Founded by Stephen Demczuk, The Raven was brewed in honor of the great American writer, Edgar Allan Poe, who, through his pen, eloquently expressed himself like no other. Through his exquisite poems, short stories and criticisms, Poe captured the imagination of the world. The Raven is brewed in Baltimore, the home of Poe, in honor of this classic poem. A master of the macabre, Poe is captured in the RavenBeers

From 1843-1848, he wrote 'The Tell-Tale Heart', 'The Black Cat', 'The Pit and the Pendulum' and the prize winning 'The Gold Bug'. In 1845, Poe published 'Tales' and 'The Raven' and 'Annabel Lee', published 2 days after his death on Oct. 9, 1849. The strain of business failures and the tragic death of his wife from consumption led to a nervous breakdown and to his early death in Baltimore on October 7, 1849.
