Old Yale Brewing Partners with Abbotsford Bloom Tulip Festival

For Immediate Release

April 20th, 2018 (Chilliwack, BC) – Old Yale Brewing, a craft brewery based in Chilliwack, BC, continues to innovate, create new products and blaze new trails with their 19+ years of craft brewing success (including Canadian Brewing ‘Beer of the Year’ win for Sasquatch Stout in 2014).

Today, Old Yale Brewing released their newest collaboration beer; Bloom Tulip Ale. Celebrating Spring, Old Yale Brewing and the Abbotsford Bloom Tulip Festival bloomed and brewed a truly one-of-a-kind collaboration beer that perfectly showcases the beauty of fresh air, mountain view and endless colours in the Fraser Valley.

“We’re thrilled to be collaborating on a tulip-inspired beer for the second year in a row with the team from Abbotsford Bloom Tulip Festival. They have created an incredible local event, and we are so happy to be able to partner and offer a really unique experience to all of our Fraser Valley customers and friends!” – stated Zach Vanleeuwan, General Manager, Old Yale Brewing.

Bloom Tulip Ale
Lovingly hand-crafted with 2,000 fresh cut tulips from the Abbotsford Bloom Tulip Festival fields, this beer is a Fraser Valley springtime classic. Upfront is a clean, crisp ale with the tulips adding to an incredibly refreshing finish (and that incredible colour!).

ABV: 4.5%
Hops: Yellow Sub, Azacca
Malt: BC Pale, Wheat, Wheat Flakes
Beer colour: Blue

“We’ve created a delightful summer ale, brewed with over 2,000 tulips as well as butterfly pea flower. It’s these fantastic floral additions that give the beer a vibrant blue colour. Adding to the uniqueness of this brew, we dry-hopped our Bloom Tulip Ale with Yellow Sub and Azacca, both relatively new varieties of hops that lend a delicious medley of fruit character.” – said Brewmaster, Nick Fengler.

The Bloom Tulip Ale is available now in the Old Yale tasting room and will be available for purchase at the Abbotsford Bloom Tulip Festival on the weekends (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) through to May 13th (while quantities last), starting today. This is a limited release brew, so make sure to get it while it lasts. Learn more here www.oldyalebrewing.com. Or, stop by the brewery for a taste!
