Lidl has launched a banana bread beer as part of its wider craft beer selection of more than 20 British varieties in time for summer.

The Banana Bread Beer is a 5.2% ale with a flavour inspired by everyone’s favourite lockdown bake. The beer is made in the UK in Bedford at Eagle Brewery. It is described as being “rich and fruity” with a “banoffee flavour” and “rich malt blend and peppery hops.”

The ale is created from Fairtrade bananas and joins 19 other beverages in the British Craft Beer Festival 2021 selection currently available at Lidl stores across the country.

The beers featured are made all over the United Kingdom and the collection boasts a wide range of new and exclusive breweries.

There are plenty of unusual choices, including a tropical variety with “stone fruit and mango flavours” called Luminous Nights, from 71 Brewing. For something a little fresher and fruiter, the Baltic Berliner from Liverpool’s Love Lane Brewing offers “tart raspberries, blueberries and blackcurrants” in its variety.

Bubble Trouble Pale Ale is also in the offering, from one of the only female-owned breweries, Boss Brewing, of Wales. This one has a pink bubble gum taste for a “nostalgic 70s flavour combination.”

Prices for the selection start from £1.29 and the range is available in stores now.

Lidl are not the only retailer to launch a selection of drinks offerings for summer. Marks and Spencer has launched a selection of fruity gin liqueurs while Aldi released a caramel cupcake gin which tastes like Biscoff.
