cans from Rexam.

Rexam's SLEEK cans contain the same amount of beer as regular 12oz. cans but
the SLEEK cans are thinner, taller and, well…SLEEKER. Cool Brewery carefully
chose Rexam's SLEEK cans because the unique size and shape makes them stand
out from regular beer cans.

"Cans are one of the fastest growing segments in the Canadian beer market,"
said Andrew Costa, Marketing Manager for Cool Brewery. "We have been very
patient to choose a very unique can to properly present and pour our
affordable, award winning beers. Rexam's distinctive SLEEK can allows our
beers to pour more fluidly and our customers say they prefer the feel of the
SLEEK can in their hands. We wanted a beer can that was different from the
other breweries and Rexam delivered," he concluded.

Cool Brewery will also benefit from the advantages aluminum beer cans deliver
such as durability, portability and UV barrier protection to preserve
freshness. In addition, cans have a recycle rate of more than double other
beverage packages.

Rich Grimley, president and CEO, Rexam BCNA, says the SLEEK can is a great
choice to broaden retail appeal for Cool Beer. "Our 12oz. SLEEK can is the
perfect packaging solution, enabling the brand to attract attention on store
shelves with colorful, reflective graphics while delivering superior
recycling, filling, distribution and retail display economics."

Cool's Millennium Buzz beer is the only all natural hemp beer in Canada and is
brewed with British Columbia's finest hemp, Alberta dark roasted malts and
choice German hops. Stonewall Light is a refreshing all natural light lager
adding a hint of lime to balance the fruity crisp and clean taste. Both beers
have won numerous medals in the Canadian and Ontario Brewing awards and are
available throughout Ontario, Canada.
