When thirsty West of Scotland drinkers cleared the Foreign Legion international beer bar at this year's Paisley Beer Festival a full day before the festival finished, a certain crisis was averted when a new beer Knight in shining armour stepped into the breach to save the day with a much needed delivery of bottles from Flying Dog, Great Divide, Odell and Victory.
The Knight in question was new Scottish based beer webshop, Alesela. It has only been up and running since the start of May but it looks as if it with be a great source for hard to get bottles from some of Scotland's independent microbreweries.
It not only offers a range of beers from breweries such as Tryst, Kelburn, Oban Bay, Ayr, Sulwath, Williams Bros, Islay, Isle of Mull and Madcap but also promises interesting beers from further afield as well as one off guest bottled beers.
It looks good and I wish Alesela all the very best in their new venture of bringing quality (apart from Innis and Gunn) Scottish beers to a wider audience.
