Boom! Nothing really more to say than that. Well that and Guy Fawke day is coming this Monday, so Black Raven Brewing is celebrating it by releasing a beer.
Gunpowder Plot Porter as it was named last year is back again, to remind you that darkness isn’t just associated with Halloween.
Brewery Description of Gunpowder Plot Porter
Oak barrel aged porter with bourbon, chocolate and coffee. Poured on nitro, taproom only, no growlers. Celebrate Guy Fawkes day with a glass.
Look for this and other Black Raven beers to be featured at their taproom. Sorry but no growlers or bottles to go of this.
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.
