Aldi’s Scottish beer festival returns

Aldi Scotland has unveiled the line-up for its 27th Scottish Beer Festival, which kicks off in-store from 28 July.

The festival is set to showcase 25 craft beers from five regions in Scotland, including the central belt, Aberdeen, Glasgow, the Highlands, and Edinburgh and the Lothians, giving customers the opportunity to sample locally produced, top-quality brews at everyday prices.

Aldi customers across Scotland can sample everything from Indian lager and a citrus pale ale from Aberdeen-based Fierce Beer to Loch Ness Brewing’s rich, chocolate stout. Refreshing IPAs from Glasgow Beer Works and a tarte mango sour from Edinburgh’s Cold Town will also feature as part of the summer beer festival.

The festival will take place across all of Aldi’s 103 Scottish stores in a deal worth more than £86,000 to the breweries involved.

Graham Nicolson, Group Buying Director at Aldi Scotland, said: “Our Scottish Beer Festivals are always a big event in the Aldi Scotland calendar. I’m proud that the relationships we have built with Scottish brewers over the years mean that we can showcase some truly excellent beers to a wider audience, while maintaining everyday amazing Aldi prices.

“The summer event will have beers from five different corners of Scotland, showcasing the breadth of talented producers we have on our doorstep.”
