Manz joins the Canadian brewer from Restaurants Canada, where he has been since early-2013. Reporting in to president & CEO George Croft, Manz brings 19 years of beer sales experience to Brick Brewing. Prior to Restaurants Canada, he held a variety of sales roles with Labatt Breweries of Canada.

He has also spent time with Fosters Wine Estates.

"Jim brings unique strengths to Brick Brewing in terms of identifying new opportunities to maximise the value of rapidly-expanding Waterloo Craft Premium brands and our Seagram Cooler and Cider products" said Croft.

In nine-month figures, announced late last year, Brick Brewing posted a 202% leap in profits on an 8.4% slip in sales.
