Big Rock Brewery Inc. Announces Quarterly Dividend

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 20, 2011) - Big Rock Brewery Inc. (TSX:BR) ("Big Rock" or the "the Brewery") is pleased to announce that a dividend of $0.20 per common share will be paid on January 16, 2012 to shareholders of record on December 31, 2011. The shares will commence trading on an ex-dividend basis on December 28, 2011.

This is the fourth dividend declared by Big Rock following its conversion from an income trust to a corporation earlier this year. Dividends are paid from after tax cash flows, whereas distributions by the trust were paid from operating cash flows and were deductible for tax purposes prior to its conversion. The decrease in the dividend levels compared to 2010 is directly attributable to this change in taxation.
