Here we go again. It’s that time again when Black Raven announces another in the limited edition series of releases. This time around it’s the return of their local ‘Pliny the Younger’ equivalent, Wisdom Seeker Double India Pale Ale.
Back by popular demand (and because the brewers have drank all their secret stash), the Wisdom Seeker Double IPA is the latest seasonal release from Black Raven Brewing. This big and bold IPA is brewed in the American Double IPA style.
Featuring a large cast of hop varieties stitched together to create a big hop flavor and finish.
Malt: 100% base ESB malt
Hops: Nugget, Chinook, Centennial, Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra, Summit
As with most of the brewery’s releases this will be only available at the brewery (and maybe some select dedicated pubs) so you might want to head in soon!
Ravens have long been held in high esteem by brewers, particularly in the British Isles. A famous London brewery once had a tame “mascot” raven named “Joey” that was thought to bring the brewery good luck. Many years ago while home brewing, our brewer/owner came across an old photo in an online stock photo database entitled “Brewer with tame raven”. That photo was the inspiration for continuing the mystical brewery–raven connection, hence the Black Raven Brewing Company. This photo is now used on the home page of the Black Raven Brewing Company website.
Ravens are common birds in the North Cascade mountain range of western Washington. Black Raven Brewing Company is located in the foothills of the North Cascade mountain range. It is important for us to be a local brewery that puts focus on sourcing Washington grown and produced ingredients. As such, we felt that our brewery name and image should be tied to our state.
