Aldi promote their Click and Collect service
Aldi has saved 25 gallons of beer from being poured down the drain in a bid to help support regional breweries through the pandemic. Customers can pick up alcohol including golden ales, traditional amber beers as well as IPAs and bitters.
The discount retailer will sell 13 craft beers from January 28 as part of their Specialbuys deal.
Aldi Specialbuys are the unique and exciting products you can find online and in-store.
They cover a wide range of activities and hobbies and launch every week with huge savings to be made.
Launching today, customers can pick up a whole range of beer in-store.
We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.
Sadly the offer isn’t available online like many Specialbuys items so customers will have to travel to the store to pick up their favourites.

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK, said: “Lots of our favourite local breweries have been hugely affected by the pandemic.
“As part of our commitment to supporting British suppliers, we’ve found a way to stock great quality and award-winning beers, and also help breweries who are suffering during this time.”
Derby Brewing, based close to Derby city centre, is just one of the breweries Aldi is supporting through these tough times.
Aldi will be stocking its multi award-winning and aptly named ‘Business as Usual’ beer, which is a popular malty and traditional amber brew.
Paul Harris, Managing Director at Derby Brewing, commented: “It’s been a really difficult year for us. As brewers, we take pride in our beer and our craft.
“It would have been terrible to see it go to waste so it’s a massive boost for us that Aldi is taking on our excess stock and supplying our award-winning beer to punters across the UK. It is great to see Aldi supporting local producers in this way.”
Due to the beers only being available in-store, customers should pick up the beverages while completing their essential grocery shop.
There are several rules and regulations in place from the retailer to ensure the safety of customers and staff.
Aldi CEO, Giles Hurley regularly updates customers in an email with the current rules in-store.
In the most recent letter, Mr Hurley outlined that customers should try to shop alone.
It read: “In order to help with social distancing, we are encouraging all customers to try and reduce the number of family members they bring with them into our stores.
“Where necessary we are using discretion, but like all supermarkets we’re asking people to come alone if possible to support social distancing in our stores.”
Customers will also be challenged if they are not wearing a mask as it is now mandatory across all stores.
