Kinver Brewery have been invited by the MP for South Staffordshire, Gavin Williamson, to supply beer to thirsty MP's at the Stanger's Bar in the Houses of Parliament, London.

Five barrels of Kinver Edge have been supplied, which are available from Wednesday 12th March 2014. 

The Stranger's Bar

The Strangers' Bar is an exclusive bar within the Palace of Westminster,  home of the House of Commons and of the House of Lords, and the seat of the UK parliament.  The bar is only open to MPs, officers of Parliament, their guests, and members of parliamentary staff, but is not open to members of the public.

The name Strangers refers to those present in parliament who are not members of parliament or staff. Strangers may view parliamentary proceedings from the Stranger's Gallery in the House of Commons.

The Palace of Westminster has been the seat of Parliament for over 900 years.  Kinver Brewery delivered five barrels of beer from the Midlands to wet the appetite of parliament, but previous visitors from the Midlands delivered barrels of gunpowder for Guy Fawkes to blow up the House of Lords in 1605.  The gunpowder conspirators fled from London and were cornered at Holbech House, 6 miles north from Kinver Village, where they were blown up by a stray spark whilst drying out a wet barrel of gunpowder in front of a fire.  The failure of the Gunpowder Plot to blow up the English parliament is celebrated throughout the UK on November 5th with bonfires and firework displays. The Kinver Constitutional Club host a large bonfire and display each year to celebrate the failure of the Midland's conspiracy.

The Parliament of Great Britain was formed one hundred years after the Gunpowder Plot following a treaty signed on 22 July 1706, and ratified in law by Acts of Union passed in 1707 by the Parliament of England and the Parliament of Scotland.

Kinver Brewery are no strangers to the Houses of Parliament,  having previously met Gavin Williamson M.P.  to lobby for the scappping of the Escalator Beer Tax.   Gavin Williamson was presented with the Beer Champion Award for his work to secure the tax cut.
