Politicians and visitors to Parliament are now able to raise a toast with beer from the Potteries.

Titanic Brewery’s Iceberg beer is on tap in the House of Commons for a limited period from 12 September, 2011.

The distinctive light wheat beer will be on sale in the Strangers’ Bar which is a major meeting point between MPs and visitors to Westminster.

Stoke-on-Trent North MP Joan Walley was among the first to raise a toast to the success of her local brewery.

She said: “There is great local pride in the success of Titanic’s award winning beer. This is a wonderful opportunity to promote the very best British beer from Burslem.”

Keith Bott, Managing Director of Titanic Brewery, said: “We are always looking at new ways of promoting our products and are delighted to take advantage of an offer to showcase our beer in the Houses of Parliament.”
