Finally got out to Black Raven after hearing so many great things about them. II had few offerings at various fests and though they solid.

The atmosphere and decor are well done for a production brewery tasting room. The service was great: attentive, friendly, and not overbearing.

Now to the important part... the beer. After hearing so many good things, I went in with high expectations. Unfortunately after plodding through the sampler, I was a bit disappointed. Nothing was drain-pour bad, but I kept finding the same off flavor in at least three of samples.

To be fair, they were out of the Trickster IPA and no seasonal or limited releases were on, and by all accounts that's were BR shines. But judging solely on what was available at the time of my visit, I wouldn't go out of my way for their meager regular line up.

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.
