Marley's And Me

Bloomsburg, PA
After we left the Red Mill Bargain Barn, we drove around for a while looking for a place to eat.  A lot of the restaurants we stopped at were closed, which turned out to be a lucky break because it allowed us to find this place.

Marley's has a really cool vibe.  Our waiter was a very chill and funny dude who mentioned that he also works as a stand-up comedian.  There's indoor and outdoor seating, and an extensive menu.  Good people, good atmosphere, good beer and good food - what more could anyone ask for?

This is Marley's Purgatory Lager, from their head brewer Kyle Kalanick.  I know nothing about craft beer other than that I like to drink it, so this description is straight from the website.  This is a hybrid American Lager with a clean malt taste featuring biscuit and toasted flavors, finished with generous amounts of the Falconer’s Flight 7C’s blend of hops. Expect fruity, spicy, and earthy notes for a complex finish.  It was very good.

If a loaded baked potato could have sex with a plate of nachos, I imagine that one of them could give birth to something like this.  The horseradish aioli, pepperjack cheese and corned beef blend together perfectly with the seasoned waffle fries.

Last, but not least, I ordered the cheesesteak.  It was delicious, but I think I was too quick to make my decision.  When I got home, I saw dozens of other incredible looking things on the restaurant's Instagram page.  I'm definitely going to have to come back and try a few of them.
