How We Came To Be
Parable Brewing Company started as a passion-project between head brewer – Jon Peterson, local beer-enthusiasts, and the people of Manchester, CT. Since the beginning, our goal has simply been to create a no-frill brewery with a pure focus of creating high-quality beers, in a wide-variety of styles. Parable is purely a grass-roots effort with no corporate backing or deep pockets.. just some regular beer-lovers trying to create something special!
We believe the concept of a “parable” is a natural fit to embody the long evolution of the brewing process and beer community. A parable is a simple story used to illustrate a moral, and not many industries can boast such a legendary history, vast collection of great stories/lessons, and a narrative of knowledge gained along the way.
The Parable Logo
Depicting a vessel filled with the essential brewing ingredients – is our attempt to embody the wisdom carried through many generations, just as the techniques of brewing have been passed down around the world.
With over ten years of brewing experience, Jon offers a unique blend of knowledge, creativity, and obsession for beer. Jon’s favorite beers to brew include IPAs / Double-IPAs and stouts, in addition to a diverse assortment that includes porters, lagers, pilsners, pale ales, blondes, and much more. Also keep a look out as Jon adds sours and new barrel-aging programs in the future!
Offering a rustic-industrial atmosphere and close proximity to shops and restaurants, Parable Brewing Company is now the newest staple in the booming town of Manchester, CT. Operating primarily as a retail outlet, we offer samples and pints, along with an emphasis on “to-go” options like crowlers and growler fills.
