Big Rock Brewery Income Trust Increases Monthly Distribution

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 18, 2009) - 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 October 15, 2009 to unitholders of record on September 30, 2009. The trust units will commence trading on an ex-dividend basis September 25, 2009.

The increase in September's distribution, from the $0.09 paid in the previous eight months, reflected higher earnings and cash from operations during the summer season resulting from a continued focus on sales and Big Rock's return to its community roots.

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. ("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.
