Big Rock Brewery Income Trust Announces Monthly Distribution

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 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 January 15, 2011 to unitholders of record on December 31, 2010. The trust units will commence trading on an ex-dividend basis December 29, 2010.

The distribution comes as the brewery enters the holiday season; historically the second busiest time for the industry. Big Rock was pleased to re-introduce McNally's Winter Spice Ale for the third consecutive year. In previous years, Winter Spice has sold out before the end of the holiday season. As a result, management has increased this year's volume in an effort to meet consumer demand. Winter Spice is available while supplies last.
