dog Dubbel has 60-pounds of sour cherries in each batch and the flavor shines through the sweetness of the Belgian-style dubbel.  This is a wonderful beer, and one I hope becomes a regular at Marley’s.

Be sure to take a ride down the road to 18 W Main St in Bloomsburg and check out these beers for yourself…and while you’re there, be sure to sample some of Mark’s others brews as well.


hank you to Mark Braunwarth from Marley’s, Nancy, John & Joe for yet another

fun Friday.
