Stop number two on our Bloomsburg adventure. My first time to Turkey Hill.

Awesome looking building from the outside, parking lot was packed. I hear the upstairs is an awesome restaurant but for this visit we stuck with the pub. Brewing area is right inside the door, appears to be just an industrial home brew kit. We got seated at the largest table in the place and sat down to take in our surroundings. Lots of old wood and stones all over the place, two person band playing in the corner, a few TV's behind the bar. My seat was a little uncomfortable as it was essentially a board with no cushion. Quality was pretty good, lots of cool things hanging on the wall, food was top notch, and my beers all came in the correct glasses.

Service was a little hit or miss. Our server was working most of the room so it took awhile to get our drink order in, and ever longer for it to arrive. Once we placed our food order the service got a lot quicker thanks to the other servers picking up the slack. I got the Black and Blue burger and it was cooked perfectly and tasted great. I also got to try some of the buffalo dip and NY pretzels and both were awesome.

Selection was pretty good as well. They had 10-11 beers on, I tried the Helles and the Oatmeal stout and both were pretty good, but nothing earth shattering. I also tried a bit of the Grapefruit IPA and like the others it was good but not great. Overall this place is definitely worth the stop, for the food alone, but don't expect it to blow you out of the water.

Nice looking place. Two floors. Outside seating. Beer was pretty good. Service seemed young and slightly distant. Didn't try the food but would have if I was hungry or looking for a place to eat. Honestly, it's a nice looking place, but I don't know if I'd ever return. Just didn't put any air in my balloon.

I stopped in while in the area on business. The atmosphere is rustic and comfortable and the service was very welcoming.

They offer several different beers including a Pale Ale, IPA, Scottish Ale (on tap and cask), BDSA, Porter and maybe a few others. I love that they have a beer engine. I sampled the IPA & BDSA and had the Pale Ale & cask Scottish Ale. I enjoyed them all. They were to style and well made. I would have enjoyed a little more hops in the PA & IPA but that's probably just my taste.

The Ahi Tuna appetizer was outstanding and the Black & Blue Burger was OK.

All in all I enjoyed the visit and would definitely try it again.

Visited the Turkey Hill Brewing Co. while on business in the Bloomsburg area. The place was impressive from the outside. The inside had that old time rustic look and feel to it. While we were waiting for our table we bellied up to the bar for a few cold ones. I started out with the Barn Dance Blond a nice interpetation of a Kolsch, one of my favorite styles. It was clean and crisp and went down almost too easy. Next up was the What the Helles a golden Helles with a nice spicy hop bite. At the table I had a Journey Man IPA, a decent IPA but nothing to write home about. Overall I give this place a 3.5 rating for the beer. Where it looses points is the food. We expeected much better. I had the salmon which was slightly overcooked but not bad. Two of my partners had the flat iron steak which they too said was over cooked for meduim rare. My fourth partner had the pork steak which he said was as tough as shoe leather. Service was very slow also. If we make it back, it will be for the beer, not the food.

Alongside of, or separate from anyway, some sort of haughty taughty Inn just off the exit. Took me a minute parkinglotside, I had been wondering where, oh, it’s that barn looking building over there, the one with the brewing equipment in the windows, duh. Apparently, whilst renovating the barn this is housed in back in 2010, it collapsed during a wind storm, so they did a complete do over. Does this sound suspect to anyone besides me? Amish mafia cough cough...

Ginormous open A-frame building, with large timber uprights & cross beam rafters around, and plank floorings salvaged, uh huh. Walls of something olive or grey mostly, and the barback wall a brick red. Large arched panel windows on the far wall, and small windows on the walls to both sides with even smaller ones way above them. You also get some good light from the skylight up above. Farm & barn prints and a quintessential ancient Bloomsburg map. Horseshoe coat rack pieces and others along the barback. Drop button lamps along the bar, out over the room and some wall mounted lamps, as well. A dozen and a half tables across the room, including the 4 booths in the center.

“L” shaped wood bar with a wide lip and foot rail up front seating a dozen or so. Shelved sampler glasses on the center of the barback with the tap selections printed on a blackboard above. Horizontal wine rack pieces and numbered & handled 6 beer sampler boxes to both sides, and a flatscreen atop. Counter space holds stacked glassware, and more shelved below.

10 beers on a row of tool handle taps below the bar. Started with a pint of the Lightstreet Porter (on nitro, nothing to it, thinnish, bitter, nothingness, seriously disappointing), and then realized I could do a sampler of 6. And you can choose which ones you want (Epiphany Pale Ale, pleasant hoppiness, good nose; Journeyman IPA, nicely bitter, good hoppiness, solid IPA; What the Helles, solid Hellesness; Group Therapy ESB, buttery not goodness, meh; Midsummer Night Saison, decently sweet and Saisony; Bamboozled in Bruges Belgian Ale, good sour cherry, good as fruit beers go). As such, there were some I didn’t get to (Barn Dance Blonde Ale, Table 28 American Wheat, Belgian Blonde Ale). The Journeyman IPA, What the Helles, & Bamboozled in Bruges Belgian Ale were the best of ‘em, although all the beers were served too cold. Way too cold. Stop it!

And Sunday lunch along the way west. Started with the sesame ginger ahi tuna, served over a bed of spinach with friend wonton noodles. It was good, but there wasn’t much of enough of it. So what else? I opted for the Alaskan BLT (smoked salmon, spinach, tomato, applewood smoked bacon & a cucumber wasabi dressing in a soft wheat tortilla). Okay, the wrap was sturdy but packed with spinach & tomato, and very little of the goods. I was playing ‘where’s Waldo’ on the salmon scene. Came with surprise fries though, so that’s a plus.

Rear room with lighting seating and views of the brewroom below. And downstairs, an “L” shaped wood bar on the far wall with seating for more than a dozen on backed chairs. A row of 10 tool tap handles on stainless steel on the barback, booze & glassware to the sides. A framed piece on the brick wall barback holds blackboards in the center listing tap selections with OG’s, FG’s, ABV’s, and shorty & pint pricing, and flatscreens to the sides over shelved glassware. Buttercup lamps tracing above the bar, drop spots and cool planter post lighting. Slab concrete floorings, and lots of old brick & timber. A dozen high & low mix and match tables across the room, and old farmish equipment about. And another ½ dozen tables or so outside out back out there.

Music, I was digging for a while. Lots of Beatles played (and solo John, Paul & George). I was warm & happy, and then they played George Harrison’s ‘My Sweet Lord’ in a quicker tempo than it should have been. Unacfuckingceptable.

Cool use of barn space, especially the downstairs bar area. Food was tasty but the portions were not all that. In fact, they were less than that. Service served. Beerwise, they have a nice selection, nice range of styles dealt. A couple of them were very good, others fair to decent, and others not so, a bit of everything as that goes. Would like to get another look in on this place as I come through...

Made my way down to Bloomsburg from Hazleton last Saturday. I've been wanting to try this place for a while. We walked in and the place was quite crowed to say the least.

We were seated downstairs since the upstairs was packed.

I ordered up there sampler which came with a few belgians, a stout, an ipa and another which I'm drawing a blank on. They beers were flavorful and complex, the only complaint I have is that the belgiums were lacking on strength compared to what I am used to. I ordered a pint of Fort Wheelers Stronghold Ale which was more of what I was looking for in a Belgian.

Food wise, I ordered up the shroomer a burger on a ciabata roll, with swiss and frieds onions, and a variety of pennsylvnaia mushrooms. It was really good.

All in all this place was a good experience and I would definetely good again.
