Seattle, WA (August 2016)—Belgian Golden Strong Ale release and Ales For Animals event August 13, 2016
Counterbalance Brewing Company will be holding a combined beer release and fundraising event at the brewery Saturday, August 13, from 2-9pm. The beer, a Belgian Golden Strong Ale (8.5% abv), is a radiant golden color with effervescent carbonation, spiced honey, orange and stonefruit flavors, and complex yeast character. The single-batch release will be available while it lasts by the glass and for growler fills at the brewery, as well as in retail and wholesale kegs.
Ales for Animals is a benefit for Vet Techs Without Borders, a local organization whose mission is to improve animal welfare worldwide by connecting volunteer veterinary support staff to organizations that need their help. VTWB is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 registered organization based in Seattle, WA. Representatives of VTWB will be on-hand at the brewery all day providing information about their work, raffling prizes, and enjoying great beer. Counterbalance Brewing Company will donate a portion of beer sales for the day to VTWB as well, and the Mobile Mayan food truck will be serving food all day.
