Monteith’s Single Source, RRP $35 per dozen
UV rays aren’t just the enemies of our skin, but also of a good beer, which is why you’ll find this light lager in a black bottle. Brewed from Charmay barley grown on a Rakaia farm and Southern Cross hops from a Motueka garden, Monteith’s Single Source balances bitterness, citrus and spice, with a sharp, dry finish. “I guess what makes this beer different is that nothing is left to chance,” says head brewer Tony Mercer. “It’s about the best ingredients, the most meticulous and passionate craftsmen, and the best brewing processes.” Want to try it for yourself? You could win a $450 prize pack including one dozen Monteith’s Single Source, a set of Monteith’s glasses and a framed image of the Rakaia fields where the barley for the beer is grown.
