Kitchener, March 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KITCHENER, ON, March 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)
Today, Waterloo Brewing, the premium craft beer division of Brick Brewing Co. Limited (“Brick” or the “Company”) (TSX: BRB), continued their leadership in the radler category in Ontario. The new Waterloo Brewing Radler Sampler Pack(6 x 473ml) is made up of new Raspberry Radler, the uber-refreshing Citrus Radler and the best-selling Grapefruit Radler.
“When we launched Waterloo Grapefruit Radler it took the beer market by storm,” said Jim Manz, Director, Commercial, Waterloo Brewing. “That first summer, our Grapefruit Radler was the best-selling new product at the LCBO and it’s been a top seller ever since - despite numerous competitors entering the category.”
“We have worked hard to bring true craft to the radler style,” said Russell Tabata, Chief Operating Officer. “Most of the radlers out there use added flavours, but we are committed to doing things right so we use real juice. It costs a little more and it’s technically more complicated to produce, but you can absolutely taste and see the quality difference. We bring that same commitment to our new, expertly crafted, Raspberry Radler. Nobody does radlers better!”
The Waterloo Radler 6-can Sampler Pack contains two cans of Waterloo Grapefruit, Citrus and Raspberry Radler and is available at the LCBO, The Beer Store and select grocery stores for $16.50. While quantities last.
