The Ola Dubh sounds right up my street, except the cost of it. Wow, that is commanding a rather large price tag!
Good brewery HARVIESTOUN. While £3 may be steep for a beer at Lidl, it's nothing compared to some of the craft stuff out there.

£2.99 for Old Dubh 12 is well worth it.

It's £4.50 direct from the brewery
They've had march of the penguins on South of the border before, hopefully will this time. I'm only 100 mile south.

The way you were going on about it, I thought it was £20 or something....

That’s quite a cheap beer in my books!

If you think you heard thunder just then it was actually me hitting the floor after passing out!
Wouldn't it make more sense to showcase these beers to English and Welsh customers?
My nearest Aldi (Gorgie, Edinburgh) also has Fyne Ales Jarl and Hurricane Jack as well as Cromarty Happy Chappy and Rogue Wave, all of which are nicer than the ones on the list above (imo obviously). Plus several others from those 2 breweries.
About time the Jocks got it their way..normally the general moan is ..not available in Scotland lol!
Finger crossed they will bring em south for us Softies

Aldi does have a better core range than Lidl including Tempest and Cromarty. Never hot what everyone sees in Jarl, it tastes of very little imho.

If you like hoppy beer I would recommend Loch Lomond Lost in Mosaic which now seems to be in Lidl's core range.

Thanks, will give that a try.
General question - I am going to Edinburgh for a week for the fringe in a couple of weeks. Is beer more expensive up there as always see offer not available in Scotland etc? Just wondering if it's worth me bringing my own up rather than I would just nip to a supermarket and grab some while I am up there?
I bet these will be gone by the time I get up there on the 16th.

There is a minimum pricing policy and you wont get multi offers.

Rough guide would be about a pound a can for a 500ml can at 4% so your Fosters/Tennants/Carling.

Craft beer is pretty much the same as elsewhere as it's always more expensive than the minimum.

You will however get stung with pricey beers in bars around the festival but that's just Edinburgh!

Thanks for the information.
I am going with a young family so will not be out on the ale in the city then but will have some back at base as we are staying at Haven Seaton Sands so might have a couple in the bar there or in the van.
We have friends in Edinburgh so will be visiting them and discovering Scotland as much as we can but have the Haven to fall back on if the weather is not good etc.
