NeFAIRious, a cerveza-style lager, was tailor-made for a hot summer’s day
You may not find puns hilarious, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying NeFAIRious.
“In terms of branding, we’re kind of known for our puns,” said Anthony Frustagli, co-founder of Parallel 49 craft brewery. “We use a lot of puns, we’re big fans of them. We feel like puns are like pizza, there’s no such thing as a bad one.”
What NeFAIRious is is a cerveza-style lager custom-made for the PNE Fair by the folks at Parallel 49, while the art on the can is a chupacabra as imagined by East Van artist Steve Kitchen.
The PNE Fair holds a special place in many people’s hearts, but those who grew up in East Van seem to have a particularly fond association with it.
