KITCHENER, ON--(Marketwired - February 11, 2016) - Brick Brewing Co. Limited ("Brick" or the "Company") (
"Beer prices in Ontario continue to increase, making it more and more difficult for a lot of beer drinkers on a budget," stated George Croft, President and CEO of Brick Brewing. "Though regulations won't allow us to return to the buck-a-beer pricing that made Laker beer famous, we know people are working harder than ever and if we can help them stretch a dollar or two, then we're going to do that as best we can," added Croft.
"The average selling price for a 15 can pack in Ontario for other comparable value beer brands is $23.95 making our Laker brands much easier to afford," said Jim Manz, Director of Sales. "Laker is made by a Canadian-owned brewery so the money we make, and the jobs we create stay right here in Ontario. Laker has won numerous beer awards, and now with this low price on our 15-can packs, Laker again reaffirms its position as the best beer deal in Ontario. Period. And this is not a temporary offer. Ontario beer drinkers can expect this great value for all of 2016," added Manz.
Laker Lager, Light and Ice 15-can packs are available at The Beer Store for the low price of $21.95.
