Big Rock Brewery Income Trust Announces Monthly Distribution

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 17, 2010) - 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 March 15, 2010 to unitholders of record on February 26, 2010. The trust units will commence trading on an ex-dividend basis February 24, 2010.

Big Rock, now in its 25th year of brewing operations, appears to have started the New Year on the right foot. January 2010 sales have increased by over 30% over the same month in 2009. Management believes the increase in January sales reflects the brewery's "return to our roots" strategy, which includes a renewed focus on customer service and community support.

The Trust is an unincorporated open-ended 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.
