Dundee's 71 Brewing has created a new Pina Colada pale ale for discount supermarket Lidl after success in the Scottish Isle of Ale Festival.

Named Large Hadron Colada, the pina colada pale ale is made with pineapple, tropical hops and a hint of coconut to create a fruity refreshing drink perfect for beer and cocktail lovers.

Alongside the Pina Colada pale ale, Lidl will also stock a Luminous Lights New England style IPA from 71 Brewing – a rich beer, which packs a citrusy punch.

These launches are off the back of the success of 71 Brewing beers in Lidl’s Isle of Ale Festival in Scotland in 2018, followed by promotions across all the UK stores this year.

Proving a popular choice for customers across the country, Lidl has struck a deal to stock the two new and exclusive beers in its stores Scotland-wide.

The new beers will join Lidl’s line-up alongside an exclusive Double IPA from Broughton Ales and a number of seasonal additions including: Fallen Brewing Chew Chew, Williams Brothers March of the Penguin, Orkney Red MacGregor and Loch Lomond Silky Stout.

Paul McQuade, Head of Buying in Scotland, said “Scotland has a hugely diverse craft beer offering and we are especially proud to be supporting 71 Brewing with their first retail listing.

“At Lidl, we strive to provide customers with a quality range of locally-made beers. As Dundee’s only brewery, 71 is known for creating beers inspired by progressive new world flavours and we’re confident that our customers will enjoy these exclusive new beers that offer something different from
the norm.”

The Pina Colada pale ale is available at Lidl’s 99 Scottish stores while stocks last, priced at £1.79.
