Black Art Draft Beer Available

Black Art Draft Beer to Be Imported Into United States

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - September 9, 2009) - Black Art Beverage, Inc. ("Black Art") (PINKSHEETS: BLVI) is pleased to announce the availability of Black Art Gold and Dark draft beer for the Oktoberfest season and into 2010. Draft product will be delivered in non-returnable kegs which will provide greater flexibility for penetration of the brand into key markets. This container was chosen for the following reasons:

--  Black Art will be able to be marketed to areas that would
    traditionally be outside the sales footprint for an emerging brand.
    
--  The weight advantage of the keg means 25% more beer can be shipped in
    each container offering a reduction in per-liter shipping costs and
    increased margin per unit.
    
--  No return shipments, no theft losses of conventional kegs, or
    additional storage and administrative fees associated with traditional
    returnable kegs.
    

Ras Moses, President of Black Art Importers, commented, "We are very pleased to be able to have draft beer available in the United States. The growth of any brand is reliant on both the retail market segment and the restaurant on premise segment to become truly successful. Black Art is now able to grow in key cities like New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Miami, and other metropolitan markets where storage space is a premium and draft beer is an absolutely necessity for sales and brand development."
