Lerwick Brewery, in the Shetland Islands, has signed a deal with UK distributor and wholesaler Ooberstock, to make its beers available nationwide for the first time.

The beers, which include Lerwick Brewery’s 60° North craft ale, pale ale Skipper’s Ticket and oatmeal stout Tushkar, will sit in Ooberstock’s portfolio alongside brews from BrewDog, Hammerton and Eight Degrees.

Graham Mercer, distribution manager, at Lerwick Brewery, said: “Ooberstock is one of the industry’s most interesting and well-connected suppliers. Its growth and profile in the industry is exciting for us as an ambitious brewery and we are sure they are going to be a great partner.

“Securing UK-wide distribution is a major landmark for the brewery, after just two years of operation.”

Stephen Brogan, owner of Ooberstock, said: “Despite being one of the UK’s most remote breweries — closer
to Bergen in Norway than Edinburgh — Lerwick Brewery has lived up to its reputation of providing high and consistent-quality ales in large volumes.”
