Monty’s Brewery have launched their fantastic summer brew, Monty’s Desert Rats, at their Visitor Centre in Montgomery.

The brew is launched every year in June and runs through the summer months, with every pint sold a 5p donation is given to SSAFA, The Armed Forces Charity (Soldier, Sailor, Air Force and Families Association). This year the launch at The Monty’s Brewery Visitor Centre, Montgomery was attended by some very special guests.

Henry Montgomery, Grandson of the great General Montgomery, pulled the first pint and SSAFA volunteers had a training session and lunch before Desert Rats was served up.

Russ Honeyman, Commercial Director for Monty’s said: “As an ex-RAF person myself, we are pleased to be able to do our bit for SSAFA. We donate so that SSAFA can help support serving personnel, veterans and their families and this small donation is our way of helping that great organisation.

“We also produced 1000 limited edition bottles this year to promote SSAFA. Along with our donation to the upkeep of Offa’s Dyke National Trail from the sales of our beer “Best Offa”, we would hope lots of people get to benefit in some way or another.”

Philip Williams the Divisional Secretary for SSAFA for Montgomeryshire, added: “We are hugely grateful to Russ and Pam for their continued support; many ex-servicemen and their families in need benefit from their generosity and the beer is really good too!”
