brewery expansion

old yale is getting bigger!


February 23, 2016 (Chilliwack, BC) – located smack-dab in the middle of BC’s Outdoor Playground; Chilliwack BC, Old Yale Brewing has been crafting high quality, artisanal beer since 1999 and is showing no signs of slowing down.

New Location Announced
Today, Old Yale Brewing released plans of moving from their current 2,500 sq ft facility to a brand new 6,550 sq ft, purpose-built brewery and 1,250 sq ft tasting room, located on South Sumas Rd. in Chilliwack, BC. The expansion includes a brand-new brewhouse from NSI Newlands, as well an increase of over three times the current cellaring capacity. The move comes just in time, as the demand for Old Yale products has never been higher.

“Winning the Best Beer in Canada in 2014 was an incredible achievement for the whole Old Yale Brewing team, and has increased demand for our beer substantially. Increasing our brewing capacity will not only allow us to increase production to keep up with the growing consumer demand, but will also help improve our quality and consistency. We look forward to giving Chilliwack residents and visitors a unique, local experience.” stated Zach VanLeeuwen, Operations Manager for Old Yale Brewing.

New Tasting Room
The new brewery will feature a tasting room where customers can come in and enjoy a sample of Old Yale’s beer brewed on-site, fill their growler, and take a tour of the brewery. Construction on both the brewery and tasting room is well underway. Brewery design is being led by AH consulting Ltd., and the tasting room design is being led by RN Interiors. Old Yale Brewing will open the doors in its new space in Spring 2016.
