Olympic Champion Jon Montgomery and Old Tomorrow announce Manitoba launch of new craft beer celebrating Jon's historic "Golden Ride"

Monty's Golden Ryed Ale and Canadian Pale Ale now available from Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries

TORONTO, Jan. 28, 2016 /CNW/ - Ontario craft beer company Old Tomorrow and Jon Montgomery, Olympic Gold Medalist and host of The Amazing Race Canada, have announced a high-spirited collaboration in launching new beers into Manitoba.

A proud Canadian from Russell, Manitoba, Jon captured the nation's heart with his historic skeleton victory, topped off with a spontaneous celebration with his second passion - a pitcher of beer.  

In this ground-breaking alliance, Jon and Old Tomorrow created Monty's Golden Ryed Ale, a handcrafted ale aged in rye whisky and oak. This mellow, easy-drinking beer celebrates Jon's iconic "golden ride" with a laid back flavour with subtle notes of honey and vanilla.  Monty's joins Old Tomorrow's Canadian Pale Ale (CPA), a full bodied approachable beer designed specifically for Canadian tastes with a clean smooth  finish. CPA won best beer at Session Toronto Festival, Bronze at Ontario Brewing Awards and is now in the top 10% of Ontario craft beers.

"There's no better way to celebrate life's victories than with a nice tall cold one," said Montgomery. "I've been thrilled to work with Old Tomorrow to create Monty's, as we share a deep love for the values that make Canada the greatest country in the world. Their approach to making distinctive kick-ass craft beer reflects this love affair in every way possible."

"Monty's is true to Jon's Prairie roots, reflecting his easy going personality," says Ian Macdonald Old Tomorrow co-founder.   "We're into celebrating Canadian greatness and Jon is a true modern day hero."

Ian Macdonald will be in Manitoba February 1-3.
