The Slickly Branded Brewery Within a Brewery That Produces Delicious IPAs

The Craft Beer Atlas of Vancouver will keep you informed not only on where your beer scene is going but also on where it has been. We’ve plotted local tastings rooms, restaurants with extensive tap lists, craft beer-friendly liquor stores, and fascinating brew-centric points of interest on a zoomable map that functions as well on your phone as it does on your desktop. The ever-evolving A-Z of our city’s relationship with beer aims to encourage locals and visitors to responsibly explore every facet – both past and present – of our little corner of the brewing world. Enjoy it, responsibly!

New to the Atlas this week is Boombox Brewing Company. The brewery within a brewery pressed play back in 2016 as a contract operation with founders/friends Kent Courtice, Phil Spurgeon and Ryan Seller crafting their first beers out of East Van’s collaborative-incubator Callister. The crew moved on to Dogwood for a spell before settling in at Parallel 49, where they continue to toil to this day.

Boombox is known for such beers as the “Arcade Glow” pale ale; seriously hoppy double IPAs like “Don’t Call it a Comeback”, “Just The Hits” and “Legend of Citra”; and IPAs such as “Red Seeker” and “Holotape”; not to mention interesting collaborations like the blood orange-soaked “Tone Def” Double IPA with Twin Sails.

Their brews are most reliably found on tap at Parallel 49. but you can also count on at least some of their slickly branded cans making their way into the coolers at our better liquor stores.
