Parallel 49 Beer at The August Jack


We recently dined at The August Jack and want more! What better way to do so than a brewmaster dinner with one of our favourite very local breweries, Parallel 49 Brewing.  Just hope we’re back from the Cowichan in time for this.  GLV

4 course and 4 beers with Graham With.

We’ve also hear that  a August Jack CUSTOM CASK will be made for the night.  They’re calling it “Lord of the Peaches” -> Lord of The Hops IPA infused with Fresh Bay Leaves and Okanagan Peaches.  Oh my!


Call The August Jack to reserve http://www.theaugustjack.com/?events=parallel-49-brewmasters-dinner
