The Rt Hon. Andrea Leadsom MP, Member of Parliament for South Northamptonshire, welcomed the Silverstone Real Ale Brewery to Parliament at the start of the month, continuing her strong support for local beer-making in her constituency.
Following on from previously hosting two other breweries from South Northants in Westminster, Andrea was delighted to arrange for Silverstone’s Ignition ale to be served in the Strangers’ Bar for the week. MPs, on a first-come first-served basis, can have a local beer from their constituency as the Guest of the Week, affording a great opportunity to promote and support local producers.
Andrea met with Head Brewer Tanel Karjus, Director Trevor Wright, and Sales Manager Rob South, and was pleased to hear that Silverstone Real Ale is going from strength to strength with their beers winning several CAMRA awards. Started in 2008, the company is proud to work closely with the Silverstone Circuit to celebrate more than sixty years of motor sport on their doorstep.
Andrea said:
“South Northamptonshire produces some of the best food and drink you’ll find anywhere in the country, and our growers and producers play a vital role in our local economy.
“It was a pleasure to meet Tanel, Trevor and Rob in Westminster and to hear how well Silverstone Real Ale is doing. Silverstone is a gem in the beautiful South Northants constituency, and it is great to see the brewery working so closely with our excellent Silverstone Circuit, particularly in their support of the Silverstone Classic weekend in July.
“I was also pleased to hear that they are supporters of apprenticeships, and are looking to take on two new apprentices as soon as possible. I run my own annual apprenticeship scheme in my Towcester office for local school leavers, and I would encourage all businesses to look at the excellent benefits, to both employer and employee, that an apprenticeship can provide.
“The Ignition ale was very popular, and I enjoyed the opportunity to pull a pint with the Silverstone team. It’s always a pleasure to host our local brewers in Parliament and provided me with a rare opportunity to visit the Strangers’ Bar; something that was certainly noted by my colleagues!”
