We’ve finally accepted that it’s time to embrace the Fall/Winter season at Old Yale Brewing… so with that, it’s out with the Summer Craft Cooler mix and in with the NEW Winter variety pack!! That’s right, we’ve refreshed our Craft Cooler 12-pack mix with some new and existing tasty brews.

Here’s the new line-up:

+ NEW River Valley Amber (5.0%) – a deep, rich colour accompanied by notes of toasted malt & caramel, and a smooth, refreshing finish. A rare blend of both balance and complexity.

+ West Coast IPA (6.0%) – packed with over 50lbs of the much sought after Citra and Galaxy Hops, boasting huge hop flavor, but also a balanced drinkability.

+ Knotty Blonde Ale (5.0%) – Old world hops meet new, carefully crafted to have a subtle grapefruit flavor with a frothy, creamy head. Clean and crisp, rounding out this perfect adventure mix-pack!

Our Craft Cooler 12-pack is available NOW in the Old Yale Tasting Room and will be hitting your local BC and Private Liquor Store shelves in next few weeks. And stay tuned for the River Valley Amber, this new brew will be on tap soon in your favourite restaurants, bars and the Tasting Room soon! 

With the addition of our new River Valley Amber, we sadly, had to retire one of our all-season brews. As much as we all LOVE our trusty, Old Paddle Pilsner, it’s time for it to go on ‘sabbatical’. If you see a 6-pack of this tasty brew with it’s distinctive malt, traditional, pick it up as it won’t be around for much longer! Cheers to all the adventures we had with our Old Paddle Pilsner, and the new ones to come!
