I made my first visit to B.R. World Headquarters for their 1st Anniversary party recently. So, while this isn't a typical visit, I did get a feel for the place.

The atmosphere was very nice for a spot in an industrial complex. A comfortable room, with nice tables and chairs, is what you get when you walk in the front door. There is a bar with 6-8 seats and 10-12 taps in the front most spot. Going through a doorway leads to some more tables and, eventually, the brewery.

The entire staff was nice and friendly, despite how busy they were that day. The beers were, as usual for BR, top notch. They had the regular lineup available for pints and growler fills, and special things just for for the party by the glass.

If you're in the area, stop in. If you're visiting the PNW on a vacation or business trip, make a point of getting there, you will not be disappointed.

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.
