Aldi announces Scottish Beer Festival line-up - with prices from £1.39

Aldi has revealed the line-up for its 23rd annual Scottish beer festival, which will showcase 30 craft beers from thirteen breweries across the country, with prices starting at £1.39.

Kicking off in-store on Thursday 29 April, the festival features breweries from all over Scotland, in a deal worth over £110,000 to those involved.

Aldi’s Scottish Beer Festival will celebrate the vast range of beers, lagers and ales brewed across Scotland, including products from Loch Lomond Brewery, which was named Brewery of the Year at the 2020 Scottish Beer Awards.

The line-up includes 26 new products, including wheat beers, stouts, IPAs and pale ales, as well as the return of four customer favourites, including Bellfield’s Bohemian Pilsner and Fyne Ales’ Hurricane Jack.

Multi-award-winning brewery Fierce Beer will also have nine of its craft beers featured in the festival.

Fierce Beer won ‘Breakthrough Brewery’ back in 2017 and most recently received 14 awards at the 2020 Scottish Beer Awards, including gold awards for Split Shift and Café Racer, which both feature in Aldi’s festival line-up.

Graham Nicolson, group buying director, Aldi Scotland, said: “Our Scottish Beer Festivals always give our customers something to look forward to and I have no doubt that this year’s will do the same.

“While we hope that many people will be able to get down to their local for the first time in quite a while this bank holiday weekend, the next best option is to support your local brewery at our Scottish Beer Festival.

“We are immensely proud of the strong partnerships we have built with local breweries in Scotland, and I am certain that our customers will enjoy discovering some quirky new brews at everyday Aldi prices.”

PCBF looks forward to our next possible celebration of Portland craft beer in July of 2022. Sales of advance tickets, available through Bold Type Tickets, will be announced as event dates are confirmed.

Portland, Oregon continues to hold the title of The Best Beer City in the World (Travel and Leisure, Matador, and Beer Connoisseur). Portland currently has the most breweries of any city in the world. As of Summer 2018, Oregon Brewers Guild (oregoncraftbeer.org) counted 77 craft breweries within the city limits!

Plan to attend our big outdoor party at the Fields Neighborhood Park to find the broadest selection of local beers, ciders and wine, originating from Portland, Oregon breweries. Only beers, plus ciders and wine, crafted within the city limits of Portland are featured at the PCBF which makes it unique and different from other beer festivals. PCBF is held annually the first full weekend in July.

23rd annual Holiday Ale Festival presents exclusive lineup of specialty beers and ciders in the heart of downtown Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. – The 23rd annual Holiday Ale Festival will take place Nov. 28 through Dec. 2 at Pioneer Courthouse Square, located at 701 SW Sixth Ave. in downtown Portland. The Northwest’s longest-running outdoor winter beer festival – which is tented and heated – will feature 50+ craft beers, ciders and meads in the main lineup, all of which are made or blended specifically for the event.

In addition, the festival will also feature dozens of specialty and rare beer tappings, and a number of Meet the Brewer events. The Holiday Ale Festival is highly regarded as presenting one of best lineups of winter beers and ciders anywhere in the nation.

“Heated clear top tents in the center of downtown, with the city’s lighted holiday tree towering over the fest like a beacon for good beer, definitely set the scene for this festival,” explained Festival Manager Preston Weesner. “But it’s really about the brewers and their commitment to their fans with the products they choose to make. The festival is an opportunity for the brewers to be all in on the creative factor and throw down something really special to share.”

Participating breweries are required to serve a product that has either been made or blended specifically for the event or is a rare or vintage beer or cider that isn’t commonly tapped in the state. Despite being held outdoors during one of the coldest months of the year, more than 14,000 festival attendees stay dry throughout the five-day festival under clear-topped tents warmed by gas heaters. A second level above the main floor, dubbed the Sky Bar, serves additional taps and provides ample elbow room for attendees to relax, spread out and even peek at the revelers below.

To enter and consume beer, the purchase of an entry package is required. Advance general admission costs $40 and includes the 2018 tasting vessel – a flexible BPA & BPS-free polymer “glass” – and 15 taster tickets, plus expedited entry all five days with the ticket. General admission at the door is the same price but includes only 12 tickets and no expedited entry. Advance VIP packages cost $100 and include the tasting glass, 30 taster tickets, special VIP beer lines with little to no waiting, exclusive VIP only vintage beers, bottled water, and express entry all five days. VIP tickets are limited to 250 and are not available at the door. All advance packages will go on sale in late September at www.holidayale.com.

Once inside the festival, a full pour costs four tickets, and a taster costs one ticket. Certain limited release and special tappings may not be available in full pours or may cost extra tickets. Additional taster tickets can be purchased for $1 apiece. Previous years’ mugs or glasses will not be filled. Express re-entry requires a wristband and the 2018 tasting glass and is subject to the festival’s capacity.

An onsite coat and bag check and the Crater Lake Soda Garden raises funds for the Children’s Cancer Association MyMusicRx Program, which delivers the healing power of music to the bedsides of children and teens facing cancer and other serious illnesses. The Holiday Ale Festival doubles and matches all monies raised.

The festival offers several food options, including food from Urban German and roasted nuts from Family Nut Love. To avoid lengthy lines, the festival encourages patrons to attend Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. Event hours are 11am to 9pm Wednesday through Saturday, and 11am to 5pm Sunday. The Holiday Ale Festival is for ages 21 and over.

For more information, visit www.holidayale.com and follow the event @HolidayAleFest on social media.

Annual Holiday Ale Festival Returns to Portland - Recipes

Portland Fresh Hops Beer Fest

WHEN: Friday – Sept. 27, and Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019
Friday – 5-9 p.m. • Saturday – Noon-8 p.m.
COST: Friday admission is limited and is $25, including tasting package. Saturday admission is free. A tasting package is $20. Additional tickets are available. Tickets go on sale soon. Friday/Saturday combo package is $35. CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS.
WHERE: Oaks Amusement Park, 7805 SE Oaks Park Way, Portland, OR

The 16 th annual Portland Fresh Hops Festival returns to Oaks Amusement Park in September with a few new wrinkles, including collaboration beers from farmers and breweries, conversations with innovative brewers, early-entry tickets, live music, and food carts, all paired with 50+ fresh hop beers from Oregon.

New this year, The Cone Wars is a friendly competition featuring Oregon’s world-class hop farms. Each farm is collaborating with an Oregon brewery to craft a fresh hop beer. A crowd vote determines the winner. Collabs include:

  • Baerlic Brewing Co./Indie Hops • Hopworks Urban Brewery/Goschie Farms
  • Ninkasi/Goschie Farms (MAYBE)• Wolves & People/Crosby Hop Farm …and more TBA!

Bines and Brewers (Friday evening)

Brewing with fresh hops presents particular challenges. There are tight timelines, logistical issues and other factors that make it unpredictable, but uniquely rewarding. Who better to share stories from this unique process than brewers themselves? This year, Breakside Brewmaster Ben Edmunds and other Oregon brewers share their favorite stories.

The final beer list will be released in mid-September, but you can find a working list here.

Minors are not allowed on Friday, but are welcome from noon-5 p.m. on Saturday. There will be a small children’s play area – not to mention a huge one next door, as Oaks Amusement Park is open for business through Sept. 29. We will serve craft root beer from Double Mountain Brewery – for the kids and the designated drivers.

The Oregon Brewers Guild believes that festival organizers should pay full-market value for beer purchased for and served at festivals, and opposes the use of “application, booth, or marketing fees” to undercut brewer revenue. The Guild pays market value for every keg purchased for Fresh Hop Festival, and proceeds from the event benefit the nonprofit Guild’s efforts to promote and protect the Oregon craft beer industry.

Independence’s celebration of hops and heritage is back again with the Hop and Heritage Block Party. Concentrated in the streets and businesses of Downtown Independence, the Hop and Heritage Block Party will showcase Independence’s unique heritage and vibrant community. You can look forward to hoppy beer, live music, family-friendly activities, and much more!

The Hood River Hops Fest is an annual celebration of beer’s bitter friend, freshly harvested hops. Hood River County is surrounded by world-renowned hop growing regions, and since 2003 brewers have gathered each September in downtown Hood River to share their fresh-hop beer creations.

8th Annual Sisters Fresh Hop Fest
Hosted by Three Creeks Brewing Co., Benefiting American Cancer Society
WHEN: Saturday, September 28, 2019 from 12pm – 8pm

20+ Fresh Hop Beers, made from the finest hop vines St. Paul has to offer. Fresh hopped cider will also be available.
Pre-order tickets – $12.50 (+ fees)

“Farmers and Craft Breweries working together to benefit the local community”

• Taking the scenic route on the mailboat. Many residents of Maine’s islands get their mail by boat. The charming three-hour ride through the Casco Bay gives riders a chance to see Great Diamond, Little Diamond, the Cliff islands, and plenty more.
• Watching a baseball game at Hadlock Field, home of the Portland Sea Dogs. The 7,368-seat stadium includes a lighthouse that pops up whenever a home run is hit, and a mascot named Slugger the Sea Dog.
• Strolling through the Portland Museum of Art. The building houses works by Edward Hopper, Picasso, Matisse, Monet, and many more.

Visit Portland during the summer months when the weather is warm during the day but cools by the evening. It’s easy to fight the summer heat with a dip into the refreshing water.

During the autumn, the temperatures are mild, and afternoon rain showers are common. The leaves slowly fade from vibrant green to lovely shades of yellow, orange and red. Visitors will enjoy heading to a nearby apple orchard for a day of collecting apples and eating cider donuts.

As the winter months roll in, tourists can expect to see frequent snowstorms and flurries. Snow bunnies will enjoy cross-country skiing through nearby pine forests and throwing on ice skates for a whirl around the city’s many ice rinks.
