Chilliwack beer is Canada's best
Chilliwack's little brewery that could is in the spotlight once again as Old Yale Brewing's Sasquatch Stout was named beer of the year at the 2014 Canadian Brewing Awards on Saturday night.
Brewmaster Larry Caza picked up the award at the ceremony in Fredericton, N.B.
Caza is the award-winning brewmaster at Old Yale Brewery, which he founded back in 2000. He stopped brewing in October 2010, but a trio of local investors stepped up to revive Old Yale in late 2011. With full-time jobs of their own, however, the new owners made the decision this year to sell the brewery.
Enter The 2Story Group, an ownership group made up of two local entrepreneurs that manage a number of successful businesses, the most well known of which is Petcurean pet foods.
The award will further spur the owners who have new branding and marketing plans in the works.
