Win a Tour of Parallel 49 Brewing Company

Comments 85 by Rebecca Bollwitt

If you’ve been to a local liquor store, pub, restaurant, or even Whitecaps game in Vancouver in recent years, you’ve been fortunate enough to have a selection of great local beer like the Filthy Dirty IPA, Craft Lager and Gypsy Tears Ruby Ale. Parallel 49 Brewing Company is an East Vancouver microbrewery brewing up some of the most unique and high quality craft beers around, and I’m giving away a unique opportunity for one Miss604 reader (and beer lover) to experience how their creativity gets into each bottle.


Win a Tour of Parallel 49 Brewing Company

Three of Parallel 49 Brewing Company’s owners grew up in East Vancouver just minutes away from where the tasting room is located. Before opening, they partnered with Graham With, head brewer and mastermind behind brewery’s the delicious beers.

You have the chance to win a one-on-one brewery tour at Parallel 49 Brewing Company, led by Graham With. The lucky contest winner will get a behind the scenes tour of the brewery and find out what goes into the making of each brew. The tour will wrap up with a tasting of Parallel 49 Brewing Company’s year-round and seasonal brews at their flagship tasting room (1950 Triumph Street in Vancouver).

Here’s how you can enter to win:
