The GOODS from Parallel 49 Brewing Co.
Vancouver, BC | On February 28th, Parallel 49 Brewing Company will launch their third Brews Brothers collaboration pack. Putting a West Coast, old school hip-hop spin on this year’s mixer pack, Parallel 49 Brewing Company has joined forces with four West Coast breweries based out of the United States. The mixer-pack includes four 650ml bomber-style bottles and will be available for purchase at select BC Liquor Stores and private liquor stores throughout the province.
Beer lovers can look forward to all-new, limited edition brews such as Blazing Arrow, a tawny IPA made with Gigantic Brewing Company (Portland, OR), What’s Golden, an “east meets west” IPA developed with Green Flash Brewing (San Diego, CA), Gettin’ It, a Northern farmhouse style beer made with 49th State Brewing (Anchorage, AK), and Baby Got Back, a hoppy hefeweizen beer brewed with Scuttlebutt Brewing Company (Everett, WA). All beers in the mixer-pack will pay homage to old school hip-hop songs from West Coast groups.
“As far apart as the breweries are from each other, it was neat to see how much we had in common,” said Graham With, Head Brewer at Parallel 49 Brewing Company. “The process of coming up with recipes with each brewery from the United States was surprisingly smooth. Collaborating with these breweries shed light on our similarities and allowed us to get ideas from other perspectives.”
The Brews Brothers Volume 3 mixer-pack will be available on February 28th, 2017 at select BC Liquor Stores and private liquor stores throughout the province. For more information on Parallel 49 Brewing Company please visit parallel49brewing.com.

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
