Though Black Raven falls into the "brewery with a tasting room" category (it's not a genuine brewpub), it's more comfortable than many similarly organized breweries in our region. They do have a few tables amid oak barrels near the brewery garage bay in the rear. And in summer there are outdoor tables behind the brewery in the parking lot. But most of the place has the outward appearance of a small pub or restaurant with lit candles on the tables and refined decor. They just don't have a kitchen and offer no more than snacks to eat. The popular option is to call for pizzeria delivery.

The bar offers six regular taps and a seasonal, plus three guests and some wine. They serve imperial pints, perform glass rinses (a sophisticated gesture though I'm not sold on the idea), and tap a firkin on Weds. nights. They brew the more popular styles with the occasional Belgian or barrel aged ale and a filtered version of their hefeweizen brewed to the kristallweizen style. Quality varies but is generally of merit, especially the IPA. Overall, a friendly spot for a pint or growler and very popular with the locals. Worth a visit if you're on the east side. (1,159 characters)

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. (524 characters)

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 (676 characters)

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. (402 characters)
