Ale-mazing! A new political party based in the Black Country unveiled its new beverage at a micro-bar.

Ale launched by The Back Country Party

The Black Country Party has launched its ale which is called 'Revolution'.

Members of the party, which is standing in council elections this May, gathered at The Shell-Ter Micro Bar in Halesowen.

Party chairman Stuart Henley said: "The launch went really well. This is what the party is about, the community.

"It is good that a businesses, Blind Money, has come on board with us to help promote the ale.

"The ale tastes great, revolutionary you could say.

"Ales are popular in the Black Country and England and there is micro-bars popping over."

The ale has gone on sale in some Black Country pubs.

As part of the launch, the party's logo will appear on hand pumps.


He continued: "This is something totally new and not something you would expect from a political party.

"It is brilliant to get involved with this project, especially as we are an ale-drinking area. Blind Monkey approached us about doing this."

The Black Country Party was formed by Stuart following his spell as a councillor in Halesowen.

His party want to field around 12 candidates in the Dudley borough, alongside a handful in Sandwell and some in Wolverhampton.


While councillor, Stuart campaigned to have an artillery shell returned to his home town of Halesowen.

It was installed in the area of Shell Corner, which is how the area got its name.

The monument had poppies painted on it alongside a soldier's silhouette.
