Chancellor George Osborne told Daybreak he may toast his speech to the Conservative Party conference today with a bottle of beer brewed in honour of former leader Margaret Thatcher.
The conference in Manchester was opened with a video tribute to Baroness Thatcher, who died in April.
"This is an opportunity for the party she led as Britain's first woman Prime Minister to pay tribute to her memory."
Asked if he had tried a pint of "Our Maggie", the Chancellor answered, "I haven't had a chance yet, but maybe after I have delivered my speech I will have a pint."
The Chancellor set out a tough new policy which will require future Tory governments to run an absolute surplus during periods of growth.
The costs will determine just how enthusiastic lenders are about jumping into the government's new scheme.
'Help to Work' sounds innocuous enough but it is a major gear change in the government's attempt to curb welfare costs.
