71 Brewing’s Sales and Marketing Manager, Victoria Scott-Lewis, said: “As an independent brewery we are continuously inspired by new wave brewing techniques alongside traditional European and modern beer styles. 

“It is always a thrill to bring these exciting expressions to our Lidl fans through our crisp lagers and small-batch brews, especially at a time where we are all looking to the brighter days ahead.” 

With a host of craft lagers and ales part of the line-up, Six Degrees North bring a new and unusual taste sensation with ‘Paradise’ (5.5% ABV), a full-bodied, creamy wheat beer with a hint of citrus.

Another must-try beer is the intensely smooth and fruity Yippie IPA (6% ABV) that kicks a light haze and is crafted by St. Andrews Brewing.
