Russell Brewing Company, a producer of premium craft beer in Western Canada, launches a new series of small-batch limited release beers. The first in the series is a classic India Pale Ale named - Russell IP'eh! It will be available in draught and 650ml bottles for a limited time.

Only 1,500 bottles will be available for purchase through select specialty beer and wine stores such as Brewery Creek, Darby's Liquor Store, Firefly Fine Wines and Ales and Liberty Wine Merchants in Vancouver.

"Canadians love their IPA's so we chose a name that playfully pays homage to our national affinity with this style of beer," said Andrew Harris, President. "The name of the beer may be cute but the taste is seriously outstanding! Russell IP'eh is a well balanced beer with a true symmetry of bitter and sweet. It is a first beer from our limited edition brew master series."

Russell Brewing Company produces high quality small batch beers to exacting standards. No shortcuts. No preservatives. No pasteurization. Russell uses only the finest Canadian grain, pure Canadian water, imported hops and its own special yeast strain. Russell takes absolute pride in handcrafting unpasteurized premium craft beer for people who love "real" beer.

The Russell Brewing Company in British Columbia and the Fort Garry Brewing Company in Manitoba are wholly owned subsidiaries of Russell Breweries Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RB).
