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 we moved to our current location in late 2011.

We brew our beer out of our 18HL brewhouse; The original brewhouse that Deschutes used to brew their beer in Bend, Oregon. Each batch is mixed by hand under the careful eye of our brewmaster Larry Caza.

In Summer 2014, we purchased a brand new, fully automatic 6-head bottle filler, a brand new set of fermenting and serving vessels, a new grain mill as well as a state-of-the-art keg cleaning and filling station. We also completely renovated our storefront, where we now serve 100’s of customers each week!
