Laker Beer Wins Big at 2015 Canadian Brewing Awards

KITCHENER, ON--(Marketwired - June 18, 2015) - Brick Brewing Co. Limited ("Brick" or the "Company") (TSX: BRB), Ontario's largest Canadian-owned brewery, today announced that they were awarded gold for Laker Light and silver for Laker Lager at the recent Canadian Brewing Awards.

"The two most popular beer styles in Canada are Light Lager and North American Lager. The biggest beer brands in Canada all fall into one of those two categories," said Sean Dennis, Director of Marketing. "Laker Lager and Laker Light truly are multi-award winning beers with gold and silver medals from both the Canadian Brewing Awards and Ontario Brewing Awards providing proof of what we've really known all along, that Laker is award-winning quality and the best beer deal in Ontario. Period."

"The Canadian Brewing Awards get more competitive every year," said Russell Tabata, Chief Operating Officer. "This year there were over two hundred different breweries entering with over twelve hundred different beers. Our brewery's commitment to quality made quite a statement this year with Laker Light winning gold and Laker Lager winning silver, both beating out some formidable competitors."

"We have always been the brewery on the side of the hardworking people of Ontario," said George Croft, President and CEO. "We don't have major league sports sponsorships or Hollywood-style advertising; we just make great beer that saves people a lot of money. Hopefully these gold and silver medals give people a reason to try Laker. Your taste buds and your wallet won't regret it."
