A locally crafted ale was being pulled into glasses at Westminster last week.
Bexley’s Own Beer, brewed in Erith by Bexley Brewery, was on tap in the House of Commons’ in Strangers’ Bar, as part of a scheme to support small brewers and local businesses.
Owners of the brewery Cliff and Jane Murphy were invited to pull a pint of the smooth pale ale, made with a combination of crystal malts and hops.
David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, said: “I am pleased to have been able to support Bexley Brewery, whose parakeet logo is popping up all over London and the south east.
“The company is going from strength to strength, thanks to the variety of beers that they sell. I know that many colleagues flocked to Strangers’ Bar for a pint of award-winning Bexley ale.”
