A local brewery and an Aberdeenshire butcher have teamed up to produce a limited-edition burger with Aldi stores.

Deeside Brewery, based in Lochton of Leys, Banchory, got together with Inverurie butcher, John Davidsons, to create a special ‘beer burger’ - which is set to go on sale for supermarket giant Aldi’s summer beer festival.

John Davidson, owner of the renowned local butchers, created the special burger using Deeside Brewery’s Swift American Pale Ale to celebrate its inclusion in the beer festival.

The burger, which is available to buy for a limited period from John Davidsons, is made of premium steak which has been infused with Swift ale to create a melt-in-the-mouth texture and intense burst of flavour.

John said: “We used an innovative process to turn the ale into jelly-like pieces that can be mixed through the steak burgers to create a flavour that really packs a punch.

‘‘The citrus notes from the ale provide a refreshing and zingy taste to the burger, which is ideal for a summer BBQ.”

Swift, an American-style pale ale, is a crisp dry and hoppy session ale.

t will be on sale in Aldi stores for £1.99 throughout the beer festival.

Richard Holloway, Scottish managing director at Aldi, said: “Creating a beer flavoured burger with John Davidsons in celebration of the beer festival, and just in time for BBQ season, has been great fun.

‘‘This match is sure to whet the appetite of food and drink lovers across the Aberdeenshire area.”
