People are sometimes confused by the location of Counterbalance Brewing Company. Based on the name most locals assume, understandably, that they would be in or near the Queen Anne neighborhood. They are not. Counterbalance is, in the West end of Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood. They went with the Counterbalance name because that’s where founders Frank Lawrence and Jeff Howell grew up.
Now that you know where they are, why not come for a visit this weekend and help them welcome the return of Fall? Coming up this Sunday the 24th, Counterbalance Brewing will host a release party for their Oktoberfestbier and Fresh Hop Ale. Come join them for these two new releases while watching the Seattle Seahawks beat the Tennessee Titans.
Here is the full press release from Counterbalance Brewing Company:
Counterbalance Fresh Hop & Oktoberfest Beer Release Event
September 24, 2017
12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Counterbalance Brewing Taproom

We’ll release our 2017 Fresh Hop Ale featuring Yakima Valley Simcoe hops and the 2017 Oktoberfest
märzen lager. Both will be on tap with growler fills available. Doors open at noon, Chavoya’s Hot Dogs
onsite and Seahawks on the t.v. for 1:00 p.m. kickoff. All ages are welcome. Weather permitting, we’ll
have an outdoor beer garden and games for all ages in the lot.
Fresh Hop ales and Oktoberfest celebrations are the perfect excuse to spend a late September Sunday
afternoon with friends, sharing delicious beers, watching football, eating hot dogs and playing games.
Join us to sweep out the last of summer and bring on the fall!

firstname.lastname@example.org. Availability is limited so pre-order now and join us on the 24th to get
your first taste!
Counterbalance Brewing Company, owned and operated by Jeff Howell and Frank Lawrence, opened its
doors and launched wholesale distribution in February 2015. Taproom is located at 503 South Michigan
Street in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood. Counterbalance beers are distributed to bars, restaurants,
and retail locations throughout Washington by Vinum Importing & Distributing.
Fresh Hop beers are popping up everywhere about now, which is expected this time of year. However, I think this is the first release this year of a Simcoe Fresh Hop Ale. Simcoe is one of my favorite hops, so I’m going to have to check this one out. I’m also a big fan of the Oktoberfest/Märzen style, so I’m eager to try their Oktoberfest as well. Also, as noted above, if you get hungry during the game Chavoya’s Hot Dogs will be there serving up delicious dogs from their little red cart. Come down to the South end this Sunday for a day of good beers, good food and Seahawks football.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
