Chock one up for the Eastsiders!!!

As first reported by the Washington Beer Blog, the Eastside's newest brewery Black Raven took home the coveted championship at West Seattle's famed Beveridge Place Pub's (BPP) Hoptoberfest.

Every October, BPP's owner Gary sink and staff begin a month long elimination tournament to decide their customers' favorite Washington IPA and the much coveted House IPA tap for the next year. This year the three finalists were Black Raven's Trickster IPA, Point Defiance IPA from Tacoma's Harmon Brewing and Boundary Bay IPA from Bellingham; the perennial champion having won the last 4 years in landslide fashion.

Not only does this validate Black Raven's Trickster IPA as a mighty fine beer, it nets the brewery quite a significant guaranteed sales account as BPP is one of Seattle's most prominent beer bars.

If you have yet to try the Trickster or any of their beers, be sure to head to the BPP or to the brewery itself tucked away off Willows Road in Redmond.
