About Broken Wheel Brewing

A passion for good beer and an appreciation for the process of producing it, has resulted in two young entrepreneurs starting Broken Wheel Brewery at Fresh Catch Bistreaux.

Broken Wheel Brewery is the first commercial craft beer brewery in Central Louisiana. Located in Marksville, the brewery got its name from the hometown’s storied origins.

Jonathan Knoll and Chris Pahl have made the transition from being one of Marksville’s favorite restaurants to a brewpub. After years of learning the secrets to a successful business, Knoll and Pahl realized that their patrons had a thirst for craft beer. The pair took the time to learn how to brew what their patrons like and are turning heads with their Cajun-style beer.

Broken Wheel Brewery regularly has three beers on tap with a fourth seasonal rotating beer, all of which pair well with the classic Cajun fair served at Fresh Catch Bistreaux.
