A Note on This Beer
Did you know that Chinese New Year has an entire day dedicated to celebrating your dog?! Or that in India, they shower monkeys with fresh-picked flowers and mountains of food?
Around the globe, certain animals are sacred and symbolic, and they draw worshipers from near and far.
And for craft fans? There's a covet a winged-symbol that only graces our world once a year!
It’s called Grandfather Raven, and it's an annual gift from the Washington-based Black Raven Brewing crew. Last years vintage is rated a whopping 4.39 on Untappd, and Grandfather Raven is adorned with multiple North American AND Washington Beer Award medals, solidifying its praise-worthy status.
Tell your craft friends you’ve scored this sacred bottle, and you may come home to find they’ve built a shrine in front of your beer fridge dedicated to Grandfather Raven.
Pop open the bottle and pour it into a glass, marveling as the light flickers off its midnight shade. The scent of mocha-drenched espresso arouses your senses while each sip has you diving deeper into its dark chocolate-covered toffee depths. Devilishly smooth, the high-flying ABV sneaks through the sea of blackness, uncovering Bourbon-like caramel and rich cocoa.
With each kiss to the lips, this coveted elixir is like an out-of-body experience of dark delight.
If you wish to experience this years’ Grandfather Raven, grab your stash before it takes flight. Because once it’s gone, to quote the Raven, this vintage will be “nevermore.”
2018 Vintage Rated 4.39 on Untappd; 93/100 on BeerAdvocate
