Parallel 49 Brewing Company and Central City Brewers and Distillers have reunited to create their second collaboration holiday 24-pack of craft beer.

All aboard for 24 new craft brews

Parallel 49 Brewing Company and Central City Brewers and Distillers launch Christmas beer 'calendar' for 2015.

This holiday season, Central City Brewers and Distillers and Parallel 49 Brewing Company are joining forces for the limited release Craft Crossing Calendar collaboration holiday 24-pack. Back by popular demand, the Craft Crossing Calendar is the second holiday pack the two craft breweries have collaborated on – this year incorporating 12 brand new holiday beers and 12 tried and true classics.

Just in time for Christmas, the Craft Crossing Calendar is returning to liquor stores in B.C, Alberta and Manitoba this month. The holiday pack celebrates the brewing prowess of brew masters Graham With (Parallel 49 Brewing Company) and Gary Lohin (Central City). Each Craft Crossing conductor is brewing six new special brews unique to the holiday collaboration that include sour beers, stouts, bocks, pale ales and winter ales.

“The response from last year’s collaboration was tremendous and this year, we injected even more holiday cheer with 12 new unique brews,” said Lohin. “These holiday brews can only be found in the Craft Crossing Calendar and the beers in the 24-pack will remain a mystery until you open them, just like you would with a traditional chocolate advent calendar.”

Graham said the Craft Crossing Calendar was a challenging and rewarding project for the team.

“Expanding the depth of the project by adding more unique beers than last year allowed for us to stretch our legs creatively and deliver a what we hope is a great experience for those buying the pack,” he said.

The limited release Craft Crossing Calendar collaboration holiday 24-pack makes for a great holiday gift and features special holiday beers unique to the 24-pack. The Craft Crossing Calendar is now available in liquor stores in B.C, Alberta and Manitoba.
