[13] Ravenna Brewing Company

Part 2 of our totally not critically acclaimed brewery series: Ravenna Brewing Company!


Ravenna is making exciting beer with a community Focus in NE Seattle.

Tommy, Bud, and Eric hung out and told us the story of Ravenna Brewing Company. We discussed how they landed in their spot, their plans for expansion, and how they got to be making some of the most exciting beer in Seattle.

From the website:

“…So we started a brewery”

We also have an exciting updating on Grant’s Dating Corner!
