To inspire creativity with every sip.
“Bold like a buck & Crafty like a raven”
We created Braven to celebrate those who are Bold & Crafty®.
Artists. Creatives. Entrepreneurs. Risk-takers. Believers.
The Braven is a chimera of two powerful beasts that embody the creative community. The bold buck horns represent the courage to dream daringly. The crafty raven is the talent to manifest concepts into reality. The shield defends creative endeavors from naysayers and doubters. Combined into a single sigil, the Braven emblem is the spirit animal of the creative process.
We are proud to support these incredible arts institutions:
Braven’s beers are available on draft in bars, restaurants, and growler shops and in 12 oz. bottles in grocery and package stores across New York City, Long Island, and Dutchess, Rockland, and Westchester Counties. Use our Beerfinder to see where Braven is sold in your neighborhood.

Here’s an interview we did with Vinepair.com that explains how and why Eric and Marshall started Braven Brewing Company.
Our home is Bushwick, Brooklyn. We’re currently making our beers on a brewery system in New York State and working to build our own brewery right here in Bushwick.
Braven is available on draft in 15.5 gallon and 5.16 gallon kegs and in 12 oz. bottles, six-packs, and 24-count cases.
Sorry, we are not hiring for any positions at this time. Please do not send us your resumes.

While we are proud to be able to work with our current sponsorship partners, we are unfortunately unable to sponsor additional events at this time.
