Parallel 49 Brews Brothers Collaboration Beer Mixed 12 PackVancouver, BC – March 23rd 2015 – East Vancouver’s Parallel 49 Brewing Company has announced the release of their new collaboration mixer pack, featuring 12 beers, each brewed by Parallel 49 Brewing Company in collaboration with 12 different British Columbia breweries.

The list of participants in this blues inspired collaborative brew set includes Townsite, Steel & Oak, Firehall, Bomber, Persephone, Storm, Rossland, Dageraad, Moon Under Water, Brassneck, Yellow Dog and Powell Street.

“Collaborating with multiple breweries allowed us to take our creativity to the next level and develop a fresh spin on the regular 12-pack,” said Graham With, Head Brewmaster at Parallel 49 Brewing Company. “We really enjoy collaborating, and I feel like launching the Brews Brothers mixer pack with 12 options brings out the best of each brewery.”

Each beer is named after a classic blues song, including “Stormy Monday”, “Little Red Rooster”, and “House of the Rising Sun.” In addition to the House of Brews party in Vancouver, Parallel 49 Brewing Company is also planning a province wide launch on March 31st, where bars across the province will be participating in 12 beer tap takeovers.
