Brews Brothers (Vol 3) – Parallel 49 Brewing

By Mike @mikescraftbeer

Brews Brothers was born two years ago as a 12 case collaboration mixed pack. The first two packs were collaborations within the province of British Columbia. Volume One was a Blues inspired pack and year two was a Rock and Roll theme. This year things have changed as it is now a 4 bomber pack in Collaboration with American breweries.

This year the theme is Old School Rap and the entire West Coast of Canada and the USA has been involved. It is almost like an Extended Cascadia colab.

Brews Brothers (Vol 3) – Parallel 49 Brewing

This years Brews include from North to South:

49th State Brewing (Anchorage, AK) - Gettin' It, a Northern Farmhouse Style Beer
Scuttlebutt Brewing Company (Everett, WA) - Baby Got Back, a Hoppy Hefeweizen
Gigantic Brewing Company (Portland, OR) - Blazing Arrow, a Tawny IPA
Green Flash Brewing (San Diego, CA) - What's Golden, an "East Meets West" IPA

What's Golden, an "East Meets West" IPA

This creation of Parallel 49 Brewing and Green Flash Brewing out of San Diego California pours an orange colour with a white head. The aroma consists of mango, citrus, very fruity, caramel and a floral finish. The flavour is of caramel, resin, citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit, pine and bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 6.5%. This is a really juicy beer and has everything you like from East Coast and West Coast Beers.

Brews Brothers (Vol 3) – Parallel 49 Brewing Gettin' It, a Northern Farmhouse Style Beer

This creation of Parallel 49 Brewing and 49th State Brewing from Anchorage Alaska pours a slightly cloudy golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of yeast, lemon, candied pears and grain. The flavour is of bready malts, grain, yeast, lemon, pear and grassy hops. The alcohol content comes in at 7%. This is more of a sweet saison than a farmhouse ale but that does not change the fact that it is a well made ale.

I have tried all three Brews Brothers collaboration boxes and reviewed two now. This one was just as good as the others and well worth picking up in the liquor stores now!
