Rare and beautifully crafted gold has just been discovered in the West Coast – in the form of beautiful beer. We celebrate Monteith’s two outstanding gold awards received in last week’s Monde Selection Awards in Budapest
“All that is gold does not glitter” - J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring.
Well it might not glitter, Mr Tolkien, but it glistens, fizzes and refreshes.
And it goes by the name of Monteith’s – a West Coast beer brand that scooped up two awards at the annual Monde Selection Awards in Budapest last week.
The new Monteith’s Brewer’s Series RIPA Red IPA picked up a Grand Gold at the prestigious awards with an outstanding average score of 90-100%. But before this had time to even sink in for the Monteith’s team, the Monteith’s Pointers Pale Ale took out a Gold with an average score of 80-89%.
Tony Mercer, Head Brewer at Monteith’s, is blown away by the news and believes these awards prove their brews really are of “gold” standard in every sense of the word.
“All the brews entered from around the world are analysed and taste tested alongside each other. Any quality faults, in taste, clarity and foam, for example, would mean you fail to get any rating. It goes to show that our new Monteith’s brews succeeded on all fronts.”
Founded in 1961, the Monde Selection Awards test over 2200 products from 80 countries – an amazing achievement for Monteith’s and their superb brews.
You can get your hands on these brilliant brews at your local Liquorland – see them below.
And while we're on the topic of the wonders of Monteiths – their Beer Back Gurantee is still in full swing – yet another testament to their commitment to the brew. The Monteith’s Beer Back Guarantee is just what it sounds like. If you try a Monteith's brew and love it, you can keep it. However, in the unlikely event you try one and it is not quite your cup of tea, you can claim a replacement Monteith’s brew – no questions asked.
Buy any Monteith’s 500ml bottle, 6-pack or 12-pack and if you drink one bottle and discover it’s not for you, you can claim a replacement Monteith’s product by going to the Monteith's website. Follow the simple validation process, making sure to include a proof of purchase, and the Monteith’s Brewery team will send you a voucher for a different Monteith’s brew of your choosing.
