CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- Big Rock Brewery Inc. (TSX: BR) ("Big Rock" or the "Corporation") regrets to announce the passing of its founder and Chairman Emeritus, Mr. Edward McNally ("Ed").
Big Rock, which has become the largest and longest-running independently-owned craft brewery in Canada, was founded by Ed in 1985. His aim was simple - to make great-tasting all-natural beer - and he was often quoted as saying, "to create a masterpiece, no compromise may be tolerated." Prior to embarking on his brewing venture, Ed had already been an accomplished lawyer and barley farmer, two areas of expertise which proved to be valuable in the beer business. Ed's success with Big Rock and in his life in general led to recognition on many fronts. He was awarded both the Order of Canada and the Alberta Centennial Medal in 2005 and was inducted to the Calgary Business Hall of Fame in 2009. Ed was also very involved in the community, including many years of service with organizations such as Junior Achievement and the Alberta Barley Growers.
Big Rock President and Chief Executive Officer, Bob Sartor, expressed his sentiments on behalf of the entire Big Rock team: "Ed leaves behind a legacy larger than life and we will forever be grateful, not only for this great company he created, but also for the lasting impression he has left on the lives of everyone who had the privilege to know him."
