Briggs welcomes Bellfield Brewery’s listing success with ALDI.

Lothian MSP Miles Briggs is welcoming the news that a pioneering microbrewery business in Edinburgh has secured a national listing with supermarket chain ALDI. Bellfield Brewery’s award winning gluten free beers will from this week be available in all 75 ALDI stores in Scotland. Miles has tabled a Parliamentary motion about Bellfield’s success.

Speaking today Miles, who recently visited Bellfield Brewery himself, said:

“ It is fantastic news that Bellfield Brewery has secured this new permanent listing at ALDI stores across Scotland. It means that more Scots with coeliac disease, or those with a gluten intolerance, will be able to purchase and enjoy their beer.

“ I congratulate the team at Bellfield Brewery for their success and for building up their business so impressively in such a short period of time.”
