Mine’s a Pint: Ind Coope and Havering’s Brewing Heritage explores hundreds of years of beer and beer-making, from medieval ale houses to modern micro-breweries, and features items donated and loaned by residents.

It was opened at Havering Museum in Romford by author and former brewery employee, Patricia Pound.

Mrs Pound said: “It gave me tremendous pleasure to launch the exhibition and see the work which has been done by the exhibition team.

“Both my husband Birger and myself worked in the brewery, which was like a big family, so it was wonderful to have had the opportunity to open the exhibition.”

The High Street museum is holding talks to complement the displays which run until March 20.
