Finally: Ravenna Brewing Co.
I have been driving by this place since it opened several years ago and finally dropped by to give it a try. Might also have had something to do with the food truck that day…Swine & Steel. You know there’s going to be some pork somewhere.
Located in what was an auto repair shop it’s become well known for their local brews in a city with close to 70 breweries. My choice this day was the Slice of Life, a sour ale. Interesting flavors…not too tart and a perfect choice when the weather turns hot which was the case the day we visited.
On to the pork offering. Described as Southern BBQ with a Seattle flair…ok the sauce is tomato based and sweet…correct…the bun is a French type roll…not sure about that. I guess that’s the Seattle flair? The pork was nicely prepared and I enjoyed the flair as well. Sides included the bourbon baked beans…nice example and the cheesy jalapeño potatoes…interesting but not my favorite. Overall, a nice food truck option that I’d look for again in the future.
They have nice outdoor seating areas for the warmer days with inside seating for the other, more common, Seattle days.
