Container Review – Parallel 49, Tricycle

I’m starting a new feature today. My goal is to write less words more often. There are plenty of sites that do a beer tasting of the day. But I don’t know of any that critique the containers themselves. I don’t have a lot of talent when it comes to describing the mouth feel or the subtleties of the aroma of a beer. But, I have some definite opinions on what the bottle or can looks like.

Let’s start with one I picked up today. This is the can for Parallel 49 – Tricycle Grapefruit Radler.

Parallel 49 – Tricycle
 Art work: There is quite a bit of detail going on here. I really dig the styling. They get an A here.
Label quality: The label is painted on properly.  No plastic wrap on this one.

Beer description: A detailed description of the beer and some humor added in to boot.  Another A.
Just the facts: ABV and IBU provided.  Boxes checked.

Pop top: A little extra flair with a colored pop top.  Nice touch.

I am a labeorphilist (one who collects beer bottles) looking to discuss the adventures often involved in obtaining the bottles and the challenges that accompany the hobby.
