The cask-conditioned St Edmund’s brew won its place on the bar at the House of Commons ‘local’ after being recommended by Bury St Edmunds MP David Ruffley.

This was as part of a scheme run by the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group and the Society of Independent Brewers, which represents more than 700 of the UK’s smaller brewers.

Greene King head brewer John Bexon joined Mr Ruffley to raise a glass of St Edmund’s at the Stranger’s Bar to celebrate the honour. He said: “It’s a great privilege for one of our beers to have made it to the heart of government.”

  • On Greene Kings own brewery website they claim to be the UK's biggest independent brewery. So much for being small!
