We teamed up with Country 107.1 & 98.3 Star FM to bring you the Chart Topper Espresso Stout, brewed using locally sourced espresso from Smoking Gun Coffee Roasters. Bold coffee flavour compliments the rich, malty body of this dark, warming winter beer.
“We were blown away by the success of our last collaboration with Country 107 and Star FM so doing another one was a no brainer,” said Paul Sweeting, Owner & Operator of Ravens Brewing Company, “Ravens has always been a community minded brewery and getting the chance to include a local coffee roaster in this beer as well made perfect sense. It’s a true community collaboration that also gives back to the community in a meaningful way.”
Partial proceeds from the sale of this beer will go to benefit Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.
Chart Topper Espresso Stout is available December 3rd!
This month we are introducing a new beer into our seasonal line with the Equinox Dry Hopped Pale Ale. Equinox is a well hopped pale ale that balances a crisp body with lots of dry hop aroma. A low IBU does not mean that this beer is lacking in hops with extensive dry hop additions Equinox benefits in the form of huge citrus and tropical fruit aromas. Lime, passion fruit and pithy orange can all be found. Equinox Dry Hopped Pale Ale is a beer hop fans won't want to miss.
Ravens Brewing Company brought home two awards at the 2018 BC Beer Awards this past Saturday, October 20th.
Coming in 3rd Place in the American Blonde Ale category was our Golden Ale. The Golden was the first beer we ever brewed and we brought it back as a seasonal brew this year.
Coming in 1st Place in the Smoke and Wood Aged Beers category was our Clayburn Smoked Scotch Ale. The Clayburn was the first beer Head Brewer Dan Marriette brewed at Ravens, way back when he was just an Assistant Brewer here. Going back even further, it was based on one of his old home brew recipes. It’s been a long journey for this beer and we couldn’t be happier to see it take home the gold.
We are very proud of both of these beers and it’s nice to know that other people like them as much as we do! We are looking forward to bringing them back in the future.
The Hot Chocolate Porter is coming back! The holiday favourite makes it’s return early this year. It will be available in 650ml Bottles and on Tap at the brewery on October 26th. Look for it at your favourite liquor store.
On Saturday October 27th we’re hosting a spooky Halloween themed Paint & Sip Art Class at the brewery. Each ticket includes a flight of Ravens beer and a 2 hour art class, at the end of which you get to take home a painting of your very own! Tickets are on sale now! Get them here.

An old classic has undergone a bit of a facelift. Our English Dark Mild has a new look and a new name. Say hello to Old Familiar English Dark Mild! We wanted to give this beer a name that represented its character. It’s like an old friend, a soft blanket on a rainy day; warm, cozy, familiar. It also sounded very British. So British, in fact, that it could be the name of your neighbourhood pub. Now Available in 473ml Cans.
Andromeda Galaxy IPA is making its long awaited return! This beer was brewed using a whole lotta Galaxy hops giving it a smooth, juicy flavour with just a bit of bitterness on the finish. We’re very excited to be bringing this beer back. It will be available in 473ml cans and on tap.
Ravens Brewing presents the latest entry into our Sour Series, Mórrígan Stone Fruit Sour. Brewed with Apricots, Peaches, & Plums, Mórrígan is a lightly tart, refreshing sour ale loaded with juicy fruit flavours. It is available in 650ml bottles and on tap.
Excitebeer (4% abv) is a dry-hopped sour wheat ale with the following description:
Excitebeer is a refreshing and tart beer. A lightly soured beer with lemony-citric fruit sharpness and very little hop bitterness. An excellent introduction to soured beers and the perfect beer to pair with summer.
Excitebeer will be available on Friday July 20th at both Ravens and Doan’s, and in local bars and private liquor stores starting next week.
Abbotsford has a long, rich history as a food producing community. We want to pay respects to the agricultural roots in our city. Our West Coast Pale Ale is brewed using 100% Abbotsford grown hops. It's our small way of paying tribute to the history and traditions of the community we are a part of.

We'd like to introduce you to all of the members of out fantastic team! Over the next few weeks we'll introduce you to everyone on the team, from the people who pour your flights for you to the people who toil tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure every batch of beer is brewed, packaged and shipped properly.

Although, you may have caught a glimpse of him running up and down the brew house stairs on occasion.
