Big Rock Brewery Income Trust Announces Monthly Distribution

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2009) - Big Rock Brewery Income Trust (TSX:BR.UN) (the "Trust") is pleased to announce that a distribution of $0.10 per trust unit will be paid on January 15, 2010 to unitholders of record on December 31, 2009. The trust units will commence trading on an exdividend basis December 29, 2009.

The distribution comes as the brewery enters the holiday season; historically the second busiest time for the industry - following the summer peak. As part of its seasonal strategy, Big Rock recently reintroduced McNally's Winter Spice Ale and launched Rock Creek Cranberry Dry Cider, both of which will be available while quantities last.

The Trust is an unincorporated openended limited purpose trust established under the laws of the Province of Alberta. The Trust owns all of the securities of Big Rock Brewery Operations Corp. and Big Rock Brewery Limited Partnership (collectively "Big Rock"), which entitles the Trust to receive all cash flow available for distribution from the business of Big Rock after debt service payments, maintenance capital expenditures and other cash requirements.
