Tell us new rules for the Southern Man, win brews with a new view

134 years ago, rugged Southern Men roamed the Mainland prairies and would religiously swig from their bottle of Speight’s after a tough day of clearing gorse, lambing ewes, breaking in horses, tilling soil and mining. And it’s exactly the same down there today. Of course, New Zealanders hate change, but there comes a time when it’s unavoidable, so the Speight’s box is getting a bit of a spruce up. And what better image to signify the Pride of the South than the tussock-clad fields of the Lindis Pass.
