KITCHENER, ON - (Marketwired - May 12, 2016) - Brick Brewing Co. Limited ("Brick" or the "Company") (TSX: BRB), Ontario's largest Canadian-owned brewery, today announced that they will once again partner with Pizza Pizza, Canada's leading pizza chain, in a joint promotional venture. For a limited time, inside specially marked 24 pack bottle packs of Laker Light, customers will find a coupon for a free slice of pizza.
"Laker Light 24 bottle packs are only $30.95 including deposit. On average, that's as much as a $7 savings over regular priced beer," said Sean Dennis, Director of Marketing at Brick Brewing Company. "The addition of a free slice of pizza inside specially marked packs of Laker Light truly is a testament of our commitment to continually give Ontario beer drinkers the best beer-deal in Ontario."
"Laker Light is a multi-award winning beer at both the Canadian and Ontario Brewing Awards," said George Croft, President and CEO of Brick Brewing Company. "While we understand how important price is to beer drinkers, awards like these will also validate that the taste and quality of Laker Light is second to none. Partnering with an iconic Canadian company like Pizza Pizza that's committed to always serving the best food, made especially for you, really delivers great added value for our beer drinker."
"A hot slice of pizza and an ice cold beer is a winning combination," said Pat Finelli, Chief Marketing Officer for Pizza Pizza Limited. "And when it's brought to you by two great Canadian-owned companies, and the pizza is free, well that's even better."
