The Brown Porter is the very first beer ever brewed at the Black Raven Brewery (formerly known as "Batch 1 Brown"). Featuring both the subtle nut flavors and easy drinkability of an English brown ale and hints of deeper coffee tones and the Northwest hop character of a porter. Quickly becoming a true local favorite.

This beer is the first style brewed at the Black Raven Brewery. Featuring both the subtle nut flavors and easy drinkability of an English brown and hints of deeper coffee tones and the hop character of a porter. Available year-round.
