Today will see beer from the Waen Brewery of Newtown in Powys being served on the Strangers Bar in the Palace of Westminster. Their beer, "First of the Summer Waen" is the last brew of that beer for this season but is a favourite of the local Liberal Democrat MP Lembit Opik who has helped support his local brewery by getting their beers into Parliament.
The Waen Brewery was set up earlier this year by Sue and John Haywood and supplies both bottled and cask ale.
First of the Summer Waen is described as "a 4.2% summer beer, full of fruity flavour and a touch of wheat". As this is the last brew of this beer until the Spring, "Last of the Summer Waen" may be a better name!
For those of you wishing to try beers from the Waen Brewery, they will be at the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society Winter Fair on Monday 30th November and Tuesday 1st December at the Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells.
