“Chilliwack meets North Vancouver in this unique take on a traditional Bavarian Wheat Ale! We’ve always admired what our friends at Bridge Brewing have done from afar, and we’re beyond excited to finally be collaborating with them on this fantastic beer. We know we speak for Bridge Brewing, when we say we’re all really excited to see our community’s adventures with this beer on both sides of the Port Mann bridge!” – Heather Perdue, Brand & Marketing Strategist.

This delicious collaboration brew is our take on a classic style updated with a little West Coast-flair.

“Brewed in collaboration (virtually) with our friends at Bridge Brewing, our West Coast Hefeweizen embodies everything we both love about Spring. Inspired by the mountains of the North Shore and Fraser River Valley, we wanted to create the perfect springtime adventure sipper. A classic Hefeweizen with a twist, Mandarina Bavaria and Amarillo provide a succulent tangerine aroma to complement the notes of banana, and bubblegum from the Bavarian yeast. Prost!!” – Nick Fengler, Brewmaster.

West Coast Hefeweizen is available in 473ml 4-packs now in the Old Yale Tasting Room and Private Liquor Stores. Learn more here: Or, stop by the brewery for a taste!
