Heading to Washington Brewers Festival this weekend? Yeah, so are we. So it’s with a certain amount of personal joy that we inform that Black Raven’s Wisdom Seeker Double India Pale Ale is coming back.
Brewed with a multitude of different hops, this beer is a hotly anticipated beer in area. And we would be remiss if we didn’t at least let you know about its return.
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.
A couple of really big asterisks here. Number one, this beer is available in 22 ounce bottles, but there is a 2 bottle per person limit. So if you want more than that, you might want to convince someone to come along and pony up the cash for two bottles. Number two, this beer is super rare, which means it will more than likely sell out pretty quickly. Take our advice and show up early.

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.
