A new Titanic beer – by order of the Mother of Parliaments
A new beer from the Potteries is exclusively on sale at one of the UK’s most exclusive bars. Titanic Brewery has brewed a special beer at the request of the Serjeant at Arms of the Houses of Parliament.
Olde Maudit, named after Nicholas Maudit, the first Serjeant at Arms, will go on sale on a regular basis in Parliament’s famous Strangers’ Bar.
The regular order follows a request to Burslem based Titanic Brewery to provide an ale for a Houses of Parliament barbecue for Serjeants of Arms from around the world, hosted by the current Houses of Parliament Serjeant, Lawrence Ward.
Sam Warrilow, Manager of the Sample Room at Titanic Brewery, attended the barbecue to present the first brew of Olde Maudit to the Serjeant at Arms and his guests.
“The barbecue was held on Parliament’s famous outdoor Terrace and was a fabulous occasion with guests from across the globe, including the US, Canada and Australia,” said Sam.
“Olde Maudit, an easy drinking golden beer, was brewed as a one off for the occasion, but it clearly went down well as we have been informed that the Strangers’ Bar would now like to stock it regularly.”
The invitation to Titanic to come up with a beer for the special barbecue came on the recommendation of Staffordshire MP Andrew Griffiths, Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Beer.
“Mr Griffiths is a friend of Titanic Brewery, having campaigned for beer tax reductions alongside our own Managing Director, Keith Bott,” explained Sam. “It was an honour to be asked to brew Olde Maudit and we are thrilled to have been asked to become a regular supplier to Parliament.”
