Old Yale Brewing Co. has once again picked up awards for its beer.

Chilliwack brewery brings home pair of awards

"We are proud to recognized as one of the best of the best," said Jeremy Sibley of Old Yale Brewing

Old Yale Brewing has done it again.

Brewery reps in Chilliwack are thrilled to have brought home a pair of awards from the 2013 BC Beer Awards in Vancouver last Saturday.

They took second place in one of the most competitive categories, American Ale, as well as a third place finish for the robust Sasquatch Stout.

“We’re very happy about winning two awards at the BC Beer awards,” crowed brewery partner Jeremy Sibley.

Craft breweries are on the rise across B.C. They’ve increased by about 50 per cent in the past few years and many of these brewers are making stellar beer.

“We are proud to recognized as one of the best of the best,” said Sibley.

Old Yale brewmaster Larry Caza has been handcrafting the suds in Chilliwack since 2001, “well before craft beer was as popular as it is now,” he added. “He continues to brew some of the best beer in the province.”

Caza has demonstrated considerable skill in creating new recipes as evidenced by this summer’s Outta Wack Mango Wheat Ale and DOAle named after the proto-punk band DOA.

“Very soon we will be releasing our Irish-Cream Stout in time for the cold weather.”

Caza also creates unique, small batch beers at #4-7965 Venture Place.
