Lerwick IPA and Azure part of Morrisons’ new Scottish craft beer range


IPA and Azure Morrisons launch

Morrisons have extended their craft beer range and introduce their customers to an expansive range of high quality craft beer from Scotland by working collaboratively with the Food and Drink Hub (Scotland) Ltd and a variety of Scottish brewers. This comes amidst demand from Scottish consumers for new, innovative craft beers from local producers.

The Food and Drink Hub’s beer expert, Steve Wallace, worked with Scottish breweries and Morrisons to identify some of the best beers available from Scotland.

Isla Mercer, Chief Executive of Lerwick Brewery said: “We are delighted to be part of Morrisons new Scottish craft beer range. Food and Drink Hub have done a fantastic job of coordinating this deal and understanding the collaborative nature of the Scottish brewing industry allowing this extensive range increase to happen.”

The Food and Drink Hub’s team has over 70 years of retail and buying experience. The team includes Steve Wallace who is one of Scotland’s leading beer buying experts.

Steve Wallace, Head of Commercial at the Food & Drink Hub commented:
“The craft beer scene in Scotland is thriving both in terms of number of breweries and the quality of liquid being produced and the Scottish beer consumers want to try the vast array of different styles of beers being brewed by both established and new breweries alike. Morrisons have always had a strong heritage in selling a diverse range of quality beers and we are delighted to have worked in partnership with Morrisons and the Scottish brewing community to enhance this range further.” Morrisons Scottish Beer Festival is the first step in Morrisons extending their range of Scottish craft beers across the Scottish store estate.
