It all began with his Imperial / Double India Pale Ale Wisdom Seeker, before he moved onto other releases like Coco Jones Coconut-infused Porter.
But the brewery hasn’t stopped with beers with Coconut or similarities to a certain beer from Santa Rosa, California. In fact the brewery has bottled up a Belgian-style Saison, with a touch of Brett’ (brettanomyces). So should anything that they release in a 22 ounce format be unexpected? Precisely.
Which is why we are happy to nudge you back to the brewery, for their release of BeakTweaker Citrus India Pale Ale.
More on BeakTweaker India Pale Ale
The BeakTweaker is Black Raven's popular seasonal IPA creation. Built on a firm base of barley and rye malts, the BeakTweaker features bold citrus flavors and aromatics. A bright bitterness combines with citrus hop characteristics accented by the addition of black lemon, orange peel and lemon peel.
Stop by the brewery this Saturday, to pick up a pint or bottle of BeakTweaker, from noon (12 PM) to close (10PM).

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.
