October 4, 2018 (Chilliwack, BC) – Old Yale Brewing, a craft brewery based in Chilliwack, BC, can be considered one of the pioneer companies in the Canadian Craft Beer Industry. With over 19+ years of craft brewing success (including Canadian Brewing “Beer of the Year” win for Sasquatch Stout in 2014), Old Yale Brewing continues to innovate and create new products that meet the growing consumer demand for great tasting craft beer.
Today, Old Yale Brewing released the first ever Fraser Valley Collaboration beer, The Valley, a Double Fresh Hop Farmhouse Ale brewed by 5 breweries located in the beautiful Fraser Valley. Brewed by Old Yale Brewing, Field House Brewing Co, Raven’s Brewing, Trading Post Brewing and Foamers’ Folly Brewing, this Fresh Hop beer celebrates the Fraser Valley craft beer experience.
“We’re been talking about this collaboration for a few years now, so it’s extremely exciting to finally make it happen. We’re so thrilled that we’re able to showcase the Fraser Valley craft beer community with our friends from Foamer’s Folly, Trading Post, Field House and Ravens with this amazing double fresh hop brew that also features the brand-new Sasquatch Hops, grown on Hops Connect Abbotsford Farm.” – stated Zach Vanleeuwan, General Manager, Old Yale Brewing.
Along with being the debut Fraser Valley Collaboration, this Fresh Hop beer is also the first to use the brand new, Canadian-design and Abbotsford-grown, Sasquatch Hops.
“Once we learned that the new Canadian-designed Sasquatch hop variety was growing right in our backyard, it was a no brainer. We wanted to be able to encompass the hardworking agriculture backbone of our home, and what better way than a Farmhouse-style Ale that features the first ever harvest of these hops.” – Nick Fengler, Brewmaster at Old Yale Brewing.

“This was such a great opportunity to collaborate with some incredible Brewmasters. We each brought different ideas to the table and knew we wanted to showcase the Fraser Valley, so of course a Fresh Hop beer became the obvious choice.”– said Brewmaster, Nick Fengler.
