A BLACK Country brewery served up an award for Dudley North MP Ian Austin to mark his support for the beer business.

Woodsetton-based Holden’s Brewery presented their Beer Champion accolade to Mr Austin, who is long-serving advocate for ale producers across the region and regular campaigner for cuts in beer prices.

Ian Austin said: “I’m delighted to have worked with pubs and brewers on their successful campaigns to safeguard the future of local brewing.

“The Black Country is home to some of the best brewers in Britain like Holdens and Fownes, and brilliant pubs like the Courthouse and the Jolly Crispin.”
