People sometimes get confused about Counterbalance Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor). Based on their name, many people assume they’re located on Queen Anne hill. That’s where you’ll find the counterbalance, one of the steepest slopes in all of Seattle, and definitely the tallest. It increases in elevation by 450 feet in a span of just eight blocks.
Despite their name, however, Counterbalance Brewing is located in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood, right next door to Sound Homebrew supply (503 S Michigan St, Suite B). Founders Jeff Howell and Frank Lawrence selected the name because they both grew up on Queen Anne hill.
