  1. Yeh, apparently they’ve already purchased their hops – 100 grams of Pacific Gem, which should see them through their first 12 months.Honestly, I’m surprised it has taken this long. Mac’s must be killing Monteith’s, especially in growth, these days… the Monteith’s brand (besides the shoddy beer) seems pretty stale to me. Good luck to them – I hope they employ a decnt brewer in there somewhere…
