Seattle’s Counterbalance Brewing Celebrates 4th Anniversary

Washington’s Counterbalance Brewing has been helping hold down the industrial Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle for four years now, so help the brewery celebrate its 4th anniversary with four new beer releases on January 25th and 26th. Counterbalance receives a New School endorsement as well; it’s one of those breweries that you don’t hear a lot about outside of the city, but is a consistent mainstay for dependably good to great beers. Check it out soon!

More from a press release:

You’ve been doing a great job on your January cleanse, so join us time for a cheat day or two. We’ll celebrate January 25 & 26 and to thank you for your support, we’ve got FOUR special packaged and draft beer releases: 2019 Big Bada Boom Hazy Double Mango IPA. Our 4th Anniversary ale is packed with a stupid amount of Azacca and Idaho 7 hops and real mango. 16 oz can 4-packs on both Friday and Saturday.

2019 Bourbon Barrel Aged Kushetka Imperial Stout is finally ready and will be released in bottles and for the first time ever, we’ll have it on tap as well. It’s been almost two years since the last one and we’re excited to have it back.

2018 3rd Anniversary Flight Risk Barley Wine will appear in two forms- we’ll have a keg on tap, and a 12-month oak barrel aged version in bottles.

2018 Barrel Aged Big Bad Wolf Dark Ale with dried coffee cherries- we’ve got a couple cases tucked away in the cellar, and it’s time to let them out.

Very limited amounts of all four beers will release both Friday and Saturday, as well as a few 4- packs of all four together. We’ll be joined by Chavoya’s Hot Dogs on Friday, and Theo’s Gyro’s on Saturday. Please come eat, drink, and let us thank you for all your support and commence our 5th year!
