Jarrow Brewery

The town's Labour MP, Stephen Hepburn, has persuaded Parliament to sell a popular local beer.

Jarrow Brewery's award-winning Rivet Catcher will be on tap in the world famous Strangers' Bar after Mr Hepburn championed the Tyneside ale.

Mr Hepburn, Labour MP for Jarrow, said: “The deal will showcase Jarrow to Government Ministers, MPs of all parties and high-profile visitors.

“Rivet Catcher celebrates our shipbuilding industry and proves we're still producing the very best.

“And it's a nice boost for Jarrow Brewery which deserves all the help we can give it to overcome a few problems.

“I'm a local Jarrow lad who is proud to represent all the people and businesses in area who make this such a fabulous place to live and work.

“Our beers are the best in the country and I want the rest of Great Britain to taste Jarrow's success.”
