About Old Yale

At Old Yale Brewing, we’re proud of where we come from. Located near the gateway to the pristine and breathtaking Chilliwack River Valley, our home gives us a fresh perspective - a perspective that not only shapes who we are but also how we approach the craft of making great beer.

Since our start in 1999, our pioneering brewmaster has always stayed true to his roots; seeking perfect balance using the finest, all natural ingredients combined with Canada’s best drinking water. Our entire award winning line up - from the crisp, straightforward Knotty Blonde to Canada’s best beer, the Sasquatch Stout - is made to reflect this balance and is inspired by the landscape that surrounds us.

We believe the story of our hand-crafted beer can’t be fully told using words alone. The beer’s story has to be experienced, one sip at a time. We only brew beer that we love to drink, so when it comes to telling our story, we let our beer do the talking. Cheers!

Our brewery

Our brewery is located smack-dab in the middle of BC’s Outdoor Playground; Chilliwack BC. We have been crafting beer since 1999 and are incredibly excited to be moving our brewery to a new location in Chilliwack (and tripling our brewing capacity to meet the growing demand for our beer).

We will be moving from our current 2,500 sq ft facility to a brand new 6,550 sq ft. purpose-built brewery and 1,250 sq ft. tasting room, located on South Sumas Rd. in Chilliwack, BC. The expansion includes a brand-new brewhouse from NSI Newlands, as well an increase of over three times the current cellaring capacity.

The new brewery will feature a tasting room where you can come in and enjoy a sample of our beer brewed on-site, fill your growler, and take a tour of the brewery. Construction on both the brewery and tasting room is well underway. Brewery design is being led by AH consulting Ltd., and the tasting room design is being led by RN Interiors.

We'll be opening doors in our new space Spring 2016.
