Waterloo Brewing Co. Small Batch Brews Honoured at 2016 Canadian Brewing Awards

KITCHENER, ON--(Marketwired - June 01, 2016) - Brick Brewing Co. Limited ("Brick" or the "Company") (TSX: BRB), Ontario's largest Canadian-owned brewery, today announced that its craft brewing division, Waterloo Brewing Co. took home Canadian Brewing Awards for two of its seasonal Small Batch Brews; Waterloo Spiced Dunkel and Waterloo Smoked Applewood Roggenbier.

"The cornerstone of our craft brewing history has always been our Waterloo Dark, the most popular and highest awarded dark lager in Ontario. It's brewed with four ingredients -- hops, malt, yeast and water to keep things natural and simple," began Sean Dennis, Director of Marketing Brick Brewing. "The development of these seasonal brands is certainly more complex and delivers against a very distinct and different craft-beer experience, making these awards that much more special for us."

"Over the last three years we've introduced several Small Batch Brews which are designed to complement the tastes of the seasons," continued Bill Henry, Director of Brewing, Quality and Logistics at Brick Brewing. "These recent Canadian Brewing Awards are great proof of the quality and distinction of the seasonal craft beers our brewery is now producing. Last Fall and Winter we shared our Waterloo Spiced Dunkel and Waterloo Smoked Applewood Roggenbier with beer drinkers in Ontario and you can be sure we'll have lots of German Beer Heritage to share in the future."

The Waterloo family of craft beers has earned an incredible 38 local and International brewing awards since 2008.
