BOONE, N.C., July 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Appalachian Mountain Brewery, Inc. (OTC:HOPS), announced today it has engaged the professional services of Bongiovanni & Associates, PA and Green Tree Financial Group, Inc. to audit its financial statements to execute its growth plans by becoming fully reporting to the US Securities Exchange Commission. This strategic move by AMB to meet eligibility standards aimed at improving the information available to investors will provide greater transparency through verification certified by the auditor in preparation to file a registration statement and to qualify the company to up list its shares to a venture stage marketplace such as OTC Market Group's OTCQB.
