A North-east craft brewery is celebrating landing another supermarket chain contract after securing a deal to supply three of its ales to Co-op food stores across Scotland.
Deeside Brewery, based in Banchory, will initially provide 3,500 bottles of its Deeside Craft Lager, LAF and Macbeth brews up to 40 of the retailer’s stores.
Managing director Stephen Crossland said the deal was “fantastic” news for the firm, which has been operating since 2012 and already supplies three other retail chains.
He added: “We’re keen to increase our presence within the growing craft beer drinker community and we are really pleased that Deeside brews are now an option for those shopping in Scottish Co-op stores.
“We’re passionate about our quality products, each of which is hand crafted on site, and we’re confident that our three signature brews will be as well received, as they have been with our Sainsburys, Asda and Tesco purchasers, by Co-op consumers too.”
The independent brewery uses water from the River Dee in its range of small batch ales and lagers.
