Limited ("Brick" or the "Company") (TSX: BRB), Ontario's largest Canadian-owned brewery, today announced that its craft beer division, Waterloo Brewing Co. took home seven awards from Monde Selection in Belgium. Monde Selection is the internationally recognized standard of consumer product excellence, providing quality ratings in all consumer categories including beer.

"This year every style of beer from our craft brewing division was awarded a gold or silver medal; which can be compared to a restaurant achieving the prestige and excellence of two or three Michelin stars," said Bill Henry, Director of Quality and Logistics.
