"For those about to rock..."

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Axe and Barrel

    Paranoid

    Oat Wild Pilsner 8.5% ABV

    Not your typical beer. Start with an Imperial Pilsner recipe, throw in some rice and Sorachi Ace hops, add Sake yeast and Brettanomyces clausenii, and just for good measure put in some oak spirals aged in Chardonnay and Sake. Don't forget to finish it with lager yeast. Seem too complicated? No comment.

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Barkerville

    Run to the Hills

    Golden Strong Ale 8.0% ABV

    A traditional Golden Strong Ale. Spicy and fruity yeast derived notes add a rush of Belgian character to this golden elixir. A healthy addition of sugar to the pale malt base results in a deceptively light body for a higher alcohol beer.

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Bridge

    Bat Outta Hell

    Dark Helles Bock 6.3% ABV

    A Helles Bock that would infuriate any German beer traditionalist. A core of Continental pale malts book-ended with a touch of black malt to give it a imposing colour and a hearty dose of Hallertau Blanc hops to add a bright gooseberry aroma. A fruity malty lager that is surprisingly dark.

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Cannery

    Gimme Shelter

    Apple IPA 7.0% ABV

    A snakebite inspired beer, using a witbier base fermented with a Saison yeast. Spicy yeast and floral citrus notes sit atop a light apple tinged wheat malt base. Dry hopped with Motueka and Citra because... well... why not?

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Category 12

    Comfortably Numb

    Rye Old Ale 8.9% ABV

    A rich and malty ale with a substantial rye note was fermented with Brettanomyces lambicus to add a cherry funk. This all-malt beer uses earthy hops to balance. This beer doesn't hide it's alcohol or the spicy cherry character that it developed.

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Crannóg Ales

    Suspect Device

    Gruit 5.5% ABV

    A gruit spiced with organic heather flowers, juniper and dry "hopped" with fresh ginger. This mild rye ale focuses on the spicy ginger and juniper, reserving the heather for a background note to support the rich organic Munich malt base. Maybe hops aren't necessary in every beer.

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Doan Brothers

    Thunderstruck

    Sticke Alt 6.0% ABV

    With origins in Northern Germany, this dark cool fermented ale has been turned up to 11 with some chocolate malt notes and a prominent noble dry hop. Continental Pilsner malt ensures a refined and highly drinkable beer that is deceptively strong.

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Fernie

    Spirit in the Sky

    Havana Club Stout 6.5% ABV

    Inspired by Export Stouts and rum, the dark crystal malts and touch of molasses serve to remind the drinker of the later. Oak spirals aged in Havana Club 7-year old rum add another level of complexity to this surprisingly smooth drinking dark tawny ale.

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Four Winds

    The Boys Are Back in Town

    Nectar-Face 6.0% ABV

    The love-child of Jerkface 9000 and Nectarous we've been waiting for. A wheat malt base kettle soured a la Four Winds, and late hopped with Mosaic and Ahtanum hops in the Parallel 49 style. A true marriage of techniques and ingredients results is a pungent dry-hopped sour.

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Hearthstone

    Sympathy for the Devil

    Black IPA 6.5%

    A rustic and uncomplicated Black IPA. Simcoe hops are made for a beer like this. A moderate malty base, a touch of Roasted Barley flavour, and a restrained ABV make this a beer you'll be coming back to again and again.

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Moody Ales

    Purple Haze

    Black Currant Sour 8.0% ABV

    A darker take on the nearly forgotten Belgian style. Toi qui ce soir a tout perdu. Demain tu peux gagner.Playing off of the woodsy resinous flavour of Black Currants, this American sour wheat ale hints at the summer to come. Brace yourself for this tart fruity treat that has perhaps the most stunning colour of any beer we've ever seen.

  • Parallel 49 Brewing x Strange Fellows

    People Are Strange

    Hoppy Saison 6.5% ABV

    A classic Saison with an dose of rye malt to throw in some complexity. Taking advantage of the fruity herbal aroma of Opal hops and the spicy pepper notes from the farmhouse yeast. This is sure to be a thirst quencher.
