East Vancouver

Join us for a Tour of Parallel 49 Brewing

Since the dawn of time, there have been home brewers in East Van who were crazy enough to think they could start their own brewery and by some miracle, actually make it a success. This isn’t that kind of story though…

The story of Parallel 49 is a story of ordinary people with extraordinary ideas. It’s a story of hope, hyperbole and hops, of visions and determination, of outrage and artistry, of sacrifice and sacrilege…

A story of long lunches and short tempers, of humour and rumour, broken golf clubs and airborne coffee cups. It’s a story of runaway forklift trucks, of broken bones at the staff Christmas party, and heroic turns on the Karaoke machine…

The story of Parallel 49 is a story of a brewery that strives to create clever and innovative beers that are highly drinkable. It’s a story that continues to meander and morph to this day.


What pairs well with 40 taps? The creatively orchestrated menu available from Street Kitchen in our bright new restaurant. With seasonal ingredients rotating just as often as our tap list, Chef Aubrey Pingitore creates a selection of dishes to pair alongside your favourite Parallel 49 brews.

Buying beer to take home

Beer is available for purchase in various growler sizes,  cans and bottles.

Tours available subject to availability, as we only visit the breweries when it’s convenient for them to have large groups.
