Have your say

A brewery on the Isle of Lewis is set to return to Aldi’s in-store beer festival for the third time this October.

The Hebridean Brewery in Stornoway will be taking part in the retailer’s fifth in-store beer festival which is due to launch on 16 October.

Taking place throughout Scotland, Aldi will showcase its largest ever selection of micro brewed beers, bringing its total investment in the craft beer industry over two years to more than £500,000.

Available at Aldi for £1.89, The Hebridean Brewing Company’s Seaforth is a classic blonde ale which mixes a subtle bitterness with a refreshing citrus finish.

Featuring 47 different beers from 47 new and existing breweries, the winter beer festival is set to be the retailer’s largest festival to date, with over 126,000 bottles of beer making their way to the supermarket shelves whilst stocks last.

Andy Ribbens, manager at Hebridean Brewery, said: “This is our third beer festival and, as always, we love working with Aldi. The beer festival allows us to showcase our ales brewed and bottled entirely in the Outer Hebrides, giving the people across Scotland a real taste of the islands.”

Richard Holloway, managing director of Aldi in Scotland: “There is definitely a growing demand for craft beer in Scotland, so holding another in-store beer festival is a great way for us to show what amazing products are out there from some of the country’s best breweries. Our new festival showcases these and introduces some new breweries too.”
