John Healey MP has arranged for Rotherham’s own Chantry Brewery to supply a guest ale for visitors and MPs in Parliament.

The brewery is supplying its Parkgate 200 beer to the Strangers Bar in Westminster.

The beer commemorates 200 years since the Parkgate area was established and celebrates its rich industrial history and heritage.

It was in 1823 when an ironworks and small steelworks were originally built in Parkgate.

Wentworth and Dearne MP, John Healey, said: “It was great to welcome Sean, Kevin, Adele and Mick from Chantry Brewery to Westminster and showcase their Parkgate 200 brew in the Strangers Bar.

“Chantry Brewery really has gone from strength to strength over the last decade and I know how much hard work goes into each and every beer they produce.

“It’s also a fantastic opportunity for visitors, guests and MPs to taste what Rotherham has to offer as well as celebrating 200 years of the Parkgate area with their Parkgate 200 beer which commemorates our industrial heritage in the borough.”

Chantry Brewery opened in Parkgate in November 2012 and now has four pubs as well as producing a wide range of beers.

Chief Brewer Mick Warburton said: “This is a great chance for us to showcase our beers in Parliament and it was great to see so many people enjoying a pint of Parkgate 200.

“All our beers are lovingly made and a lot of time goes into balancing the flavours and perfecting all of our Chantry beers.

“Parkgate 200 has been specially brewed to commemorate the history of Parkgate and at Chantry we are proud of our history and remember our roots as we strive to share our real ale with the world.”

Chantry Brewery’s Parkgate 200 was made a guest ale at the Strangers Bar in Parliament from Monday 24th April.
