VCBW Collaboration Altbier – Parallel 49 Brewing


O’hare’s Beer Club June 2013 Box

From Parallel 49 brewing out of East Vancouver comes the “VCBW Collaboration Altbier”.  This Vancouver Craft Beer Week Collaboration beer is an old brew from Storm Brewing originally called Red Sky Alt.  The beer pours a chestnut colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of malts, sweet citrus, wheat and some malts.  The flavour is of malts, sweet citrus, wheat, hops bitterness and an earthy finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 5.8% with and IBU of 25.  This was a nice crafted Altbier with just enough flavour to bring you back for a second bottle.

Commercial Description:  Each year BC Craft Brewers team up to creat the VCBW Collaboration Beer and donate the profits to a local charity.  This year, the brewers have chosen to recreate Storm Brewing’s Red Sky Alt, one of the first craft beers produced in BC.  This year’s proceeds from the sales are being donated to A Better Life Foundation, which will use the money to help fund the Save On Meats Meal Token Program.  Brewed and bottled at Parallel 49 Brewing.

Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows:Grilled Meats and Saucy BBQ
