Flagship February: Celebrating a Classic

We can’t deny the excitement of a rotating tap list – trying a unique, limited edition beer is always an enjoyment for craft fans.  But this month, we are hoping to shift the focus and celebrate the beers that are here all year ’round…


Flagship February is a campaign in the craft beer industry that encourages breweries to take time and acknowledge the beer that has influenced their culture and contributed to where they are today. Being a part of the craft community since 1999, we think this is a great way to reminisce and celebrate the brew that propelled us into being the Brewery we are today, almost 20 years later.

Voted “Best Beer in Canada” in 2014, our Sasquatch Stout is an indisputable contender for our featured #FlagshipFebruary beer. It has been with us since the very beginning and is easily the most popular of our Tall Tale Series. Not only does it’s smooth notes of mocha leave you wanting more, the story behind it is just as equally intriguing.

As the original and mysterious member, our beloved Sasquatch built the foundation for our Tall Tale Series. Inspired by the sightings of “Big Foot” in Chilliwack’s surrounding areas, our Sasquatch Stout has added a touch of mystery to Old Yale Brewing. Now joined by four other folk-lore inspired brews; our Yeti White Stout, our Screaming Banshee Irish Cream Stout, our Devilfish Single Malt & Double Hop IPA (SMaSH), and our Vanishing Monk Belgian Witbier. However, just like the folklore itself, the Sasquatch Stout is most notorious, and remains greatly sought after…

Our Sasquatch Stout is brewed with Magnum Hops, and a Malt combination of 2-row Pale, Oats, Roast, and Chocolate. Smooth, with notes of mocha, coffee and roasted barley, you can catch your own Sasquatch Sighting in our Craft Cooler (355ml), our tall can 4-pack (473ml) and of course the original format, our 650ml bomber.

Coffee, chocolate AND mystery? How could it not be legendary?
