Laker beer partners with Pizza Pizza for a free slice of pizza

    WATERLOO, ON, March 18 /CNW/ - Brick Brewing Company (TSX: BRB) announced
today that it has partnered with Pizza Pizza in a joint promotional venture. A
voucher for a free slice of pizza with the purchase of a slice will be
included in specially marked 24 pack bottles of Laker Lager. The vouchers are
available for a limited time and can be redeemed at all traditional Pizza
Pizza locations in Ontario.
    "Partnering with Pizza Pizza allows Brick Brewing Co, and more
specifically Laker Lager, the opportunity to deliver even more value to
Ontario's beer drinkers," said Sean Dennis, Director of Marketing for Brick
Brewing Company. "Not only do you get Laker beer at the Lowest Legal Price,
you also receive a voucher for a free slice from Canada's number one pizza
chain; pizza and beer the perfect combination," added Dennis.
    "When Laker Lager was presented the Peoples Choice Award at the 2008
Ontario Brewing Awards, it became very clear for us that Ontario beer drinkers
not only recognized an average $10 dollar savings over regular priced beer,
but that Laker also tastes better," said George Croft, President and CEO of
Brick Brewing Company. "This partnership is an example of how two great
Canadian owned companies can come together and offer one fantastic deal to
Ontario beer drinkers." added Croft.
    "We are happy to be partnering with another great Canadian owned and
operated company," said Pat Finelli, Chief Marketing Officer for Pizza Pizza.
"This campaign is a great opportunity to offer Ontarians a little something
extra during these tough economic times," added Finelli.
