Monty’s Brewery is based just a short distance from the ancient castle town of Montgomery, on the Powys - Shropshire border.
The growth of Monty’s from a small, family run, start up to an established enterprise, exporting beer all over the world, has been a fast paced and exciting journey.
It was in June 2008 that the first seeds were sown by owners Pam and Russ Honeyman. Over a quiet pint and Sunday lunch they pondered, ‘Shall we build a brewery?’. Soon after, Pam was off to Brewlab at Sunderland University, returning back with a plan and a recipe.
It was in January 2009 when the first casks were produced. It was only the third brew before Monty’s Sunshine started to get the recognition it still enjoys today, winning the “Darlington Spring Thing CAMRA Beer Festival”.
Now with over sixteen regular, seasonal and specials brews, Monty’s has firmly established itself as Mid Wales’ premier brewery. The Visitor Centre on the edge of the town of Montgomery is well worth a visit.
The brewery has been featured on BBC's Countryfile, in beer books written by Ben McFarland, Pete Brown and Roger Pritz all great beer writers.
Monty's is SALSA plus Beer accredited, all bottling and kegging is carried out at their main production facility in Hen-domen, so Monty's has full control of the process.
