Parallel 49 Brewing Company
Parallel 49 Brewing Company is easily one of the most well-known and visible breweries in Vancouver.
The team at Parallel 49 came together and opened St Augustine’s on Commercial Drive in Vancouver. Since then, the pub became a craft beer mecca in the city. The group brought local home brewing legend Graham With on board and started what would become one of the most recognizable beer brands in BC.
Parallel 49 continues to brew beer that is both innovative and immensely drinkable. In their tasting room (currently being renovated) they offer daily infusions that paired unusual and occasionally bizarre ingredients with one of their existing beers. The tasting room is typically very busy, even as the brewery sits within sea of breweries in the Yeast Vancouver area they call home.
The tasting room at the Triumph Street location offers a constantly rotating selection of beer to sample and fill your growler, as well as some tasty snack options to pair with your brew. Although the tasting room is a great place to sample the unique and unconventional Parallel 49 brews, their beers are some of the most widely available Vancouver craft beers around. This makes it easy to try some of their beer if you’re unable to wait in line to sit down for a flight.
