Listing for two beers
Bellfield boosts production after Aldi deal
Bellfield produces gluten-free beer
A Scottish microbrewery has increased production after securing a listing for its two gluten-free beers with supermarket chain Aldi.
Bellfield Brewery’s Lawless Village IPA and Bohemian Pilsner beers, will be stocked in 75 Aldi stores across Scotland.
Brewer and business development manager, Kieran Middleton said: “As a young company we are so proud to have this opportunity to supply one of the UK’s leading retailers.
“Aldi have supported us since we launched, listing our beers in their bi-annual beer festivals but this permanent listing gives us a great opportunity to bring our beers to more shoppers in Scotland.”
Since being set up in 2016 by two coeliac friends, Bellfield has gone from strength to strength, recently raising over £430,000 to fund its expansion.
Unlike most other breweries now producing gluten-free beers, Bellfield does not ‘de-glutenise’ its beer using enzymes. Instead, it has optimised its brewing process and recipes to produce great-tasting, gluten-free beer, naturally.
