Old Yale

EST. 1999 | Chilliwack

Old Yale has been blazing trails and brewing beer in Chilliwack since 1999.

Originally established in 1999 in another location, Old Yale moved into its big and beautiful, purpose-built space several years ago, giving it more room for brewing beer, as well as for serving enthusiastic customers in its tasting room. The brewery’s founder was a retired Air Force pilot who was stationed in Goose Bay, Labrador for a time. Visiting pilots from around the world often shared beers from their homelands, which showed him that beer could be much more interesting than what he was used to from the big breweries here. Old Yale has stayed close to those roots by brewing world-class, award-winning beers, including its Sasquatch Stout, which was named Beer of the Year at the 2014 Canadian Brewing Awards.
