Jonny Dixon scored as Aldershot came from behind to earn a draw.
Aaron Webster converted Kris Taylor's right-wing cross to put Burton ahead before Aldershot won a penalty after Darren Tinson handled inside the box.
Saul Deeney saved Dixon's strike but could not prevent the striker from converting the rebound.
Deeney also saved from Dixon prior to the equaliser and Nick Crittenden later on, while Nikki Bull made a superb late save from Shaun Harrad's header.
