Monteith's Brewery Company was originally a family owned brewing company until it was bought by DB Breweries. It continued to brew its beers on the West Coast of New Zealand until DB decided that the cost of keeping production there was no longer viable. The Greymouth brewery was closed on 22 March 2001, but reopened four days later following a public outcry.

The beers are now produced in Auckland, and Timaru as well as Greymouth.

Controversy
DB Breweries is currently involved in a legal battle over the exclusive use of the name Radler. DB has trademarked the term "Radler" since 2001. The Society of Beer Advocates have asked Intellectual Property Office (of New Zealand) for the brewery's Radler trademark revoked.

Radler is a style of beer, much as in the same way as Pilsner or Stout.

The issues of this trademark were brought to public attention when a small independent brewery (Green Man ) in Dunedin, Otago released its own Radler (since renamed to Cyclist). A decision on the challenge is not expected until 2010.
