ALDI Scotland Scottish Beer Festival and search for official taster
Aldi Scotland is launching a nation-wide search for 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.
Aldi Scotland will then assess the independent data gathered and 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. .
Launching on 28th October, the beer festival will see 11 different Scottish suppliers take centre stage across all 98 Aldi Scotland stores.
To be considered, beer-lovers simply have to provide a summary of why they would be best suited to the position. To apply, they should visit the Aldi websitewww.aldi.co.uk/scottishbeerfestival
