Local craft brewers’ beers will be in the spotlight during the Lidl Scottish Craft Beer Festival.
North-east beer firms Brew Toon and six°north and Orkney-based Orkney Brewery all have beers featuring in the Lidl craft beer festival which kicks off today (Thursday May 13).
Launching across Scottish stores, award-winning Laurencekirk-based six°north’s Paradise wheat beer is included in the line-up.
Using only local Scottish water and the finest imported hops, Paradise is a full-bodied creamy wheat beer. With a citrus hint, it has a spicy finish due to the pink peppercorns and grains of paradise spice. It is served in a 330ml bottle and is priced at £1.49.
The offering from Orkney Brewery is their Northern Light pale ale which will retail at £1.59 for a 500ml bottle.
Named after the lights of the aurora borealis, regularly viewed in our northern skies, this refreshing beer sees citrus flavours combine with a hint of fresh bread, giving way to spice, citrus and apricot hoppiness.
It has a delicious crisp hop character without being overly aggressive.
Lemon Libertea citrus pale ale from Brew Toon is also included in the festival line-up. It is a citrus pale ale which has been brewed with zest and tea leaves to create a refreshing summer beer that is reminiscent of a lemon iced tea.
Light and sessionable, the team brewed the beer using lemongrass and Earl Grey tea that was sourced from our Edinburgh-based leaf tea experts, Eteaket.
It is served in a 330ml bottle and priced at £1.49.
With prices starting at just £1.29, this month’s festival features 19 beers from 11 different Scottish brewers including fan favourites and new profiles set to become the ultimate summer sips.
