In honour of the fighting spirit of Pinchgut Brewing Co. co-owner Jason Smith’s young boy Monty, the brewery has produced Monty’s Noble Ale – a Californian Common-style 4.8%ABV beer that will be available from 5 April, 2013.
The little chap whose name appears on the bottle had a rocky start to life, owing to a congenital heart defect. At just seven days old, Monty was rushed to Westmead hospital for emergency surgery. Thanks to the excellent care he received, he’s now perfectly happy and healthy.
Pinchgut Brewing Co will donate a portion of the proceeds of every keg of Monty’s Noble Ale to HeartKids, a charity that provides support, awarenes, advocacy and research into congenital heart disease in children.
If you’d like to try Monty’s Noble Ale, it’ll be on tap at the Nag’s Head Hotel in Glebe, NSW from 5 April and other stockists shortly after that.
