MPs and guests got a taste for an award winning Stoke-on-Trent beer as the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) held a reception in the Palace of Westminster.
Plum Porter from Titanic Brewery was among the beers showcased at the prestigious House of Commons event.
Titanic Managing Director Keith Bott was on hand to talk to MPs about Plum Porter after being invited to the event by Stoke-on-Trent North MP Ruth Smeeth.
“We are proud of the success of Titanic Brewery and the way they have grown a thriving business in Stoke-on-Trent North,” said Ruth Smeeth.
“Plum Porter was much in demand at the event and it was a great pleasure for me to welcome Keith to Westminster.”
Plum Porter was a winner in the Champion Beer of Britain awards and is among the most popular beers produced by multi-award winning Titanic Brewery at its base in Callender Place, Burslem.
Titanic Brewery has previously had its beers on tap in the House of Commons’ Strangers Bar and recently brewed an exclusive beer called Olde Maudit for the Parliamentary Serjeant at Arms to serve to his guests.
Keith Bott said: “It was fantastic to be invited to Parliament by Ruth Smeeth and it was the first time I have been able to join her at the House since her election.
“We are very proud of our beers and the way we have grown our brewery and this kind of event helps to showcase Titanic and the thriving British beer industry on an important national stage.”
