This is one of the original breweries to pop up before "Yeast Van" started to catch fire and they are still one of my favourite. There's always a ton of new beer to try plus the originals always on tap. They always have something fun going on in the "infuser". For example, yesterday I sampled their ESA infused with Swedish Berries (Yes, the sweet, gummy candy). Don't miss stopping here if you're in the area.

Great craft beers you'll have trouble finding elsewhere await at Parallel 49. Good vibe, nice selection (of really quite nice beers - such as the nitro stout). Only complaint is that it closes rather early, as it is in a residential area of Vancouver. Definitely the place to check out in Vancouver.

I stopped in a Parallel 49 last weekend while visiting a number of breweries in the neighborhood. It was definitely the largest of the ones I visited, with plenty of space in the taproom and a wide selection of beers available (well over a dozen). There was also a decent take-away selection plus a Randall (which, alas, I did not try). The beer I tried was decent enough; not mind-blowing but not bad either. The place was quite busy but the bar staff managed to handle the rush pretty well. Worth checking out, but not exactly an intimate brewpub experience.
