Finalist Champion Beer of Britain 2019

We can finally announce that Monty's Sunshine was a finalist in this year’s CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain competition held at Olympia. The whole team were thrilled with this as Sunshine was the very first brew we made over 10 years ago, and is still our biggest selling beer.

Sunshine has stood the test of time, with its floral and citrus aromas and fruity flavour. It goes great with spicy food, steak or cheese. Just a great all rounder.
