VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 14, 2010) - Russell Brewing Company (TSX VENTURE:RB), a producer of premium ales and lagers in Western Canada, recently claimed a silver medal for the Russell Brewmaster Series beer, 'A Wee Angry Scotch Ale' at the 8th annual Canadian Brewing Awards (CBA) in Toronto.

"We are very pleased with the award," said Andrew Harris, President, Russell Breweries Inc. "We released 'A Wee Angry Scotch Ale' in Vancouver, in January 2010, as part of the Russell Brewmaster Series, which is a line-up of limited edition beers that appeals to the trialist beer connoisseur. 'A Wee Angry Scotch Ale' has already gained a strong cult following in Vancouver and continues to grow in demand. In April it won a bronze medal at the World Cup of Beer in Chicago and we are very excited about the silver medal at the Canadian Brewing Awards."

'A Wee Angry Scotch Ale' is brewed with a blend of speciality Scottish malts in the style of a 19th century 90 Shilling Scotch Ale - a strong, dark ale with a dominant malt accent that originated in Edinburgh. 'A Wee Angry Scotch Ale' is available in British Columbia in 650ml bottles at private and BC Government Liquor Stores. To locate a retailer, go to: http://www.bcliquorstores.com/product/878009.
