VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2012) -

Editors Note: There is a photo accompanying this news release.

This week, Russell Brewing Company (TSX VENTURE:RB) released its new super-premium, single-batch beer - Nectar of the Gods Wheat Wine Ale. The entire batch was pre-sold and is currently available in select private retailers in Metro Vancouver.

Nectar of the Gods Wheat Wine Ale is the first barrel-aged beer from Russell Brewing. The beer was carefully aged in Tennessee Whiskey barrels for over four months. The aging process provided the beer with layers of flavour complexity including a fruity-ester character and vanilla-like flavours and tannins. A premium selection of malts were used including over 50% of Wheat Malt and a combination of Pilsner and Munich Malts. The hops were sourced from the USA and France. The US Columbus Hops provide a firm bitterness and the French Strisselspalt Hops offer a lusty black currant flavour and balanced finish. After the barrel-aging, the beer was bottle-conditioned resulting in natural carbonation and sediment. Available in 650ml bottles.

Russell Brewing Company is a premium small-batch brewery located in the Strawberry Hill area of Surrey, British Columbia specializing in brewing high-quality flavourful ales and lagers. Russell Brewing Company in British Columbia and the Fort Garry Brewing Company in Manitoba are wholly owned subsidiaries of Russell Breweries Inc., is a public company trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "RB" (TSX VENTURE:RB). /
