    ^^^^^What he said. Just got home.
    Advice: Order your Great Grandfather Raven and another beer of your liking (my choice Raven de Garde) Let Grandfather warm & enjoy second choice first - Grandfather served way too cold - then enjoy.
    Died and gone to heaven :)

    This is exactly what I did.

    Kitty Kat was surprisingly good. Blueberry pop tart filling anyone? Yes.

    The grandfather intermixed with the saison reaffirms Black Raven as Washington's best little surprise.

    I can honestly say that's my favorite Saison. I'm not a huge fan of the style, but I could drink that beer alllllll the time.

    Anyone know what's currently on tap in the taproom?

    Hoping to stop by later this afternoon if I can swing it.

    Hi John,
    Pour Les Oiseaux & Raven de Garde both winners imo.
    Plus their regular lineup of course i.e. Trickster and others not sure what, going by memory.
    They have bottles of Pour Les Oiseaux and Raven de Garde available as well in the cooler next to the back bar.
    Cheers,
    Larry
