Russell Brews Belgian Style Beer as Part of Co-Packing Agreement With Chambar Restaurant

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire – Dec. 17, 2009) - Russell Brewing Company (TSX VENTURE:RB), a producer of premium craft beer in Western Canada, began shipping 6 pack bottles of Chambar Ale this week as part of its co-packing agreement with Chambar Restaurant to produce a Belgian style beer for the take home market.

Co-crafted by Chambar executive chef and owner Nico Schuermans and long time brewmaster Mark Simpson, Chambar Ale uses a combination of European and Moroccan spices with a base recipe created from organic locally sourced malt and several variations of yeast strains. Schuerman's Belgian pedigree has played a large role in the beer's flavour profile and style and Simpson's decades of expertise helped create a beer perfect for pairing with good food and dear friends.

Chambar Ale is now available in 6 pack bottles in Vancouver through select restaurants and boutique liquor retailers including: Brewery Creek (3045 Main Street, Vancouver), Steamworks (375 Water Street, Vancouver), Broadway Cold Beer & Wine Store (1159 Broadway, Vancouver) and Taylors Crossing (1015 Marine Drive, North Vancouver).

"It is exciting to be working with Russell, they are also a hardworking family business that are committed to producing a quality product," said Karri Schuermans, Owner - Chambar Restaurant. "It is a pleasure to embark on a partnership with people that are hedonists at heart, risk takers and have also taken on considerable growth in a short period of time. We look forward to a long prosperous relationship together!"
