Big Rock Brewery Income Trust Announces Monthly Distribution

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 21, 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 July 15, 2010 to unitholders of record on June 30, 2010. The trust units will commence trading on an ex-dividend basis June 28, 2010.

Earlier this month, Big Rock Brewery introduced the newest member of its family of beers, Gopher Lager - an easy drinking all-malt lager, without the adjuncts found in typical North American beer. Free of any preservatives or additives, Gopher Lager is a crisp, clean brew that's incredibly versatile complimenting most foods. Throughout June, consumers will see Gopher popping up in their favourite drinking establishments and retail stores; that's when they will start rapidly taking over your fridge!

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.
