Evans Brewing Company Announces Re-Release of Two Award-Winning Beers

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 8, 2016) - Evans Brewing Company ( OTCQB : ALES ), a producer of award-winning craft beers, today announced the scheduled re-release of two of the company's most honored beers, The Original and the Breakfast Black Pilsner, both of which are expected to be available in the coming weeks in restaurants and retail outlets that carry Evans products. The two beers, which have won a combined 12 international beer competition medals, will also be available in the company's first restaurant, The Public House, expected to open soon in downtown Fullerton, California.

The Original (4.6% ABV 15 IBUs) is a pilsner that was the first beer developed under the Evans name. It has been honored with 5 major beer awards, including a silver medal at the 2012 World Beer Cup, and was rated 92 points by Draft Magazine. One of Evans' most popular releases, The Original is described as agile, flavorful and refreshing -- a beer built for everyday drinking. The Original will be sold in kegs within Evans Brewing's distribution footprint.

The Breakfast Black Pilsner (4.8% ABV 24 IBUs) has been honored with 7 major beer awards, including being named the World's Best Dark Lager at the 2013 World Beer Awards. Despite its dark color, the full-bodied flavor paired with a gentle finish makes it a popular choice for any season. Initially available in kegs, The Breakfast Black Pilsner, rated 84 points by Draft Magazine, is expected to be available in 22 ounce bottles towards the end of the year. 

As Evans Brewing Company expands distribution and prepares for the opening of The Public House, it is also preparing to offer a greater variety of its products for sale. The recently announced pilot brewing system allows the team at the company's Irvine, California brewery to further refine the flavors of its award-winning beers as well as develop new variations for the growing number of craft beer enthusiasts.

"We are pleased to bring back two of the beers that started it all," said Evan Rapport, Chief Operations Officer for Evans Brewing Company. "The Original, as the name implies, was the first beer brewed by Evans. The Breakfast Black, also a multiple award winner, has been one of our most popular beers and a great surprise to most who try it.

"The reintroduction of these two beers is another step as we prepare to increase both the products available under the Evans brand and the number of restaurants and retail outlets where our products are sold. We will update the availability of these beers on our website, www.evansbrewco.com, as their release dates approach," added Mr. Rapport.

In addition to The Original and the Breakfast Black Pilsner, the company currently produces 4 core year-round packaged products, Pollen Nation Honey Blonde Ale, The KrHOPen India Pale Ale, Oaklore Brown Ale, and ChocōLatté Chocolate Porter. Additional Evans branded products, including seasonal beers, special releases and potentially other year-round offerings, are expected be introduced in the future. For updated release dates and to see the full range of Evans branded beers, please visit http://www.evansbrewco.com/thebeer#beer.
