Parallel 49 Brewing Company has established itself as a prominent player in the Canadian craft beer scene, and one of its standout offerings is the Craft Lager. This Munich Helles-style beer boasts a distinctive profile, with clean, crisp, and refreshing attributes that make it a favorite among beer enthusiasts.

Vancouver-based Parallel 49's Craft Lager is promised to be crafted with precision. The use of all malted barley sets the foundation for a well-balanced beer, contributing to both the body and the overall malt character. Additionally, the utilization of local Sterling hops, cultivated at Sartori Cedar Ranch in Chilliwack, BC, adds a touch of regional uniqueness to the brew. The choice to incorporate locally sourced Sterling hops not only supports the community but also imparts a distinct regional flavor to the Craft Lager. Fermentation is also a critical phase in beer production, and Parallel 49 adheres to tradition by employing a cool fermentation process with a German lager yeast strain.

From the carefully selected ingredients to the traditional brewing techniques, every aspect of its production contributes to a beer that is not only a delight for the palate but also a celebration of local flavors.
