Brewed exclusively for Aldi Scotland to celebrate their longstanding partnership of over eight years, ‘Fierce and Friends’ offers beer lovers the chance to try unique new brews.

The intriguing beverages will be available across all 105 Scottish Aldi stores from Thursday, June 27, while stocks last.

The line-up features a Session Pale Ale in collaboration with William Bros from Alloa, a Belgian Witbier with Scottish Highland brewers Cromarty Brewing Co, and an American IPA made alongside Midlothian’s Stewart Brewing.

While each of the six beers will be brewed at Fierce’s Aberdeen-based brewery, the line up also includes partnerships with three breweries south of the border.

The first is a collaboration with Brew York to create a tangy Guava Sour, a German Chocolate Cake Stout in partnership with Neon Raptor in Nottingham, and a hoppy Double IPA brewed with Leeds-based Northern Monk.
