Marksville Gets a Shiny New Toy: Broken Wheel Brewery Ribbon Cutting



by Blair "B-Rex" Loup

Late last year Jay, Chuck P., and I discovered the Broken Wheel Brewery in Marksville, Louisiana. Owner, Jonathan Knoll was getting his footing on a couple of brews in the back of the Marksville eatery, Fresh Catch Bistreaux.

After looking around at his brewing equipment and hopeful hop garden, we hit the road back to Baton Rouge wishing Knoll the best of luck. I was pleasantly surprised to run into Jonathan again in Lake Charles when I went home for the Louisiana Winter Beer Festival. Broken Wheel Brewery was a crowd favorite at the festival pouring their Spring Bayou Blonde Ale and a milk stout.

I had a lot of beer that day, but that milk stout kept calling my name. You can try it for yourself at the Broken Wheel Brewery’s Ribbon Cutting this Friday, March 20th at 3pm at Fresh Catch Bistreaux (109 Tunica Drive E., Marksville, LA 71351).

They’ll be pouring their Pachafa Pale Ale, Spring Bayou Blonde Ale, the milk stout, and brown ale at the event. If anyone can show you a good time in Marksville, it’s Broken Wheel.
