Chilliwack brewery eyes downtown Abbotsford location

Old Yale Brewing wants to operate a brewery and tasting room in Abbotsford’s historic downtown

A Chilliwack brewery wants to set up shop in Abbotsford’s historic downtown.

Online records published on the city’s website show that consultants for Old Yale Brewing have applied to create a brewery and tasting room on Laurel Street at a property occupied by the Abbotsford Banquet and Conference Centre.

Little other information is available on the application, which was made by Thrive Advisors, a consulting company that works with liquor and cannabis businesses to obtain licences and permits.

The News has asked Old Yale for more information.

A move to Abbotsford by Old Yale would be just the latest Fraser Valley brewery to set up an auxiliary brewhouse in a neighbouring city.

Langley’s Trading Post Brewing opened a restaurant and micro-brewery in Abbotsford last year. And Abbotsford’s Field House Brewing plans to open a location in Chilliwack’s downtown.
