“Down the street from Farmhouse, in a small industrial block in an otherwise rural area. If you're choosing between the two, Old Yale has better beer and Farmhouse has better food (ok, small sample size). Farmhouse has a slightly better view - they both face north so it's not that much difference. It didn't seem like there was much indoor seating, as it's mostly a big production facility in there, but they had a nice tent with picnic tables. It was a warm March afternoon but also they had heaters. Not a lot of new beer, considering how little energy I put into trying Old Yale beers. But decent quality on them. Fun place for a quick stop, should they have something interesting on the menu.“

“A new spot in downtown Chilliwack with probably the nicest interior of the three downtown breweries. Service was fast though I did visit in the early hours. Beers are simply okay, but the pair that run the place seem passionate about it and I'd wager they'll improve. Prices were in line with the area. Downtown Chilliwack has all the makings of a good little beer crawl.“

“Right next to Bricklayer is this nice open spot in downtown Chilliwack, and much easier to reach than Field House's main operation over in Abbotsford. Service was quick enough and they have plenty of beers on offer from them I hadn't seen elsewhere. A great stop when downtown.“

“Quite a flash rustique chique place literally in the middle of nowhere, but actually within walking distance of Old Yale Brewing though the road is narrow and huge trucks threaten your life each second. Try the north side of the street for a little more space between your soft body and the massive cargo vessels blasting past. Inside is a nice open space with large wooden tables, great views of the surrounding mountains, and the pizza oven smells way better than any of their beers. Which brings us to the problem: the beers are boring. Somehow not awful, nothing truly offensive, just nothing memorable. Not even a kind of paint by numbers beer menu that you will recognize as standard for the style. I had a calzone however and it was excellent. I'd come here for the food sooner than I would for the beers. Note that by transit the easiest way to reach this place is by the Fraser Valley Express to the Lickman Park & Ride and then walk 45 minutes south along Lickman Road.“

“A classic rural Valley setting, surrounding by flat farmland and framed by mountains all around. Compared with other similar breweries in BC, they have a better view than Persephone but not as good as Beer Farmers. I thought the staff did a good job, and the food was really solid. Proper pizza oven and it shows, with that high gluten dough and high quality ingredients. So there's some things they're doing right. But the beer needs quite a bit of work. I visited only a few weeks after opening but the beer isn't really pro level, and that's disappointing to see. Faults in pretty much every beer, and that's something they'll want to resolve in a hurry. As a brewery, you can get away with a lack of ambition if you're pleasing your crowd. But beer that's got faults won't please too many crowds for too long. It's an existential imperative to right the ship quickly on the beer front, because everything else about the place is quality.“

“Situated downtown in the Wack, Field House is on the same block as Bricklayer Brewing, in a nice building. Street parking but there's a big municipal lot close by. I haven't had any trouble parking here, but I have no idea why as it looks like it would be tough. The room is spacious and of course there's a patio cause in covid times we drink outside all year round. I like the space, it feels warm and cozy despite being of reasonable size. Service is decent. Field House CHWK has its own brewery, focusing on lagers and hazies. They have some Abby beers on tap, too, but I have yet to see CHWK beers in Abbotsford. So far, I've had about 7 or 8 CHWK beers and they're pretty good. The lagers are strong out of the gate, and the pales aren't half bad either. Having these unique offerings, and a similar menu to Abby means I'll probably choose CHWK over the flagship most times (it's always a choice for me because I'm going between YVR and YLW). Really happy with this addition to the Valley scene. “

“A few of us stopped in during Covid-19 time. We got a few crowlers to go and drank across the street. The New England IPA and the Stout Stout were very good.“

“A cavernous brewery tasting room in downtown Chilliwack, same spot as the old Chaos & Solace. Service was quick, several guest taps as I suppose they're just finding their footing with brewing beers. Neither amazing nor bad, simply average, though pretty easy to reach as it's right downtown and not way out in the farmlands like the other Chilliwack brewery's tasting room.“

“They’ve taken over from Chaos & Solace, and reportedly are still trying to ramp up production. Still the same grungy interior. When I visited, there were only three beers on tap, and all were uncarbonated - the bartender thankfully acknowledged the problem and refunded me my money. Let’s hope they figure things out. I will revisit next time I’m in Chilliwack.“

“Nice, semi-modern tasting room in the middle of farm country with plenty of seating. A dozen or so beers on tap. Flights of 4 available for $9++. Beer quality is okay, but nothing special. Service is decent. Nothing special, but worth a stop if you're out this way.“

“Set way out on the edge of Chilliwack in an industrial area this is a standard tasting room setup. Clean and comfortable enough. Many beers are pretty good and they were pretty chill about setting up tabs or doing flights. Seems like 10 taps are usually available. Nice stop though very far from anything.“

“A nice front end taproom in a working brewery. Very quiet and service was pleasant. Not much new in the beers so if you had them all you may only find one. They do cheap flights, but single tasters are expensive. No Wifi.“

Sardis Liquor Store (Beer Store)
“A large place in a strip mall that has some nice surprises. A pretty good selection of local beer and cider, check dates though some are pretty old. Better than anything for many miles. Prices are good with a discount on large purchases and free ice. If you are on the way to the interior this is the last good stop. If not, stop anyways, they have a few gems.“

“Visited here for dinner while on vacation. nice casual kind of upscale corporate type restaurant. Had outdoor seating, which was nice. Beer selection is not huge, but have about a dozen or so craft selections including a few brewed exclusively for them by Kamloops. Food was pretty solid, lots of choices, priced about right. Servicee was friendly, but just a tad slow. Not a beer destination, but a good solid restaurant.“

Sardis Liquor Store (Beer Store)
“Visited here while on vacation in mind-August ’16. Store is part of a mall, the entrance is outdoors though. Typical retail liquor store with a huge walk-in beer cooler. The cooler easily has over 250 different Canadian, mostly BC, bombers. Plenty of six packs and a few singles here and there. Do not see much of any US craft, but I was looking for Canadian, so I was pleased. Pleasantly surprised at the checkout when the cashier handed us a big empty plastic bag and directed us to the ice cooler to fill it up with free ice! It may be this way at every store, who knows, but we thought it was great!“
