Did you have a good weekend? Partake in a little thing called Oktoberfest? No? Well we have something that might cheer you up.
Released last week, Black Raven has a new, and we mean new, beer release at the pub.
The Schwarzeit Black Pilsner, as it called, is Black Raven’s Fall lager. Brewed as a follow up to their Hochzeit Pilsner, this beer is the breweries best interpretation of a seasonal gateway beer. Confused? Here’s what the brewery had to say about their release.
Brewed with traditional Czech grown and malted barley for an authentic European malt flavor. Domestic and European hops provide a balanced hop bitterness and flavor. This lager has all the darkness of a stout but without the intense coffee flavors associated with stout ales.
A special note to you hoarders and beer traders this beer will be taproom only.
So stop reading this and get over to the brewery for a taste, schooner, or pint!

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.
