Jim Brickman responds to lawsuit, denies wrongdoing



    WATERLOO, ON, June 8 /CNW/ - Jim Brickman, the Founder and former
Executive Chairman of Brick Brewing Co. Limited (the "Company"), today
released an initial response to the lawsuit launched by the Company alleging
that Mr. Brickman misused corporate resources. The 56-year-old brewer, now
retired, vowed to fight the lawsuit which he believes to be entirely without
merit.
    "I am surprised and disappointed that my former colleagues on Brick
Brewing's Board of Directors have made these inaccurate and irresponsible
claims. This lawsuit appears aimed at causing me and my family embarrassment
and undue expense. The Company made no attempt to discuss its supposed
concerns with me beforehand. Instead, it blindsided me with a suit filled with
inaccuracies and then press-released this ill-founded claim. The Company seems
to be moving far from its community roots to a world of high priced lawyers
and hardball litigation."
    Mr. Brickman continued: "I am proud to have played a pioneering role in
the Canadian craft beer business and in building one of Ontario's largest
Canadian-owned breweries. I always acted in Brick's best interest throughout
my many years there, working hard to ensure the Company's survival and
success. This lawsuit is an enormous waste of shareholder money and yet
another distraction from the Company's business of brewing and selling great
beer."
    Mr. Brickman denies all of the allegations of wrongdoing and will
communicate further with the public once the lawsuit has been dismissed and he
has been vindicated.
