A STOURBRIDGE brewery's ale has been on sale in the Houses of Parliament.

Printworks Brewery’s Caleb’ Pale Ale spent time as a guest beer in Parliament last week after Stourbridge MP Suzanne Webb asked for the tipple to go into Westminster’s Bars.

Described as ‘light & crisp with a citrus kick & bitter finish’ – the brewery said it was a perfect session beer with flavours of grapefruit & orange.

The ale is brewed in the heart of Lye at the Windsor Castle pub.

Suzanne joined the brewery’s director Emily Sadler and her husband Gareth - the brewer - to see the beer on tap at The Strangers’ Bar.

Suzanne presented the couple with a commemorative certificate prepared by the APPG for Beer which they will take back to Lye.

She said: “It’s a great day as far as I’m concerned when a Stourbridge beer is on sale in the Houses of Parliament.

“This is a great brewery making a quality product, investing in its community and employing people. If a stint in The Strangers’ Bar helps with sales, then I will have helped a local company move a step forward.

Emily and Gareth said: “We were delighted that Caleb Ale was selected for The Strangers’ Bar and grateful to Suzanne Webb for making it happen.

“Our beers are inspired by our family heritage as well as a passion for craft beer and it’s a great honour to see our small brewery beer being served in Parliament and enjoyed by MPs.”

And Barry Watts from the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) added: “Raising a pint of Caleb in Parliament was a fantastic way to celebrate their success.

“Independent brewers such as Printworks play a vital role in supporting local community pubs and creating jobs in the area."
