Parallel 49 Brewing Company opened in 2012 by East
Vancouver natives Mike Sleeman, Anthony Frustagli and Nick Paladino,
along with Scott Venema, Michael Tod and Head Brewer Graham With. Craft
beer enthusiasts and avid home brewers, the team dreamed of opening
their own microbrewery and wanted to provide their neighbourhood with
quality, one-of-a-kind craft beer. Parallel 49 Brewing Company was one
of the first breweries to open in Vancouver and has become one of the
biggest names in the BC craft beer industry.
"For years, we’ve wanted to build on our tasting
room and open up a restaurant,” said
Graham With, Head Brewer at Parallel 49 Brewing Company. “The guys and I are all
huge foodies and love street food. We always liked having local food
trucks outside our tasting room for our guests. We had a dream of
merging a food truck and a brewery into one space and are so happy to
finally see this dream, and months of hard work, turn into a reality.”
Parallel 49 Brewing
Company’s new Street Kitchen Restaurant offers street food-style fare,
along with 40 beers on tap.

BREWING UP GENDER PARITY: THE QUEST FOR BEERQUALITY
REBECCA WHYMAN • JUNE 13, 2019
Women are markedly underrepresented in craft beer. This is not news to anyone. But have you ruminated on just how large the gender gap is? A 2018 survey by Nielsen-Harris found American craft beer drinkers are 68.5 per cent male and 31.5 per cent female.
