Big Rock Brewery Income Trust Announces Monthly Distribution

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 20, 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 September 15, 2010 to unitholders of record on August 31, 2010. The trust units will commence trading on an ex-dividend basis August 27, 2010.

The distribution follows the Trust's announcement of its second quarter results, which saw growth trends level off as a result of damp weather in the west – Big Rock's largest territory. However, sales volumes for the first six months still grew by just over 10%, compared to last year. Despite the unusually rainy conditions, it remains a very busy time for the brewery, having just wrapped up the launch of its newest brew, Gopher Lager. 

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.
