Have you been tracking down any of the wet, wild and wonderful Fresh Hop beers out there? They just keep on coming this time of year, and that’s just fine by me. Now, Counterbalance Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) is ready to get in on the action.
Coming up next Saturday, March 29th from noon to 9 pm, Counterbalance Brewing is hosting their 2nd annual Fall release party, where they’ll be releasing their 2018 Fresh Hop Ale on draft. Also making its return on that same day is one of Counterbalance Brewing’s early favorites, and the first beer they ever brewed commercially, Bad Wolf Dark Ale.
Here is the full press release from Counterbalance Brewing Company:
Sunshine Into Shadow:
2nd Annual Counterbalance Fresh Hop & Fall Beer Release Party
September 29, 2018, noon-9pm
Counterbalance Brewing Company, Georgetown, Seattle
Welcome the arrival of fall with the dual releases of our 2018 Fresh Hop Ale and the triumphant return of Bad Wolf Dark Ale, back from its summer sabbatical. Outdoor beer garden with games, food from Chavoya’s Hot Dogs, Seattle Sounders vs Colorado Rapids on the tube, and other shenanigans. Additional details will be posted on our Facebook event as we approach the event date: https://www.facebook.com/events/1779681738818044/
The Counterbalance 2018 Fresh Hop Ale is a bright, fragrant ale featuring fresh Willamette Valley Amarillo hops and flavors of lemon, orange, and spice. It’s an ideal accompaniment for a last gasp of summer and the perfect counterbalance to…
Bad Wolf Dark Ale. This category-defying beer was the very first beer we brewed commercially, and we’re excited to bring it back for fall 2018. Bad Wolf is an ale unto itself, featuring a silky mouthfeel, flavors of toffee, cocoa, and a balanced layer of piney hop bitterness. Call it what you want. We just call it a Dark Ale and we love it.
For wholesale customers, pre-orders for 1⁄2 and 1⁄6 barrel kegs of both beers can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Availability is limited so pre-order now and join us on the 29th 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. Counterbalance beers are distributed to bars, restaurants, and retail locations throughout Washington by Vinum Importing & Distributing.

Bad Wolf Dark Ale was the beer that first turned me on to Counterbalance Brewing Company, so I’m happy to see it return. I’m also really looking forward to trying their 2018 Fresh Hop Ale (Amarillo). I’m on a bit of a quest this year to try as many different Fresh Hop Ales as I can get my hands on. I hope you’re all as excited about Fresh Hop/Wet Hop beers as I am.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
