Big Rock Brewery Income Trust Announces Monthly Distribution

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2008) - Big Rock Brewery Income Trust (TSX:BR.UN) (the "Trust") wishes to announce that a distribution of $0.09 per trust unit will be paid on May 15, 2008 to unitholders of record on April 30, 2008. The trust units will commence trading on an ex-dividend basis April 28, 2008. The Board of Directors of Big Rock Brewery Operations Corp., the administrator of the Trust, unanimously resolved to decrease the monthly distribution from $0.13 per unit to $0.09 per unit in order to align the monthly distribution more closely with the current distributable cash from operations and to retain additional cash flow from operations to reinvest in growth.

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 Limited Partnership ("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.
