Home Blog Brewery Update: Lerwick Brewery now Available in Asda

We’re delighted to announce that customers will now be able to buy our 60° North Shetland Lager and Skipper’s Ticket Pale Ale in Scottish Asda stores from 18th April. Our beers will be available alongside beers from Deeside, Eden Mill, Jaw Brew, Knops Beer Company, Loch Lomond Brewery, Stewart Brewing, West Beer and Wooha Brewing Company as part of an initiative by the Craft Beer Clan of Scotland and Asda. The Craft Beer Clan promotes the importance of craft beer to the Scottish economy both in Scotland, and worldwide. Asda recognised the popularity of craft beer and how important it is for supermarkets to keep up with these trends following from the huge success of things like the Aldi Beer Festivals.

At the brewery, we think it’s a great initiative to make high quality beers accessible to a large consumer group with the aim of spreading the joy of good beer as far as possible!
