Parliament does something right

Got sent this link by a friend on twitter. It's one of those pieces that you want to see in our newspapers every week rather than the ridiculous 'lady beers' or the stories about how Britains booze culture is ruining civilisation as we know it.

In a nutshell UK based Michelin starred chef Sriram Ayulur has been named 'Britains Beer Drinker of the Year' by the All Party Parliamentary Beer Group.
Ayulur heads up Taj Groups Quilon restaurant in London which is well known for having their South west coastal cuisine paired with beer!
He also did a fantastic job for the British Guild of Beer Writers at our annual awards dinner last year, it's very easy to see just why he has that Michelin star.

I love these sorts of stories.

I got an email from a PR last week promoting it. They had a list of previous Parliamentary Beer Drinkers of the Year. All celebs or similar. I wondered if these people knew any beer-drinking dustmen...

Still, at least this bloke is promoting beer. Good for him.

Just sayin'. These beer drinkers of the year that never have a beer.

Still Sid said it I suppose: "Still, at least this bloke is promoting beer. Good for him."

Nice to see the promotion of beer in the public that isn't immediately criticised by someone.
