Anderson Valley and Wild Turkey will continue to work together in the coming
months on a variety of exciting promotional opportunities to engage fans and
introduce them to the quality and authenticity of Bourbon barrel aged
products. Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout draft and bottle product will be
available in 22 oz. bottles in several states including: California, New
York, Oregon, Washington, Texas, Massachusetts, Colorado, Kentucky, Ohio,
Florida, Virginia, Georgia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and New Jersey
amongst others by the end of June.

This once draft-only product was released in the fall 2012 as part of an
exclusive partnership between Anderson Valley Brewing Company and Wild Turkey®
Bourbon. As part of the partnership, Anderson Valley Brewing Company has been
using repurposed American oak barrels from the famed bourbon brand's Wild
Turkey Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, to age the award-winning Barney
Flats Oatmeal Stout.

"The bourbon stout has been popular since its debut and is the result of a
great partnership," said Jimmy Russell, Wild Turkey Master Distiller.
"Anderson Valley Brewing takes pride and care in crafting their beer; it's
similar to the approach we take with our bourbon. Together we produced a great
craft beer and are excited to get it in the hands of more folks!"

"The partnership with the Bourbon Hall of Fame Russell family and Wild Turkey
has been tremendously exciting," said Trey White, Anderson Valley owner and
CEO. "Collaboration on this bourbon stout is just the beginning. We look
forward to continuing our relationship with the Russell's and exploring new
frontiers in barrel aged craft beer."

Anderson Valley's Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout  is aged to perfection for three
months. The resulting beer is deep ebony in hue with a beautiful mahogany
head, an aroma of fresh-baked bread, toffee, and espresso mingling with the
woody vanilla notes of Bourbon whiskey and the rich roasted flavors wrapped
with Bourbon.
