LITTE Kinver Brewery was given a big seal of approval after their beer was featured at the Houses of Parliament.

The brewery's popular ale Kinver Edge was on offer as a guest beer at the infamous Stranger's Bar where the drink proved a big hit with MP's.

It's one of the favourite tipples preferred by South Staffordshire MP Gavin Williamson who recommended the ale.

As a result, five barrels of Kinver Edge was consumed by MPs with Mr Williamson insisting: "It proved to be incredibly popular and went down extremely well. It's a very drinkable beer and always leaves you wanting more."

Situated at Britch Farm off Rocky Wall on the outskirts of Kinver, the brewery has only been in existence since 2004.

Director and partner Ian Davies admitted to being chuffed that Kinver Edge was chosen as a guest beer and explained: "Myself and fellow director Dave Kelly met with Gavin Williamson ahead of Kinver Country Fayre at 'Horse and Dray Day' where he said he would put Kinver Edge on the list of guest beers at the Houses of Parliament.

"It's great for us as we're only a small brewery and it really helps put us on the map. Kinver Edge is a great real ale, which is the only part of the drinks market which is doing well at the moment."
