Multi-award winning Monty’s Brewery is bouncing back from the Covid-19 epidemic by rebuilding business with exports, supermarkets contracts and growing online sales, politicians were told on Monday.
The Montgomery-based brewery welcomed Secretary of State for Wales, Simon Hart and Montgomeryshire MP, Craig Williams.
The visit coincided with Monty’s Brewery preparing to ship its first order of gluten free beers to the biggest gluten free distributor in Holland, a contract secured recently.
The politicians discussed the UK Government’s Levelling Up Fund plans to bring business and other opportunities to Mid Wales.
Russ Honeyman, Monty’s Brewery’s commercial director, said: “It was a pleasure to show the Secretary of State for Wales and Craig Williams around our brewery and to talk about our plans for export and the future.
“They showed great interest in our plans. Of course, after talks, we had a taster and tried our summer beer Desert Rats, where we donate 5p a pint to SSAFA, The Armed Forces Charity. The Secretary of State was very impressed with that as an ex-Army man!”
Mr Williams said: “Monty’s is one of Montgomeryshire’s biggest success stories and one of Wales’ fastest growing breweries.
“We were able to discuss their very exciting plans for future growth - including the imminent addition of a new canning line at the brewery – as well as how UK Government investment into Mid Wales can directly benefit them and many other Montgomeryshire businesses.”
Monty’s Brewery is a member of MWT Cymru, which represents more than 600 tourism and hospitality businesses across Powys, Ceredigion and the Meirionnydd region of Gwynedd.
