The GOODS from Parallel 49 Brewing Co.
Vancouver, BC | Parallel 49 Brewing Company is celebrating fall with a full roster of seasonal brews. This season, beer lovers are able to sip on autumn staples like the Salty Scot Sea Salted Caramel Scotch Ale, Schadenfreude Pumpkin Oktoberfest and Lost Souls Chocolate Pumpkin Porter while cozying up with new brews like the Hopnotist Imperial Single Hop IPA and the 187 On An Undercover Hop Imperial IPA.
Parallel 49 Brewing Company’s Schadenfreude Pumpkin Oktoberfest is a traditional Oktoberfest Lager. Unique from other pumpkin ales, this brew is light and refreshing with real pumpkin and pumpkin pie spicing added in throughout the brewing process. For a sweeter alternative, the Lost Souls Chocolate Pumpkin Porter blends chocolate malts, pumpkin pie spicing and an English strain of yeast for a rich, fruity taste. Parallel 49 Brewing Company classic, the Salty Scot Sea Salted Caramel Scotch Ale, is an aromatic blend with a strong caramel malt flavour and sweet yet light finish.
“We’re so excited to share our seasonal brews with beer lovers,” said Graham With, Head Brewmaster at Parallel 49 Brewing Company. “We always have fun experimenting with new ingredients and flavours before releasing our final product.”
New this year to the Parallel 49 Brewing Company line-up, the Hopnotist Imperial Single Hop IPA is brewed with heavy hops and underlying notes of blueberry, guava, currants and tropical fruit. For a higher percentage brew, the biting 187 On An Undercover Hop Imperial IPA boasts a fruity, citrus hop flavour and is backed by a light caramel body.

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
