The School of Big Rock is Back in Session!

Registration is now open for the Fall semester of the Big Rock Lecture Series.

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 23, 2011) - Big Rock Brewery (TSX:BR) is opening their doors to the public for two new semesters at Big Rock University. Each semester (Fall/Winter) the Big Rock Lecture series showcases four different lectures from several University of Calgary professors with all the proceeds going directly towards eight University of Calgary undergraduate scholarships. You can attend the ones that interest you the most or you can register for the whole semester. Plus, no lecture is complete without a gourmet dinner from the Big Rock Grill and a couple of Big Rock beers. Naturally.

To kick off the Fall 2011 semester Big Rock is pleased to have Blake Nill, Dino's Head Football Coach and Defensive Coordinator speak on, "University Athletics, the Proving Ground for Excellence". Nill's speech is guaranteed to inspire the inner athlete in all of us!
