The MP for West Dunbartonshire invited the Alexandria-based brewers to parliament after securing a guest spot for its multi-award winning 'Southern Summit' pale ale in the Strangers' Bar.
Loch Lomond Brewery's co-owner Euan MacEachern and sales manager George Wotherspoon were given a tour of the House of Commons, and presented with a certificate on behalf of the All-Party Parliamentary Beer Group in recognition of the quality of the firm's craft beer.
