The GOODS from Parallel 49 Brewing Company
Vancouver, BC | Parallel 49 Brewing Company is set to get down and dirty this August with the release of its Filthy Dirty IPA. Brewed with a very cheeky “filthy” amount of hops, this West Coast IPA combines fruity and tropical hop characters for a refreshingly distinguishable beer. Featuring an intensely aromatic hop profile that West Coast IPAs have become known for the Filthy Dirty IPA is brewed with Chinook, Centennial, Simcoe, Citra, and Anthem hops as well as Pale, Crystal, and Carapils malts. Despite its hefty hop flavours, the beer is nothing but clean on the palette thanks to lighter notes of citrus and pine. “West Coast IPAs proudly feature hops and the Filthy Dirty IPA is no different,” said Parallel 49 Brewmaster Graham With, “By utilizing more fruity and tropical hop characters, we’ve created a beer that tastes bold, refreshing, and clean.”

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
