The GOODS from Parallel 49 Brewing Company
Vancouver, BC | With summer just around the corner, the team at Parallel 49 Brewing Company has been busy bottling their thirst-quenching brews for patio season 2014. Welcome summer! Adding another craft brew to their seasonal lineup, the East Vancouver brewery is excited to introduce their newest fruity flavour, Tricycle, a refreshing lager blended with ruby red grapefruit juice.
Along with Tricycle, Parallel 49 will be bringing back some craft beer fan-favourites including Banana Hammock, a hefeweizen brewed with wheat, Pilsner malt and German hops with aromas of banana and cloves. And their much-anticipated Belgian style Witbier, Seedspitter, which boasts an effervescent watermelon aroma and crisp dry finish. The craft brewery has also brewed a lager version of their year round Hoparazzi, making it crisp and refreshing for those long, hot summer days in the sun.
“We always get excited about launching our seasonal beer,” said Graham With, head brewmaster at Parallel 49, “Nothing beats sipping on a cold craft beer on a hot summer day and our line-up of seasonal brews are crisp and refreshing.” Details after the jump…

PRESS & Accolades
“The Parallel 49 Brewing Co. opened on Triumph Street a year ago, and has bubbled up as vigorously as the 30 or so weirdly named beers from its six 5,000-litre and eight 10,000-litre tanks. Weird? How about Banana Hammock? Salty Scot? Lost Souls? Hoparazzi? Ugly Sweater? Schadenfreude? The latter word refers to the pleasure in seeing others fail. That certainly wouldn’t apply to Anthony Frustagli, Nick Paladino, Mike Sleeman and Scott Venema, who own the St. Augustine’s restaurant and craft-beer mecca, and Michael Tod and Graham With who joined them to found Parallel 49.” – Malcolm Parry, The Vancouver Sun
“It’s always exciting to see a new craft beer maker pop up in Vancouver; it’s even more exciting to see a brewery push boundaries, take risks and create new and interesting flavour combinations. Expect to see bold choices coming from Parallel 49 in the future.” – Ryan Tessier, Vancity Buzz
“Having an understanding of the science of brewing has almost certainly enabled Parallel 49 to achieve consistency in its product, even with the brewery in a state of near-constant expansion.” – Jan Zeschky, The Province
