TPMD – Black Raven Brewery

Went to the Black Raven Brewery and taphouse last night. I tried their porter and scotch ale, both which were totally fine if not exceptional. They do a lot of one offs, cask conditioned and the like, I’ll definitely try to make it there for some of those events. Anyway its great to have a Brewery so close to work, one that I could easily swing by on my ride home. Will definitely return.

So again left a bit late but I wasn’t really pressed for time today. Even though I never caught the weather it turned put to be sunny and warm. I road into Mount…

TPMD – Issaquah Brewhouse

Last weekend I had an ambitious riding trip planned that I had to abort due to a cracked rear rim. You can read the whole story here but a trip to the Issaquah Brewhouse was always part of the plan.  The first time I ever rode to Issaquah I found this brew house and on discovering it was a Rogue outlet it became a feature of any trip that routed through Issaquah. Rogue is one…
