BROMSGROVE'S first micro pub, which officially opened its doors on Worcester Road last week, was visited by members of Redditch and Bromsgrove CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) on Tuesday (October 15).
Those gathered at The Little Ale House tried some of the six beers on offer and Town Crier Kevin Ward officially tested the ale in his role with the ancient Court Leet.
Landlord Terry Bacon was presented with a certificate to verify the quality of the ale.
Mr Ward told him: "Landlord, we present this certificate which you may hang up in your establishment to show all men your ale is wholesome and has been fit for the purposes of the Town Crier's tonsils.
"This ale has been tasted and found wholesome to taste."
Mr Bacon said: "The feedback has been great - people are saying it's a nice place to come to have a chat and a drink, which was what we wanted."
The Standard reported last Friday (October 11) how Bromsgrove District Council had helped the venue overcome some planning barriers to ensure The Little Ale House opened on time.
There are no beer pumps at the venue, with everything being tapped straight from barrels, as is done at beer festivals.
As well as the ales, it also has two to three ciders and a perry on offer.
Mr Bacon has urged people to make suggestions for any improvement ideas and for ales or ciders they would like to see on.
"People have made some good suggestions so far and we're hoping for more," he added.
