Big Daddy's BBQ Sauce & Spices (PinkSheets:BIGD) is pleased to announce that its brewery division, Sonora Brewery of Phoenix, has won the World Beer Cup 2000 Silver Medal in the English-Style Mild Ale Category. The awards were announced on June 19 in New York. The winning beer is Sonora's Top Down(TM) Classic Red Ale that will soon be bottled and distributed also as Big Daddy's Backyard Brew Red Ale.

"We are extremely proud of Sonora President John Watt and Brewmaster Uwe Boer for their accomplishment with this beer," says Big Daddy's CEO Dan Lloyd Sr. "Our Classic Red Ale was given top marks for technical quality, for its balance, color, aroma and its roasted flavor. It's already popular with Arizona drinkers and we anticipate this award will make it even more so -- the World Beer Cup awards typically boost sales. We also look forward to wider distribution under the Big Daddy's label."
