Waterloo Brewing Co. Unveils Mix Packs

KITCHENER, Ontario — Waterloo Brewing Co., the craft brewing division of Brick Brewing Co. Limited (TSX: BRB), today unveiled the first of its new line of craft beer mix packs. These Small Batch Brews will feature two traditional Waterloo craft brews and one seasonal specialty.

The first pack will include Authentic Amber, Classic Pilsner and the seasonal specialty, Iron Horse Bock – a golden, pleasantly hoppy Spring bock beer. The name and packaging of Iron Horse Bock honour the railroad roots and worker pride of the Company’s hometown Waterloo, Ontario.

“The formation of Waterloo Brewing Co. recognizes our Company’s roots as Ontario’s original craft brewery. The history of our Company dates back to our pioneer brewery in Formosa, Ontario which was founded in 1870 just three years after Confederation” offered George Croft, President and CEO. “We wanted to give the hardworking people of Ontario a family of highly crafted products without the pretense that often accompanies craft and imported beers. We simply put every ounce of effort we have into these brews, because we know that’s what people who care about their work do.”

“Iron Horse Bock is the first of our Small Batch Brews and offers a quality you can see and taste” declared Russell Tabata, Chief Technical Officer. “We weren’t interested in crafting a beer for palette gymnastics. We wanted exceptional quality ingredients and brewing to yield a beer worthy of your hard day’s work. Iron Horse Bock delivers just that.”

Waterloo Brewing Co. Small Batch Brews are available at the LCBO across Ontario. Over the course of the year, new Small Batch Brews will be introduced to celebrate the various seasons.
