Beer News: Monteith’s Launches new IPA

To honour 150 years of quality brewing on the West Coast, Monteith’s has launched new Phoenix Indian Pale Ale with flavours of fresh cut grass, passionfruit and spice

We just can’t get enough of IPAs. Not “we” as in the Liquorland Toast team (although that too), but “we” as in beer drinkers across New Zealand and pretty much the rest of the Western World. This hop-forward style of beer keeps growing in popularity, so it was a natural choice for West Coast brewers Monteith’s to launch a second IPA to give fans a new option.

Made with a fusion of American Simco, Chinook and Citra hops, Monteith’s Phoenix IPA has a great hop-to-malt balance, and takes its name from the original Phoenix Brewery, established by Stewart Monteith in Reefton on the South Island’s West Coast back in 1868.

 “We’re really excited about Phoenix IPA hitting the shelves,” says Monteith’s Brewing Co. Head Brewer Rob Marshall. “It’s brewed with a clean crisp malt base and the hops shine through with a heady aroma of pine and citrus. On the first sip, you’ll experience the sensation of freshly cut grass complemented by the subtle flavour of passionfruit, with a touch of spice to round off this brew’s unique nature.”

Monteith’s Phoenix IPA (5.0% ABV), 12 pack 330ml, RRP $24.99 at your local Liquorland now.
