The success in store is very much down to the relationships we have established with the best breweries across Scotland and the highest quality of ales they produce.

“We are currently working with 32 Scottish breweries, which reflects our commitment to local suppliers as well as to our customers, to bring them the best local produce at everyday low prices.”

Bob Hogg from Inveralmond Brewery, said: “Aldi’s beer festival has been a positive experience for our brands. As a result of the beer festival, we now have a core range of premium bottled beers in Aldi’s stores across Scotland.  Ossian and Lia Fail are now accessible to a whole new segment of craft beer drinkers.”
