Situated in the middle of what looks like an industrial office complex, Black Raven Brewing appears very out of place. Once inside though, you forget about that because you are greeted by a wonderfully small bar with a few surrounding tables all made of polished wood. Tall tables have what appears to be tree trunks cut to fit as legs and a huge wooden door in the back with a big black raven painted on it. Some stone work on the inside wall complete the upscale rustic feel. It still appears to be a bit of a work in progress but it is still quite intrigueing.

There is not a huge selection of beers they brew but they do a lot of seasonal beers that I'll have to come back for. They at least have a range of beers so anybody can find something they like.

The bartender was very attentive and amicable.

There's no food here aside from some peanuts but you can bring in outside food or you can have Flying Saucer Pizza deliver their Bird of Prey that they developed with the help of Black Raven.

Definitely on the small side but if you're looking for a quiet place to have a beer than this is a great place.

A nice tap house out in a business district in Redmond. The vibe is cool. We stopped by late afternoon on a Friday. Everyone was getting off work, stopping by before heading home for the weekend. The quality of what they have to offer is top notch and well-made. The service was decent, not bad. The only complaint would be the selection, I was hoping for more DIPAs or imperials, but this time of the year is probably not the right time to expect them.

Overall - A recommended place to sit down and have good beer.

Love the Black Raven Brewing Company. The beers are excellent and the service is always awesome. Whoever is working behind the bar, usually two people at the same time, are always extremely friendly and very helpful with any beer related questions.

The taproom itself is in kind of an industrialized location, not uncommon to breweries, so the area isn't exactly aestically pleasing, but who cares, right? The taproom itself is very communal and comfortable and there are free pretzels on every table. They do not serve food, but in the summer months at least there are food trucks parked right outside.

So all together this is a great place to come and grab a beer or two

Nice little place. Had half a dozen regulars on tap and 4 specials. The Triple IPA was very nice and the BA RIS was very smooth. There was a wood fired pizza truck parked in the parking lot which was nice. Place is small with a few tables outside. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Seemed like most of the people there were Microsoft employees. If your are in Redmond area, definitely worth a stop.
