Aldi Scotland is seeking an ‘official taster’ to review its entire range of Scottish craft beer being showcased at its 25th Scottish Beer Festival.
The successful applicant will be tasked with sampling 30 Scottish craft beer products from 11 different Scottish suppliers before reviewing and rating them. A crate of the 30 craft beers will then be delivered to their home with reviews expected to be provided in the following weeks.
The independent data gathered will then be assessed and the company will consider recommendations when making future buying selections.
Before carrying out the tasting, the chosen beer fan will spend time with experts at Fierce Beer to gain experience, skills and knowledge in beer sampling. Fierce Beer is one of Scotland’s top craft beer suppliers, and were recently crowned Brewery of the Year at the 2021 Scottish Beer Awards. .
The opportunity has been unveiled as part of Aldi Scotland’s 25th Scottish Craft Beer Festival – an in-store campaign designed to showcase and celebrate the very best of Scottish craft beer, as well as the breweries behind them.
To be considered, beer-lovers simply have to be over 18 and provide a summary of why they would be best suited to the position. To apply, they should visit the Aldi website www.aldi.co.uk/scottishbeerfestival.
Graham Nicolson, group buying director, said: “For craft beer lovers, this really is the ultimate opportunity, allowing you to sample and feedback on a wide variety of craft beers.
“It is really important to us that we source products we know our customers will enjoy and we are excited to get valued feedback from a true Scottish craft beer fan.
“The festival was launched with the intention of showcasing the innovation and diversity of our Scottish craft beer supplier. There are some incredibly talented people working in the craft beer industry in Scotland, and our buying team remain focused on doing all they can to support and promote local suppliers. It’s always one of the highlights for us and our customers, and we look forward to delivering more Craft Beer Festivals in the future.”
