Tap Handle #99: Baltimore-Washington Beer Works - Raven Special Lager

What can I say about this tap that you can't feast upon with your own eyes? The superlatives just roll off the tongue...awesome, fantastic, great, etc. One of my favorite taps.

Baltimore-Washington Beer Works was founded by Stephen Demczuk, who was a partner in Europe's first beer-of-the-month club, Beer Around the World.  He, along with Baltimorean Jim Seay, German beer importer Wolfgang Stark, and master brewer Hans-Martin Walz of Anker Brewery, crafted The Raven, a beer brewed in the honor of Baltimore's literary genius, Edgar Allan Poe. The Raven is produced in the Black Forest region of Baden-Württemberg. The small town of Nagold is where the Anker Brewery can be found. After brewing for a year in Europe, they began selling in the Baltimore area in 1998 and now distribute to five states and Washington D.C. Raven Special Lager is a German-style amber balancing malt and hops. Recommended food pairings are any spicy foods. Weighted average on is 2.81 out of 5.
