The Lidl summer Isle of Ale festival is back in stores - here's what beers are on offer.

Celebrating the best of Scotland’s craft beer scene, Lidl’s Isle of Ale festival returns with a fun and fruity-inspired line-up.

The latest festival was curated to appeal to craft beer lovers that want to bag a bargain, and will feature 20 beers from 15 breweries hailing from all parts of Scotland.

Must-try beers include the tropical fruit-inspired IPA Fruit Shute Amplitude (4.5% ABV) from Dundee’s 71 Brewing, the refreshing sour ale Zest Life (4% ABV) from Aberdeenshire’s Six Degrees North and the super hoppy New England IPA (5.3% ABV) from Stewarts Brewing.

Meanwhile, a selection of lagers, pilsners and IPAs from Edinburgh Beer Factory, BrewDog and Wooha ensure plenty of refreshment this summer, no matter what the weather.

Lidl’s Head of Scottish Buying, Paul McQuade, said “The upcoming Isle of Ale beer festival is all about fruity and interesting flavour profiles and the creativity of Scotland’s most loved breweries.

“The collection brings together some of the best beers from across the country at great prices.

“At Lidl, we strive to support local producers by championing the very best Scotland has to offer and the Isle of Ale festival is no exception.”
