old yale brewing
Life is meant to be celebrated, enjoyed with those closest to you and when you live in one of the most beautiful places in BC, you tend to have a lot to celebrate. Chilliwack is BC’s outdoor adventure playground; Surrounded by towering mountains, treacherous rivers, vast fields and endless trails, adventures and moments worth exploring.
At Old Yale, we see things a little differently than the rest, and it’s that down-to-earth, pioneer spirit that drives us to make the best hand-crafted, all natural beer in Canada, pairing perfectly with adventure. So, whether it’s after a day of exploring Mt. Thom, taking a stroll along Vedder River or just kicking back on a relaxing Sunday, we believe that nothing beats good food and great craft beer with even better friends. Old Yale Brewing is Yours to Explore.
yours to explore
Kicking back at Cultus Lake is a Fraser Valley Summer staple and we’ve crafted the perfect beers; West Coast IPA & Off Trail Pale Ale to help you have the best experience… Pro tip: we recommend that the beer is as cold as the lake you’re swimming!
At Old Yale, we believe there is nothing better than delicious food, great beer and even better friends… especially when local artist, Kyler Pierce comes and plays his awesome new single ‘Withdrawal’ at your backyard BBQ.
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.
Your tan will fade, but the stories of what happened this Summer are going to be retold and retold all Winter, so make them count… like spending a SUNday floating on the breathtaking (and VERY cold) Harrison Lake with good friends… and beer!
At Old Yale, we believe there is nothing better than delicious food, great beer and even better friends… especially when local artist, Ben Cottrill comes and plays his awesome new single ‘Won’t be with you’ around a campfire.
In case you’re wondering, the perfect beer to bring along for a Mt Thom hike in Chilliwack is our perfectly balanced and refreshing Off Trail Pale Ale, because sometimes you have to get a little Off Trail to find a view like Mt Thom has to offer…
In the heart of our Brewery is our Back Porch Tasting Room, where you can always count on us for delicious food, great beer and even better friends. Visit us for a pint or a flight of our 15 beers on tap brewed on-site, snack on some tasty Campfire Kitchen food, fill your Growler and stay for the weekly live music.
Celebrating our 20th anniversary this year (OYB opened it’s doors, way back in 1999), we threw ourselves a big ol' birthday party with plenty of throwback O-G beers, live music, a food truck, cupcakes, a pinata and more! PS. We’re still accepting birthday gifts…
The name "Sasquatch" sends shivers down even the most grizzled man's spine. Dark and robust, both Sasquatches are known to be found lurking around a crackling fire. The only difference is, with our award-winning Stout, you will have the opportunity to experience it more than once...
This past May, we hosted our 2nd annual Fraser Valley Cask Festival with all of our brewery buddies. It was a bit rainy, but an awesome day filled with craft beer, music, food and of course good times!
Our hand-crafted crisp and light BC Backyard Lager; made with 100% BC-grown ingredients, and a BBQ with friends… is there a better way to spend a sunny day?
Crafted with Reel West Coast, our mutual love for fishing and the outdoors inspired this refreshing Lager made with local Chilliwack Honey, that tastes best outside, especially near water!
We recently expanded our Tasting Room at Old Yale and can't wait to share it with you... you gotta see it in person to really experience it, so come have a beer (or two!) with us...
