Labour MP for Sefton Central, Bill Esterson, in a recent debate gave a speech supporting changes to allow for landlords of pubs to have the option of stocking more local, high quality real ales, with the option of landlords opting out of exclusively buying the standard range of drinks from large breweries.
During his speech, Bill spoke highly of micropubs and microbreweries, The Corner Post in particular, he said: “I have three excellent new microbrewers in my constituency alone: Red Star, Neptune and Rock The Boat. There is real consumer appetite for quality, locally-produced real ale.
“The monopoly on beer sales for pub companies and the breweries they own really does not reflect what consumers want to buy.
“The landlords of pubs in my constituency, including the Corner Post, are seeing booming custom and will back me up because they are serving some of the beer that I mentioned from the breweries that have recently started up.”
He continued: “I regularly go to the Corner Post. It is incredibly successful because it sells great quality, locally-produced ale.
“We’ve finally secured a better deal for pub tenants, pub-goers and microbrewers, and I look forward to enjoying a pint of real ale at more pubs in Crosby.”
