Asda and Lidl own label beer

Postby motman » Sat Feb 17, 2018 12:53 pm

Looking through other topics made me think about the bottled beers being sold by the newbie supermarkets and who actually brews them. Shepherd Neame in Kent used to brew a 99p beer for Lidl celebrating various events, such as Burns Night, Halloween and rugby tournaments, but they seem to have been superseded by Lidl's own 'Hatherwood Brewing company' which I assume is as genuine as M&S's Lochmuir fish brand. Any thoughts on who the real brewers are that contract brew Asda and Lidl's offerings? Some of them are not that bad at all, pity the real people that brew them hide behind a contract.
Was also shocked and stunned to discover that Newkie Broon is brewed in Holland now by Heinekin. Is nothing sacred :roll:

Tennent's in Duke Street brews Carlsberg lager, Innes & Gunn beers plus a range of Belgian & Italian lagers! :D

They must also brew Tesco own brand Kestrel Lager because it is brewed "at a site adjacent to Glasgow Cathedral". And it is pretty good, not like the Kestrel Lager from the old days.
Glasgow ya bas!
