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.
If you’re a fan of barrel aged stouts and porters then you know that Fall can be a trying time for your wallet. Over the past couple of months, I’ve been to several different barrel aged beer releases and, by no means, was I alone at these releases. Most had a line stretching down the street and around the corner with many people in line buying up to their allowed limit.
Well, I hope you haven’t depleted your holiday season craft beer spending limit yet, because Two Beers Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) is pleased to announce the return of Overhang Bourbon Imperial Porter this Friday, December 16th at The Woods taproom.
It may still be Fall, but it sure feels like Winter out there. We’ve already had a few good storms this season, and today is looking pretty stormy as well. At least, however, there’s one positive side to having the cold and wet weather return: Winter Ales.
When the wind and cold returns, most palates crave something a bit thicker, a bit darker, perhaps even a bit spicier. Pike Brewing Company is answering your taste buds’ call with the return of their annual Winter Ale: Pike Auld Acquaintance.
