Giles Hawkins began brewing when he took over the Albert Inn
The landlord of a Devon pub is to have his beer served in the Houses of Parliament.
Giles Hawkins, who runs the Albert Inn in Bridgetown, Totnes, began brewing beer in a back room of the pub a year ago.
Albert Ale is made to a traditional recipe, using locally-sourced barley.
Six barrels have now been shipped to the Commons. It will be served in the Strangers' Bar as one of the guest beers until it runs out.
Mr Hawkins, who took over the pub a year ago, said: "I've always wanted to brew beer but never had the space before.
"We bought some second-hand brewing equipment and taught ourselves.
"It took us six months to finalise the brew, getting pub regulars to taste it and give their opinion.
"Some of the more senior locals in our back bar have been fondly known as the Bridgetown Parliament for their holding court and thrashing out the issues of the day over a pint or two.
"It struck me as fitting to get our beer served in the real parliament."
Mr Hawkins said he had contacted Parliament's main beer supplier who agreed to distribute the ale.
