Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk joined in the Beer Day Britain celebrations and raised a glass to the nation’s favourite drink.
Mr Danczuk and his Parliamentary colleagues enjoyed a pint at The Britannia Arms, a pop up pub in the grounds of the historic Jewel Tower opposite the House of Commons, on Wednesday.
MPs and peers were able to sample beer and pub food from across the UK and toast Britain’s beer heritage.
The Jewel Tower is where, in the 19th century, the pint was officially recognized as the legal measure for draught beer.
Many of the most famous beer styles brewed around the world were invented in Britain, including Pale Ale, India Pale Ale and Stout.
Mr Danczuk said: “Britain has a proud history when it comes to producing quality beer.
“It’s important to celebrate this heritage as a reminder of how valuable our local pubs are.”
