The Raven Beer —aka Baltimore-Washington Beer Works— threw an open house for its fans and loyal customers, 6 December 2014, at Peabody Heights Brewery, in the Charles Village neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland.
Baltimore native Stephen Demczuk is the brand's principal owner. His flagship beer, Raven Special Lager, was first brewed in the U.S. in 1997, under contract at Clipper City Brewing Company, another Baltimore-area brewery. In 2013, Demczuk moved all production to Peabody Heights, under contract, where he added other beers, all Edgar Allen Poe-themed.
